Robert Vernon Sandberg: 1925-1971

Robert V. Sandberg
1925 – 1971

 

My father, also Robert, was an ordained minister of  the Evangelical Free Church. He received his degree from Trinity Seminary, now located in Deerfield, Illinois. My mother, Ruth Sandberg (1927-2005), née Campbell, a talented, award-winning musician, played the euphonium (baritone) in Salvation Army concert bands as well as in small ensembles with Army bell ringers on cold Chicago street corners at Christmas time. Dad played piano, guitar, and accordian, and they both had beautiful singing voices. Her alto and his rich bass made for delightful duets, sometimes performed right before dad would preach a sermon. Dad sometimes sang solo before preaching; one of his favorite hymns that I especially remember him singing—”The Holy City” — Last night I lay asleeping, there came a dream so fair, I stood in old Jerusalem, beside the temple there. One of Mom’s favorites was “Make Me a Blessing” — Out of the highways and byways of life, many are weary and sad — I remember her playing it on her baritone during more than one service at the church dad pastored in Evanston, Illinois in the late 50′s.

They met at Chicago’s Midwest Bible Church around 1947 where she was the church secretary. They were married at Midwest in 1948 by Pastor Fisher.

Dad died young; only 45. I was a college sophomore.
