November 11, 1940 — October 27, 2019

Sanford Lee Steven "Sandy" Kiesel, age 78, passed away October 27, 2019.

Sandy was born November 11, 1940, to Herbert and Laurie Haney. He was a graduate of Westport High School.

He served in the U.S. Army as a Clerk and was recognized as Expert in Rifle M-14.

Sandy was a filmmaker, producer and director at Calvin's Productions in Kansas City, MO, until the business closed in 1982. Sandy then changed career paths and ran a guttering company for many years before he joined Calico Apartments in Grandview, MO, as a maintenance specialist. Sandy didn't slow down in retirement. He continued to work part time at Calico and volunteered at the Central Avenue Center of Hope in Kansas City, KS. He was a dedicated member of the Institute for Historic and Educational Arts (IHEA) where he was a role model providing significant behind the scenes services and also demonstrating crafts such as leather work to the attendees of the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. Sandy was also a blacksmith and beloved mischief-maker.

He was preceded in death by his parents and grandmother, Myrtle Kiesel.

Sandy will be missed and will leave a hole in many of our hearts.

Rest in peace, dear friend.

My sympathies to the family and friends of Sandy. I will miss my high school and after high school good friend. We shared some growing up together in those early years. I have 1/3 of a Canadian paper Dollar as a memory of a summer trip Sandy, Mike Gafney and I kept following a drive north to Canada in Sandy's car. One of several trips the three of us made during a break from our summer jobs in high school and college. We were free spirits and good friends. We have kept in touch in later years only when I have returned to Kansas City from my home in California. He was always a caring, thoughtful friend. I will miss him!

Heck-of-a guy. So glad I knew him. We will all miss his views on EVERYTHING.
