Amazing husband, father, friend and respected Virgin Islands Attorney, Michael Sanford,

Mike is survived by his wife of 18 years Kim, and their two children Lake and Adele, his
two grown children, Pierce and Owen, his mother Jeannette Sanford.
Mike was born in Ithaca, NY and grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He
