Sanford Remembered as Dedicated, Caring

May 12, 1993|TINA DAUNT

County Assessor R.J. (Jerry) Sanford, who died last week after suffering a stroke, was remembered by friends and co-workers at a Tuesday funeral service as a thoughtful, caring man who dedicated his life to serving the public.

"He always was considerate," said former Supervisor Ed Jones, who was among about 400 people who attended the morning service at Ted Mayr Funeral Home in Ventura.

County officials said Sanford was stricken last Wednesday evening at his home in Oak View. He was taken to Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, where he died Thursday morning. He was 57.

Sanford joined the county 31 years ago as a appraiser trainee. He was serving his second four-year term as assessor.

Sanford was buried at Ivy Lawn Memorial Park in Ventura.

He is survived by his wife, Louise; three children, and two grandchildren.
