Tyrone F. Sands
August 16, 1946 - March 18, 2011
Tyrone was what we might imagine Achilles and Ulysses must have looked like when they graced the fields of valor in ancient Greece and Troy. He had that special grace which only resides in great athletes and dancers. Tyrone was one whom ancient poets would have proclaimed from the Agora platform for his deeds and triumphs.
Tyrone was a boy who played in Miami, Florida and grew into a man in Monticello, New York. He was an outstanding graduate of Monticello High School Class of 1964. His leadership on the fields of all sports, his grace and exuberance brought honor to his family and school.
He graduated SUNY New Paltz, Class of 1968, and Monticello had him as a teacher.
Tyrone was that hard-to-define individual. He was a man constantly on a journey over many roads. That journey shaped him into what we all should aspire to be. He was a human being. They are rare in this day and age.
Tyrone will be missed by his family and friends with tears, but also sweet laughter.
He leaves to cherish his memories, his mother, Elsada Wright, and his sister, Barbara Wright, both of Monticello; two nephews, Gerard Whitehead of Yonkers, and Abdul Whitehead (Karen) of Kentucky; one niece, Ayesha Whitehead, of Middletown; six great-nieces and nephews and a great-great niece and nephew; several cousins and many friends.
