Scott Edward Sands, 74, entered into eternal rest Monday, November 2, 2020.

Scott was founder and administrator of Sands Care Health Services here in Laredo. He was a kind and generous person who would help anyone in need. He adored animals and was particularly fond of cats, who followed him around everywhere. He earned the name “the cat herder” due to his ability to train his cats to come when called. He loved the sea, he loved walking on the beach or spending a day boating. He once was a scuba diver instructor. Most of all Scott was a loving family man, nothing was more important than family. He will be forever loved and missed by his family and friends.
