Sandy Saddler

Sandy Saddler
The Society will be sad to learn of the passing of Sandy Saddler.
 

Apart from his family, Sandy’s life was his piano and his music and some members of the Society will have been fortunate enough to have performed under his direction and with his accompaniment.

 
Many of you may also have been taught by Sandy as he was head of the Music Department at Woodmill High School for most of his life in education and for those of you who sang with the Woodmill Singers, he spent many years with that accomplished group as well.

 
Sandy’s principal talent was his piano playing and I know that I will miss hearing him practise and entertain.   He will be sorely missed.    
 
The funeral will be at Dunfermline Crematorium at 10.00 a.m. on Wednesday 6th August, and thereafter at the Pitbauchlie House Hotel.
