“A hero is an ordinary person facing extraordinary circumstances and acting with courage, honor, and self-sacrifice”…
Tragically, on Friday, February 05, 2016, the life of Sanford Harling III was cut short. Sanford died after running into their burning home in an attempt to save his father. He never made it back out.
Born on June 6, 2003, Sanford, also known as “Man Man”, was only 12 year old and a member of our Norristown Youth Eagles football family. In 2015, he played on the 6th grade team. On the football field, Sanford could be seen cheering on his teammates and praying for them. Off the field, his personality was bright and comical.
He is survived by his loving mother, Dana, his father Sanford, Jr., and his 8 siblings. Our goal is to raise money to help the family recover what they lost in the fire and to give Sanford the proper burial that a hero deserves. The entire home was a loss and we are hoping that our community will come together to ease this family’s pain during this difficult time. Any amount will help and 100% of the funds raised will go to the Harling family.
