William Taylor Sands left this ole world Tuesday night, October 19, 2021, and entered his eternal home to be with the Lord. He was known as a sweet, kind, true gentleman with a calm, quiet demeanor who would lend a helping hand whenever needed, a builder and fixer of most anything, and an avid animal whisperer. He also loved storytelling. He loved his wife passionately and had a constant goal to please her. He fought a good fight, battling cancer the past few years. His suffering is now over. He will be greatly missed! “Well done, good and faithful servant. … Enter into the joy of your Lord! William was preceded in death by his parents: Daniel Sands and Margaret Leoma (Ward) Sands, brothers: Dewayne, Lowell, and Ronald Sands, sister: Arletta Sands, son: David Sands, granddaughter: Amber Westhoff, and great granddaughter: Elowen Headrick.

Gibson, Emma Gibson, Elijah Bogart, 14 great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, High Praises Church Family, and a life-time of friends.
