Zane William Sand

December 15, 1952 ~ April 2, 2014

Zane William Sand, 61, a 32 year resident and longtime Wenatchee Valley painting contractor, passed away on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. He was born on December 15, 1952, in Milwaukee, WI to the late Kenneth Edward and Genevieve Carolyn (Williams) Sand. At the age of two, he moved with his family to Granada Hills, CA. In 1971, he graduated from James Monroe High School, in nearby Sepulveda, CA. Following high school, he married his high school sweetheart, Laurie Beaver, on May 10, 1975, in Granada Hills, CA. Following a visit to the Wenatchee Valley, they fell in love with the area and, in 1982, they made it their home. Zane began painting in Wenatchee in 1982, and started his own business, Valley Painting Service, in 1989, which he operated with the assistance of his son, Zane. He was a member of the Wenatchee Eagles Lodge, Aerie #204. An outdoorsman, Zane enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson, boating, fishing, snow skiing and the warm waters of Hawaii and Mexico. A master barbecuer, he loved his ice-cold beer, a good steak and the company of his family, especially his granddaughter, Eliana.

Zane leaves behind his wife of 38 years, Laurie Sand, his son, Zane A. Sand, his daughter, Julie Parker, his son-in-law, Brandon Parker, and his granddaughter, Eliana Parker, all of Wenatchee; and two sisters, Jetta (Paul) Rodal of Granada Hills, CA, and Janell Sand of Spokane, WA. He was preceded in death by his parents.

A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held at a later date. Please sign in or leave a memory for the family online by visiting Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee.
