A memorial service for Sands will start at 3 p.m. Saturday at Lighthouse Christian Church, 304 Viewcrest Ave., with visitation at 2 p.m., said Sands' mother, LaDona Wilson.
A candlelight vigil for Sands will begin at 7 that night on Ediz Hook.
On Feb. 9, a memorial “Cruise for Chaz” will start at 11 a.m. at the BMX bike track at Lincoln Park.
Cars participating in the cruise will drive past the crash site on Black Diamond Road and end at the Salt Creek Recreation Area along state Highway 112 for a potluck lunch, Wilson said.
Participants are encouraged to wear clothing with the number 76 on it, Wilson said, which was Sands' football number when he was a student at Port Angeles High School.
Sands was found dead along Black Diamond Road by passers-by at 6:49 p.m. next to the 2008 Buell 1125R motorcycle he had been riding, according to the Clallam County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies and medical personnel could not revive Sands, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities were not able to determine why Sands left the road.
