Sandra Lynn Alvaro Dick, 30, received her wings on November 17, 2017 after her valiant battle with Cystic Fibrosis. She was born on April 26, 1987 in Titusville, Florida to Dominic Anthony “Peanuts” and Peggy Nichols Alvaro.
Sandi had a smile that could light up a room and personality to match. A humble and selfless person, Sandi loved being active in her community. She was a sister in the Alpha Sigma Tav sorority at Fairmont State College in West Virginia. Sandi loved with her whole heart and would gladly offer the shirt off her back to anyone in need. Her strength and perseverance is to be admired. She loved tattoos, make-up, was a model in several publications, and was enthusiastic about photography and blogging online. Sandi will truly be missed by all who had the honor of knowing her.
Along with her parents, left to cherish Sandi’s memory is her husband of seven wonderful years, Tyson C. Dick of Surfside Beach; her brother, Jesse Freeman, IV of Fairmont, West Virginia; her sister, Derinda Morris and her husband, Dallas also of Fairmont, West Virginia; two nephews; one niece; four great-nieces; her paternal grandmother, Marylin Ryder Alvaro; her beloved fur-baby, Luci; as well as a very large, loving, extended family.
A Celebration of Sandi’s life will be held on Monday November 20, 2017 from 12:00 PM until 2:00 PM at Burroughs Funeral Home, 3558 Old Kings Highway, Murrells Inlet, SC. A second celebration will be held in West Virginia and those details will be announced when finalized.
At the request of the family, memorial contributions in Sandi’s name may be made the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, 3901 North Kings Highway, Suite 30, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.
The family wishes to acknowledge, with heartfelt appreciation, the love, prayers, visits, words of comfort and support they have received during this difficult time.
As Sandi always said, “Always smile!”

Sandy will be missed. Tyson is a special person too, I am praying for comfort to him and to Sandy's family and friends. I was honored to be invited to her 30th birthday party, I just wish I could have known her longer.
