Sandy and Jennifer were married June 27, 1992 in Jefferson City, Mo. and were blessed with four wonderful children. One of his greatest enjoyments in life was taking his family to Silver Dollar City in Branson. Sandy was blessed with a beautiful singing voice and enjoyed singing praises to the Lord. He also enjoyed gathering history on the Missouri State Penitentiary, going to flea markets and antique malls. He loved to spend time at the family farm in Dixon.
