When Larry started Wilson Service Company he only envisioned being a one-man show. However, as business grew so did the need for a second person. As a family ran business many people don’t know that Sandy is actually Larry’s son-in-law. What started as Sandy helping out every now and again turned into a couple days a week, and now he works full-time for WSC.
Sandy grew up in Newton, Kansas in a large family of 5 children. After graduating high school he moved to Franklin County. It took a couple moves back and forth before he decided to permanently stay in Ottawa. Sandy has 3 children (Larry’s grandchildren) – 2 boys, and just welcomed a baby girl in June of 2017.
Sandy started off working in the medical field as a firefighter and EMT. Then he transferred into working in long-term care. In fact, he actually still works there on the weekends passing medications because he enjoys the residents he takes care of. That being said, like many people, he grew tired of doing the same tasks day after day and was looking for a change. HVAC has given him that new passion to accept a new challenge daily.
Sandy received his fire fighting training through the University of Kansas, and his EMT training at Hutchison Community College. Then he moved on to do his CMA/CNA training through Hutchison Community College and Neosho County Community College. Although Sandy is still interested in volunteer fire fighting, with the needs of his young family he doesn’t feel like he has the time to provide the commitment needed. Sandy also has a passion for meteorology and storm chasing and is part of the storm spotter network. Sandy also enjoys taking many pictures and videos.
Sandy has been with WSC since August of 2016 and has become a huge asset to our company. With continued training and as a certified EPA technician Sandy takes on many of the day-to-day tasks such as service, repairs, and installations. Sandy is known for taking his time, double-checking, and making sure the HVAC system is operating properly and safely before leaving. Sandy takes great pride in his workmanship.
