Obituary for Alexander "Sandy" Delicate

Sandy Delicate – March 7th, 1971 – November 28th, 2017

Sandy (Alexander) Oscar Delicate was 46 years young when he left us on November 28th, 2017, travelling to the mothership on the other side of the moon. Sandy heroically fought brain cancer for over 7 years, exceeding his doctor’s expectations right up until the end. Even in his very last days Sandy was the funniest person in the room. It was hard to cry and feel sorry for yourself when Sandy had so much humour, joy and fight in him.

Sandy was born in Westlock Alberta, the 4th of 5 boys brought into the world by mother Mary Delicate. Lane and Gene Baker, Dave Kondratiuk and Ralph Yelland have a lifetime of stories to share about their beautiful brother. Sister Sue, reunited with her brother recently, adored her brother and will spend a lifetime celebrating him. Eight nieces and nephews will miss the coolest Uncle ever.

While Sandy lived in many places, he spent a good deal of his life in Picton Ontario where he had too many friends to list. In the early 90’s, sly-Sandusky tipped a Frisbee towards a ‘city-girl’ on the beach at Sandbanks provincial park. Sandy and Sarah got married in 1997; while that marriage did not stand the test of time, it produced Sandy’s greatest accomplishments and his most singular source of pride: his daughters Hunter (15 years old) and Kennedy (12 years old). Sandy LIVED for his girls. Many people make this claim (such that it borders on ‘cliché’), but Sandy in fact TRULY lived for his girls. Leaving them behind will be the hardest thing he has ever done. While Hunter and Kennedy will forever mourn the loss of their dad, they know how lucky they are to have had the world’s most incredible and dedicated father for the very short time that they had him.

Sandy and Sarah lived in British Columbia for many years – here again Sandy had oodles of dear friends, and the west coast of Canada will mourn his loss. Because Sandy was also the world’s finest ex-husband and co-parent, he remained close with Sarah and Sarah’s family. In-laws (out-laws?) Nanny and Papa, Maralyn Tassone, Michelle Arscott and Danielle Hunter, four nieces and nephews and many aunts, uncles and cousins were made better people for having known Sandy.

Sandy naturally excelled at every sport he touched, and he was better at golf than most of you reading this. He loved his dog Gabby, the Leafs and the Jays, spending time with his girls, Homer Simpson, Clash of Clans and Boston Cream Donuts. He loved late night radio, casinos and conspiracy theories, he believed 100% in aliens (which is why he has gone to the mothership on the other side of the moon), and he would do ANYTHING for friends and family. He was generous to a fault. Everyone who knew him, loved him.

The last year of Sandy’s cancer brought him the most difficulty. It is only through the incredible and super-human efforts (and sacrifices) of his brothers Gene and Ralph, his mother Mary Delicate, his Sisters Sue and Lisa and his best friend Ina that Sandy was able to stay at home, almost to the very end, and continue his role as father. To them, we are eternally grateful.

Sandy, we will take good care of your girls. We love you, and we will feel you in the wind. Safe travels.

In memory of Sandy Delicate, the family has decided that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to an education trust fund for his daughters, Hunter and Kennedy. To facilitate this, one can either bring their donation to the staff of the chapel or e-transfer SandyDelicateTrustFund@gmail.com (please send the e-transfer password in a separate email to the same email address).
