Obituary

Lawrence Harrison Sanders, Sr., "Larry" age 69, of Colora, MD, passed away on Friday, February 5, 2021. He was born in Baltimore, MD on September 8, 1951 to the late Paul Sanders and Dortha M. (Oldaker) Griffith.

Before becoming disabled, Larry, a Vietnam veteran, worked in the construction trade as a Drywall Finisher, and was a true craftsman taking great pride in his work. He extended his skills by building his house which he referred to as his castle.

Larry enjoyed boating and fishing on the Susquehanna River, going on motorcycle rides, and watching westerns. He also loved playing competitive Shuffleboard and pool with friends. He will be remembered for his infectious laugh and kind heart and will be dearly missed.

Larry is survived by his son, Lawrence Sanders, Jr., and his wife, Toni; and three grandchildren: Eternity, Siena, and Harrison Sanders. In addition to his parents, Larry is preceded in death by his two brothers: John and Dickie Sanders.
