Sanford McFarlane

A close friend of the family died yesterday.  We knew it would eventually happen, but had been very hopeful after the treatments he had been receiving.

Sanford was an amazing man, bigger than life with enough enthusiasm for everyone.  His gregarious nature was genuine and he was always there to help others.  He was successful in business (Davis + Henderson) and life and will be sorely missed by everyone.

    I knew Sanford as a friend and client. I first met him in the mid 70’s as he was taking over the cheque division of Davis and Henderson. I thought at the time they were in a diminishing business. However with Sanford’s energy and leadership, they used technology to increase their productivity and really take leadership. Although they went thru several takeovers, his indomidable spirit and energy made D+H a leader in the industry and a real money maker for the investors. I am honoured to have worked with him and learned from him. He also was a special man who help many individuals and causes in the community. Thanks, Sanford, for the contribution to make the world a better place.
