Harold E. Sand “Bud”,

Age 95, of Minnetonka, born May 20, 1928 to Martin and Thora Sand, passed away peacefully, December 22, 2023, at Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park. He will be remembered as an unconditionally loving and supportive husband, uncle and friend. His kindness, generosity and sense of humor were a gift to all who had the pleasure to know him.

Bud is preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn and siblings: Dorothy Rabenstein; Donald, and Mary Lou Anderson.

Bud attended St. Louis Park Schools. After High School graduation, he joined the army and served in Japan (1946-1948). His first civilian job was with Skippy Peanut Butter. Bud took various courses at Dunwoody then worked for SuperValu, Red Owl and finally, Log House Foods.

Bud married Evelyn Olson in 1950 at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in So. Minneapolis, and they continued being members there, actively volunteering. They celebrated 71 years together in the house they built in St. Louis Park.

Bud’s varied talents and interests allowed him a rich life. Ever the couple, he and Evelyn were active together. They both loved fishing and spent three weeks in Canada every summer for 15 years. They joined together to volunteer at the Arboretum Andersen Library after retiring.

Bud had many friends and was an inspiration to all. He often was eager to help out wherever needed. He was a great man.

Thanks to everyone who shared and spent time with Bud. He truly appreciated your faithfulness in calling, visiting, and sending notes of encouragement on a regular basis. We thank you for the support. A special thank you to the Glenn-Minnetonka for the care of the Nursing Staff.

Bud will be truly missed by several nieces and nephews; sister-in-law, Betty Sand and JoEllen Houtzer, a family friend for 50+ years and caretaker for both during their end of life journeys.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 PM, Thursday, January 4, 2024 with a visitation one hour before at Lakewood Memorial Chapel, 3600 Hennepin Avenue, in Minneapolis. Harold will be laid to rest next to his wife at Lakewood Cemetery.

Memorials are preferred to Arboretum Andersen Library or Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Minneapolis.
