Obituary: Sanders, Gary Wayne

Gary Wayne

Oldest son born to Billy and Marilu Sanders passed away unexpectedly 2-29-16 joining his dad in rest (they are probably watching roller derby while having a beer).
Gary spent most of his life hanging out and creating friends at the Old Lamp Post Tavern in downtown Spokane.

There he enjoyed dart tournaments, playing pool and watching sports on the big screen.

He liked to read, watch old TV shows and bug his littlest sister.

Gary was a great guy - he would do anything for anyone.

Gary has been strong and fighting his various medical issues for many years…Now he is no longer suffering.

Gary will be greatly missed by his faithful dog Sneakers, his mom, brother Kevin, three sisters Debbie, Lauri and Julie, extended family members and many friends.
CHEERS Gary - we love you!
Join us in celebrating Gary’s life, Friday, March 11th, 3:30 - 7:30 at Satellite Diner & Lounge, 425 W. Sprague Ave.
