We had the privilege of meeting Sandy on several occasions, and remember the kind, charismatic, and fun man that he was. Please accept our deepest condolances and sympathies, as he will be greatly missed.
Our deepest condolences for your loss and to your family. We have witnessed firsthand the kind and generous man that Sandy was. As we have learned through our friendship with Madison, Sandy had a tremendous impact on her life and was a terrific father and person. We are sending you strength during these tough times and will always remember Sandy with high regard.
Matti and Rebecca
Although I only met Sandy on one occasion it was a special one - Jake and Madison’s wedding. To see the pride and joy that Sandy clearly felt as he watched the bride and all his children that day, and on into the evening, was a sight to behold. He was a gracious host who welcomed everyone with warmth and a smile that reached his eyes. My deepest condolences to the entire Pritchard family, and to all who will miss this man among men. ❤️
You only had to know Sandy briefly to know that his children were the centre of his universe. He loved them passionately and thought so carefully about how to raise them so that they were well rounded, thoughtful and not privileged. He often talked about his child rearing decisions as we drove around Muskoka looking at cottages.
What a perfect picture you have chosen to be on this notice. It could not reflect Sandy any better. He was a wonderful man totally devoted to his family.
For a period of several years I was a regular at the Pritchard household where I was an academic coach for Madison and later for Baylie while I was completing my PhD at UofT. I remember telling Sandy that I didn't have space for another student when he first called me, and he wouldn't take no for an answer. We had so many interesting long talks about his children and how best to support them in that front room on Birch Ave (he usually had his signature martini in hand!). During that time, my mom was diagnosed with and died from glioblastoma and Sandy was very understanding. He was an incredibly devoted father. I feel really blessed to have known him and will always have affection for his daughters who probably don't realise that they also helped me through that difficult time (when I was supposed to be helping them!). Sending Madison and Baylie and the whole family love and empathy from Manchester, England xo
