Obituary – Alex ‘Sandy’ Hatch
July 17, 2009
It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of our dear and loyal friend, husband and father, Alex "Sandy" Hatch on Wednesday July 15th, 2009. Born in Massachusetts on February 8th, 1957, Sandy and his family were 15-year residents of Park City before moving to Interlaken in Midway, Utah, to open the Midway Mercantile Antique Store. Those who live here will remember his upbeat, statistics-packed voice on the morning snow report on KPCW for Deer Valley Ski Resort and his skill as an antique-furniture repairman. Prior to their years in Park City, Sandy and his family resided in Newport Beach and Dana Point, Calif., where he worked as a wine maker and pursued his life-long love for open-sea sailing as a certified captain.
In the mountains that surround us, Sandy found other passions in mountain biking, hiking and skiing. But it was always clear that his passion for his family and friends were what he loved most. The doors were always open at the Hatch residence and Sandy’s smiling face was always a pleasure to receive. He always had something funny to talk about or something amazing to show you in his shop. As a father, Sandy was loving, caring, devoted and humorous, not only with Rachel and Robbie but with every child that passed through his doors. He will be deeply missed by all those whose lives he touched in such a profound and positive way.
Sandy is survived by his loving wife, Lynette, daughter, Rachel and son, Robbie, and sister, Tori.
A memorial celebration of Sandy’s life will be held at the Silver Star Plaza, 1825 Three Kings Drive, this Sunday, July 19th, at 1 p.m. Memorial donations to the family can be sent to P.O. Box 1381, Midway, Utah, 84049.
