I walked in to Citizens Bank in 1970 as a naive 17 year old to borrow 100,000 dollars to open a clothing shop. No, I did not get the money but much more. Vernon walked me through the steps of business ownership by having me fill out many spreadsheets and many conversations...even introducing me to one of his clients in that business. I have owned and sold several successful businesses in the last 51 years always remembering my mentor Vernon Sanford kind teachings. Paying it forward Sandy!!

My condolences to the family. I worked for Sandy at Citizens Bank and always remember his big smile and learned a lot from him. May he rest in peace and tranquility.
