George Miklas:
It is with sadness that just today I have learned that my friend, Sandy German of Cinncinnati Ohio, has passed on March 16, 2019. I met Sandy when I was 15 years old, at the 1980 Rubber Capital Harmonica Club Festival, held at Quaker Square Mall, in Akron Ohio. Sandy had not played with bass and chord harmonicas before, and was thrilled to play with myself on chord and Herb Eck on bass.  Sandy and I were friends ever since.

Sandy was a member of SPAH - the Society for the Preservation and Advancement of the Harmonica. In 2003, Sandy was awarded SPAH’s Pete Pederson Lifetime Achievement Award.

Sandy German, age 87, passed away March 16, 2019, beloved husband of 66 years of Lee German, devoted father of Ron (Peggy) German, Mark (Julie) German, Laura (Michael) German Samuels and Robert (Brent Carter) German, dear brother of Jack (Sheila) German and the late Sid and Bill German, loving grandfather of Seanna German, Rachel Samuels and Danny Samuels, great grandfather of Kristen and Ryan Lewis. Services Weil Funeral Home, 8350 Cornell Rd., Tuesday, March 19 at 1:00PM. Shiva will be observed Tuesday afternoon, immediately following the interment at The Kenwood, 5435 Kenwood Rd.
