Gerry Sanders

July 25, 1948 — January 21, 2022

Gerry Lee Sanders, age 73, passed away on Friday, January 21, 2022. After many ups and downs in his years-long battle with cancer, Mr. Gerry is at peace in the comfort of the Kingdom of Heaven. Mr. Gerry had a career with the U. S. government spanning 20+ years, serving in the United States Air Force, Vietnam, the Reserves, and working as a firefighter for the Millington base. When he wasn’t working, he could always be found outside. Whether he was out hunting, in the yard fishing his favorite spot, or tending to his beautiful flowers and vegetables, he loved to be outdoors. The only thing Mr. Gerry treasured more than his gardens was his family, and spending time with them. He is survived by his wife, Rhonda Sanders; two sons, Tim (Kim) Sanders and Terry (Laura) Sanders; one step-daughter, Jennifer (Shane) Geiser; two aunts; one uncle; seven grandchildren, Cameron, Gerran, Hayden, Trent, Kelsie, Josh, and Caleb; three great-grandchildren, and a host of other family members and friends.
