Obituary

Gene Allen Sanderlin was born on February 3, 1930 in Memphis TN, to Joseph and Mariann

Sanderlin. He was the youngest of three boys: Joseph and Lew. On the morning of August 16th 2020,

Gene departed this earth at the age of 90 and is now in his heavenly resting place. He was blessed to

have been in the company of his daughter Tina when he passed. Prior to his death, he accepted the Lord

Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior. His famous last words repeated often prior to his death were “when

the roll is called, I’ll be there.” Anyone who has known him over the years will have many memories to

cherish. And the family will benefit from the wisdom that he left us with to navigate this thing called life.

He owned many businesses include gas stations and car washes over the years.  He was a model plane

builder and a pilot/owner of his own Cessna aircraft.  Gene could build anything and had a green thumb

when it came to gardening.  Known for his outspoken nature, he was also a truly kind and loving man.

He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings. He is survived by his children Tina Davis, Gene

Albert (May) Sanderlin, Karen Champion, Jeanene Gadhvi, and a host of grandchildren, great

grandchildren, great great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins, neighbors and friends. He was

also seen as a father by many others.
