Im deeply saddened to hear of Sandys passing. We were corresponding Saturday afternoon about one of his Thompson cases and the Monitor he was building. My condolences to his family.

Wow, what a loss. Isn't it wonderful though that a part of him will live on right here for future generations to learn from, and get to know him posthumously.

Difficult to take this in. What an incredibly interesting person. I really enjoyed all the conversations we had with him and the amazing knowledge he passed on. I was going to tell him that I secured a part in the new Bonnie and Clyde film as a G-Man, I was waiting though till I had some photos to show him. I am now dedicating my small role to him. He will be greatly missed.

I think we will want to do something to memorialize Sandy, here on the board, similar to the "Gordon's Quest" Colt Thompson post.  I'm not sure what it would look like yet, and am open to suggestion.  I can access all his photos that he posted over the years, and maybe we could use them in some manner.  The Gangsters, Outlaws, and Lawmen board, as well as the Thompson board, and a couple of other boards that Sandy frequented here will not be the same without him.  

 

May Sandy rest in peace...

I agree with David to make a special place on the site to honor him and his work.

Meeting him was on my bucket list, most of the time, life / death isn't fair.

We shared many photos over the years, he was a good gun friend.

Life is short, a good lesson for all of us.

Rest in peace Sandy,

Darryl

From Bill Helmer...

 

David,


So sudden and so sad. Others have filled in a few details. We go back to a
Dillinger 'commemoration' when I worked for Playboy, and I visited him and
Karen a couple times in Colorado. Rick Mattix is also gone, and the three of
us had great sport with emails. I'm sure Karen has much attention so I just
wonder how she's doing.

Bill

P.S.  I'd like to think I helped motivate him (and maybe you) in the direction of
Tommyguns.

So sorry to hear of Sandys passing.
I never knew the man but always found his great knowledge that he shared on this forum to be a inspiration for us to learn and pass on to others as he did in his life.

God bless you Sandy, rest in peace.

Terrible news. Sandy was such a knowledgeable and funny chap, I used to email him all the time about my "gangster weapons" research.

 

Cheers
