      Obituary for James R. Sendelbach

      James R. ‘Sandy’ Sendelbach passed away Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Vancrest Healthcare Center in Delphos. 

      He was born in Delphos April 4, 1923 to A. C. "Sandy" Sendelbach and Amelia "Amy" Brückner Sendelbach who preceded him in death. He married the love of his life and best friend, Betty Marie Myers in Bluffton in September, 1971. She preceded him in death on March 9, 2017. Sandy is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, many great-nieces and nephews, and also several great-great-nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by four sisters, Mary Rita Miller, Arline Sendelbach, Joan Ulm and Patricia Arnoldi. He was also preceded in death by three brothers, Norman, Leroy and George Sendelbach.

      Sandy attended St. John’s grade and high schools. He attended St. Louis University through the G.I. Bill, graduating with a degree in Economics. He was a veteran of World War II serving with the 292nd Engineering Combat Battalion in Europe as a radio operator. He was a ham radio operator with the call W8HQS and talked often on the air with his three brothers, also hams. He was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Cubs since 1932. Sandy worked as a Resident Representative for the Social Security Administration until he retired in 1978. He was a self-described average golfer who loved to fish the trout streams and hunt ruffed grouse in the "bush" of the Copper Country of Upper Michigan,

      He loved to write, including letters to the editor, on issues about which he felt strongly. He also authored recollections of his family, his life while working in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in a diary of his experiences in the Army during the Second World War. 

      Sandy was a liberal all of his adult years and took great pride in his Facebook motto, "Tolerance to All." In his college years he wrote an essay, "The Meaning of Liberalism" which served to frame his philosophy of life throughout his years. 

      It was his wish to be cremated. A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 29 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Burial will follow in Resurrection Cemetery, with military graveside rites by the Delphos Veterans Council.
