Sandy Dell fell in love with Dick Dell when she was 10 years old. She followed him home on April 10th, 2012. She couldn’t bear to be apart from him any longer. Mrs. Dell was a Patriot who marched for civil rights in the 60′s and then for the Tea Party in the last decade. As a young woman she had yearned to be a nun, or marry Dick Dell. We all feel she made the right choice, obviously she did as well. She supported her husband faithfully for decades and always managed to balance the needs of her own business and the needs of her companion with flawless grace and resolute strength. Mrs. Dell was a shrewd, classy, honest to a fault, incredibly reverant woman whose like we will not soon see again. She leaves behind a son, daughter and grand-daughter as well as the legacy of having found her soul-mate and started a family with him, in spite of all odds.
Dick and Sandy Dell have been reunited, and we should all take some small solace in that. God be with you and your families.
Contact Richard@avrc.com if you would like to attend a reception in her honor. The Memorial will be held at Two PM Saturday, April 14 at the Cremation Society of the Carolinas, located at 2205 East Millbrook Road Raleigh, NC 27604. If you would like to pay your respects to the family, please forward them to Judy Baboun, Operations Manager, AVRC at 500 Stinson Drive, Danville VA 24540. In Lieu of Flowers the family requests that you send donations to AVRC. Mom and Dad always thought flowers looked prettier alive and in the ground.

Mr. Dell was a Veteran of the Vietnam War whose career took him through nearly a quarter of a century of service to IBM and included support for NASA, NIH, Bendix, and many, many others. Before founding the AVRC he consulted in International Trade, working in Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Russia. He was the first civilian to enter a liberated Kuwait. Mr. Dell was an exceptionally kind, honest, gentle and thoughtful man who will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and business partners.
