Historical society remembers a dedicated Hinsdalean

On behalf of the Hinsdale Historical Society, our deepest sympathy to the Walton family on the passing of Stanley “Sandy” Walton, a two-time Hinsdale Historical Society president and important contributor to the organization and our community.

Sandy’s leadership was paramount in preserving two important historically significant buildings in our village — Immanuel Hall and the R. Harold Zook Home and Studio. Those who worked with Sandy enjoyed his dedication, love for Hinsdale’s history and his incredible sense of humor.

Sandy’s wife Karen shared the following: “He loved the society, he loved Hinsdale, it was such a special place in his heart. If he wasn’t leading, he was helping support ...”

The Hinsdale Historical Society Board of Trustees would like to thank the Walton family for designating donations in memory of Sandy to our organization. Sandy’s memory will live on through our village’s history and heritage.

The family is planning a celebration of life in the spring and the society will host a dedication ceremony in his honor as well. For those wanting to make a tax deductible donation in Sandy’s memory, please contact the society at (630) 789-2600 or visit https://www.hinsdalehistory.org. — Carrie Rozich, second vice president, and the Hinsdale Historical Society Board of Trustees
