Donald H. Sanderson, 91, of Clifford Lake, passed away on Wednesday morning, March 4, 2020, at home under the loving care of his family.
Don was a great man and had a wonderful sense of humor. Don was a loyal friend who could always be counted on to help others. A fine craftsman, Don spent many years as a finish carpenter and even built many beautiful homes for his family. He loved to spend time at Clifford Lake, having been a resident since the early 70’s. Most of all though, Don was a family man, nothing was more important to him than his family, and he delighted in spending time with them. On February 25, 1950, he married Jacqueline Forrest; and just last week, they celebrated 70 years of marriage! Don will be truly missed by everyone who knew him.
Surviving Don is his wife of 70 years, Jackie, along with their children: Kenneth Sanderson of Stanton, Debra (Edward) Mahony of Fairfield, CT, Scott Sanderson of Stanton, Lori (Joe) Sanderson of Stanton, their grandchildren: Jacqueline (Pat) Bridge, Jillene (Adam) Bonet, Forrest Mahony, Alexa Sanderson, and a great grandson, Zachary Bridge, along with many other extended family members and friends.
A memorial service will be held later this summer at Don and Jackie’s house on Clifford Lake. Memorial contributions in memory of Don may be directed to Have Mercy (a homeless shelter and food pantry) at www.havemercymi.org.
