Sands had been battling lung cancer with gusto
and an unwavering determination for five years.
Despite his recent chemotherapy, he was back in
the DJ booth at Dallas Eagle and performed just a
week before his death, which he found therapeutic
and exhilarating. He said, "Music is a journey and
on that musical journey, everyone is welcomed.
That is what DJs do. They entertain people with
words, sounds and emotions."
Sands is survived by his partner, Morgan Milli-
can IH; his mother, Judy Sands; his grandmother,
Louise Crotts; his sister, Theresa Marshall; his
brother-in-law, Jim Marshall; his niece, Jackie Mar-
shall; his nephews, Bryan and Brett Wilson; his
aunts and uncles, Willene and Ron Burch, Bill and
Carol Crotts and Phyllis and Skip Steckley; count-
less wonderful cousins; Millican's supportive fam-
ily; and friends, old and new, around the world.
The family said a special thanks to Brian Hus-
bands, Dan Shupert, Bobby Barron and the
Hampton Hills Neighborhood Association. Sands
always said he had the best doctors and hospital
in the world and ended every Visit by saying,
"thank you "
Sands wished to be cremated and plans for a re-
membrance celebration in the next month will be
announced. He also wanted a dance party
fundraiser to be held in his name, which is also
