Walter Reed Sanders

April 12, 1938 — August 15, 2021

Walter Reed Sanders was born on April 12, 1938 to Jimmie Ree Sanders and Nanny (Nash) Sanders in Dickson Tennessee. Walter transitioned to his heavenly home on Sunday August 15th after battling prostrate cancer and being in the care of Loma Linda Veterans hospital in California. 


Walter was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Clyde and Cleveland. He leaves behind his sister Mary Wright(Herbert deceased) and brother Lester Hogans Sanders, Evelyn Darden and their children Collette (Texas), Andre’ (wife Gloria)(Indiana) Jacqueline (Tennessee) Yvette(Texas) and Lamont (Tennessee).

Walter loved all seven of his grandchildren Nikki, CaMariezz, DeEiyne, Mykal, Leon III, Sidney and he had an extra special bond with his granddaughter Lillian. He was also blessed and loved his 16 great grandchildren. He has a large host of great nieces and nephews with Bridget, Lyn,  Tamekka and Lady holding  a special place in his life and heart but never forgetting Rosalind and Ronnie.

He will be missed by his California family because of his kindness, wisdom and his willingness to always help strangers and friends. Special friends  Victor, Judy, and Gerardo and Lavette.  We would have been lost without the help of Monica and Abel.  He served in the Air Force under many different divisions. He would work for and retire from the United States Postal Service. A very wise man he would get his real estate license and have the honor of wearing the Gold Jacket when working for Century 21.          


    ******************************Messages of Love to Our Daddy**************************


Daddy, I know I didn’t call or visit very much and I wondered why…? Well it’s because I thought you would always be here. Now you are gone and no longer suffering I’m ok. You loved me as a daughter and you gave me many life lessons. You fussed when you thought I wasn’t listening but, I took your advice on many matters and I’m a better woman because of you. I love you and I will see you one day. Rest in your mansion that God has prepared for you. Collette

My Dad was a great man who worked hard and lived well. I remember him encouraging me to be successful and live well. Thanks, Dad, for taking the time to share your military experiences and sharing your words of wisdom. Thank you for giving the best you had. I will never forget you, Dad, because they’ll never be another one to replace you in my heart, and the love I will always
have for you. 


“Sadly missed along life’s way,
quietly remembered every day
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you’re always there.”
