Wilford Elroy Sand

September 15, 1930 - February 27, 2015


“A man of few words, but when he spoke his words were always worth listening to.”

Dad passed peacefully, surrounded by his family, at his home in Mountain Lake Seniors Community in Nelson, BC. He was the oldest of three children born to Bill and Elsie Sand (nee Bird) of Kyle, Sask.

He was predeceased by his parents and his wife Lori (2012). He is survived by his brother Lyle Sand (Liz), sister Shirley Schotanus (Dale), and his four children: Garnett, Sharrie, Cyndi (Todd), Jackie (Bob) and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Dad forged many wonderful friendships throughout his work and life and he deeply loved his family and friends. We will all miss him dearly. A fishing trip n his memory will take place at a later date.

The family would like to thank all of the care providers and activity staff of Castlewood Village and Mountain Lake Seniors Community for their loving support of our dad. We would also like to thank Dr. K. Merritt for his home visits and excellent medical care over many years.

To Wilf’s Family: I had the privilege and pleasure to work with Wilf at Dome Petroleum at the Wembley Plant and Field in the late 80’s.The quote in the Obituary was very appropriate. I still saw Wilf occasionally after he left Dome and enjoyed a coffee and a catch up session. Wilf was a special man. Please accept my condolences for your loss. Ed
