Marie and family, so sorry to hear about your Dads passing. I always enjoyed the conversations we had along with the hugs. I remember him working on carpentry projects at Otwellegan he always took great pride in his work. He touched a lot of lives here on earth. Sonny will be missed but remembered!

I first meet Raymond " Mr Sanders" when I was just starting 7th grade,I was friends with his son Ray,when we would go into the house I would meet Mr Sanders and he would give you that Stare that would melt steel, but that Stare always turned into a smile and then a joke. In a short time they became MA and PA Sanders to me. when Ray and I did something stupid and MR Sanders found out, I could see it in his eyes he was remembering things he did in his youth that he should not have done,but like a good father would tell us we did wrong, with a smile. He will be greatly missed and always remembered . My deepest Condolences to the entire Sanders Family. Joe Plesnicar
