In the summer month of August on the 15th day, in 1941, the sun rose with God's Blessing.  Robert Lee "Bobby" Sanders was born to Ulices and Louise Sanders in Dothan, Alabama.

Bobby was a member of Christ-First Baptist Church, under Pastor John A. Kenney, Jr. in Compton, California.  He, also, would accompany his oldest daughter to God's House of Deliverance, under Pastor Mary E. Pre'Jean in Los Angeles, California; where he received honorary membership status.  

Bobby was a kind, generous man of few words, but full of action.  He was blunt, straightforward, headstrong and generous.  He loved his family hard and was a die hard motorcycle rider, in which a custom designed and custom painted Harley Davidson was a must.  Fast cars and trucks with the glass pipes was his thing, as well.

Bobby departed this life on February 1, 2021.

Sanders of Anaheim, California and Robin Sanders of Panorama City, California; granddaughters: Va'Neisha "Felisha" Lofton of Chicago, Illinois and Shatoya "Shotora" Cooper; great grandchildren: Orlando "Lil Lan" Clemons, III and Briella "Bebe" Harm of Las Vegas, Nevada; sisters: Minister Katie Granger of Dothan, Alabama, Lunette Sanders of Rockledge, Florida and Joan Sanders of Lynwood, California; brothers: Tonnie Sanders of Rockledge, Florida, Earl Sanders of South Florida and Donald Sanders of Richmond, Virginia; a very special sister-in-law and compassionate caretaker: Assistant Pastor Betty R.
