Mr. Sandri was a great man. Growing up next door I remember bike rides to Stroh’s I’ve cream store, trips to Oak Park park and if you didn’t have money for the ice cream man, he always had extra quarters! My sympathies to the Sandri family, he was a great man.

Shared many rounds of golf with Russ, Bev and Doug in Florida. He was always a gentleman and had a great sense of humor. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
