Help Bring Mike "Sandman" Sanders Home to Rest!

Mike 'The Sandman' Sanders was a pioneer and beloved DJ in the Evansville Tri-State area. Sadly he recently passed away in Florida. Mike's next of kin is his minor granddaughter (whom he loved very much, and he was her SandPa).

If you knew his story then you know the tragic past few years he has had. It started when his wife passed away, then the loss of his only child, Kelcey. Mike had moved to Florida to help with his mom, who passed away this past July.

Sandman was in the process of returning to Evansville when he was hospitalized with what started as a bacterial infection of the kidneys and sadly never left.

This GoFundMe is set up to help get Mike's remains back to Evansville, where he wanted to be. Any extra money will be set in a college fund for Lyric (his granddaughter). 

Help us help Lyric get her SandPa back!

All proceeds will be entrusted to Tammy Corn (Lyric's grandmother/guardian).
