Eric Georg Sandin (1920-2001)

Contributor: D Created : 1 year ago Updated : 1 year ago

Eric Sandin, Sandviken, har avlidit i en ålder av 80 år. Närmast anhörig är makan Lena.

* * *

En ytterst kunnig och hängiven idrottsledare har gått ur tiden. Efter att en tid ha kämpat mot en tilltagande sjukdom avled han den 28 mars.

Han var född och uppvuxen i Högbo, men flyttade sedan in till Sandviken.

Sitt arbete började han på Manufakturens kontor vid dåvarande Sandvikens Jernverk. Han var verksam på olika avdelningar inom Sandvik och var företaget trogen fram till pensioneringen.

Eric Sandins insatser inom idrottsrörelsen är unika och torde närmast vara ouppnåeliga. Redan som 14-åring var han med och bildade Högbo GIF 1935. Därefter har han i alla år ända till sina sista levnadsdagar arbetat för Högbo GIF och för de ideal som var hans ledmotiv. Längdskidåkning och friidrott var de idrottsgrenar som han främst ägnade sig åt.

Men för att få en stabil ekonomi för idrottsgrenarnas utövande lade han ned ett oerhört arbete.

Många medelålders och äldre personer erinrar sig säkert de arrangemang som Eric var initiativtagare till och som han ordnade med bland annat dåtidens världsartister av vilka flera uppträdde endast i Högbo förutom Liseberg och Gröna Lund. För att möjliggöra dessa arrangemang måste en festplats iordningställas. Detta ordnades genom Erics ledning och medverkan.

Erics största och mångåriga insatser torde ligga i hans arbete med ungdom - ungdom som han tränat och instruerat i såväl längdskidåkning som friidrott. Eric meritlista skulle kunna göras lång men får vid detta tillfälle begränsas till ett fåtal punkter.

Högbo GIF:s styrelse och olika sektioner har han tillhört i de flesta av sina levnadsår.

Hur många ungdomar som han instruerat och tränat under alla år är svårt att uppskatta liksom alla de hundratal skidor han vallat.

Förutom arbetet i Högbo GIF har han varit mångårigt verksam inom Gästriklands skidförbund och Gästriklands friidrottsförbund.

Nuvarande elljusspåret i Högbo anlades och upparbetades under ledning och medverkan av Eric.

Själv var Eric framgångsrikt aktiv som junior inom såväl terränglöpning som fotboll i SIF.

Stora upplevelser för Eric var när Matti Kuosku vann Vasaloppen 1974 och 1976.

Eric Sandin kommer att saknas av alla sina vänner.

Life timeline of ERIC Georg Sandin

ERIC Georg Sandin was born on 21 Dec 1920
ERIC Georg Sandin was 19 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
ERIC Georg Sandin was 21 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany invades the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa. Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
ERIC Georg Sandin was 37 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
ERIC Georg Sandin was 44 years old when Thirty-five hundred United States Marines are the first American land combat forces committed during the Vietnam War.

James Warren Jones was an American religious cult leader who initiated and was responsible for a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. He considered Jesus Christ as being in compliance with an overarching belief in socialism as the correct social order. Jones was ordained as a Disciples of Christ pastor, and he achieved notoriety as the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple cult.
ERIC Georg Sandin was 62 years old when Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, was released. Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. Dubbed the "King of Pop", he was one of the most popular entertainers in the world, and was the best-selling music artist during the year of his death. Jackson's contributions to music, dance, and fashion along with his publicized personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.

The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994, constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed. The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees.
