Sandy (Alexander Gough) Day, P.Eng. Born in Toronto, a middle child with 8 siblings, Sandy graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1943. He designed and built early television sets, and quickly progressed to the start-up and running of television stations, including CKCO-TV Kitchener and CJOH_TV Ottawa. Later, he worked for the Canadian Association of Broadcasters establishing international protocols at the UN in Geneva, Switzerland. Sandy retired to Victoria in 1988 with his late-wife, Doreen, where he curled and lawn bowled; living first on beautiful Harling Point, and much later, at Douglas House (Amica). Sandy was a devoted, loving father/husband to: Doreen, Donna, Lawrence, Tanis and Julia Day, and grandfather to: Handro, Jemima, Marlow, Raffles, Felix, Julian, Kellen and Elias.
