Donald Elvin Tandy

Donald Elvin Tandy, beloved father and friend, passed away on December 20, 2011. At 93, Don was an active member and served as deacon of the Torrance Church of Christ for many years. He served in both the Army and Air Force during WWII and Korea. Whether he was grading bible school lessons from Sri Lanka on his Macintosh computer or writing checks as the church treasurer, he was always ready to help in any way. Don is survived by his two daughters, Sharon Tandy of North Hollywood, CA and Jane Fairchild-Schicker of Fairport, NY. They have fond memories in the 1960's of Don driving the church bus full of the Young People's Group on their way to the Rose Parade on New Year's Eve, or to Big Bear for a snowy weekend outing. All those Shaklee vitamins he took must have paid off, because Don had a very long and healthy life until the few months preceding his death. While his daughters were not quite ready to let him go, he had been looking forward to being reunited with his wife Frances, who died of Alzheimer's disease in 2004. They are finally together again now and forever. Memorial services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on January 7 at Torrance Church of Christ, 3525 Maricopa St. in Torrance (310-370-6339).
