Lawrence Allen Sanders

Larry Sanders, 72, passed away peacfully on April 1, 2019, at NHC Healthcare of Sparta, TN, surrounded by his loving family.

Larry was born September 17,1946, in Highland Park, Michigan, to Marshall and Pauline (Reum) Sanders.

Larry was retired from Wagner/Cooper Industries/Federal-Mogul (Sparta) after 28 years of service as a machine mechanic. He enjoyed working on and drag racing cars as well as attending cruise-ins in his custom-built Rat Rod. He was well known for his knowledge of engines, transmissions, and carburetors and was always eager to help a fellow hot rod enthusiast solve problems. He was a long-time member of First Baptist Church of Sparta and served as a deacon. Larry was a Vietnam veteran and served with the Navigators and Campus Crusade ministries. He was a gentle, kind-hearted man who loved to make people smile.

He was preceded by his parents and twin brothers, Leonard and Leslie.

Larry is survived by his beloved wife of 42 years, Pamela (Porter); children Angel (Chad) Crawford of Leander, TX, Andrew of San Antonio,TX, Allen (Trisha) of Sparta; twin sister Laura (Doug) Snyder of Hamilton, MT, Brother Marshall (Sandy) Woodland Park, CO; grandchildren Haven and Caleb Crawford of Leander, TX; Jasmine, Logan, and Tori Sanders of San Antonio,TX; and Riley and Caleigh Morris of Sparta; several sisters-and brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews; as well as his many faithful friends.

Memorial service will be Saturday, April 6, 2019, at First Baptist Church, 308 North Spring Street, Sparta TN. Visitation will be at 11:00 a.m. with memorial service to follow at 1:00p.m.

Oak Lawn Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Pam, my heart goes out to you. Larry was a kind man, and your memories of him will sustain you through this time. I cannot. Be with you Saturday. But, if I can help in any way, let me know. Cindy Story
