Obituary

Our beloved father, brother, uncle and friend has gone to be with his Heavenly Father and love of his life, Enid.

Tom passed peaceful in the hospital in Billings, Montana on January 22, 2021, with family at his side. He was 86 years old.  He was born the oldest child of Robert and Hazel Sanderson on January 8, 1935, in Olean, New York.  

Tom was a man of service.  He served his Heavenly Father, family, country (Korea & three tours in Vietnam), church in numerous callings, friends, neighbors and strangers in need.   Tom was a man of great faith and few words, and rarely stressed about things not in his control. He exemplified His Savior Jesus Christ in all his actions and words. 

After traveling the world while serving our country, Tom and Enid settled in Deaver in 1980.

Tom and Enid created an eternal family through adoption.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Enid Brimhall Sanderson & son, James Sanderson. 

Tom is survived by his children Dirk Sanderson (Chrisy) and Molly Kaiser (Kent) of Wyoming, Bob Sanderson (Kristina) of Michigan, and Roberta Blosser of West Virginia, brother Phillip Sanderson of Holly Hill, Florida,  brother-in-law Les (Arlene) Brimhall of Wyoming, sister-in-law Vivian Brimhall-Fales of Montana, and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, one recent great-great grandchild and numerous nieces and nephews.
