Ken Sandy was a classmate of mine at San Ramon High, and I just want to add that he was a standout teenager as well as a lifelong contributor to the well-being of our community. He was a fine athlete, student leader and all around friend to all. His beginnings certainly indicated what a fine man he would become. It is very saddening to see our numbers dwindling, but a blessing to recognize a life well-lived. Eternal peace to you, Kenny
