Charles “Chuck” Wyman Sanders

On April 21 at 11 p.m., Charles W. Sanders left us to be with the Lord.  Opelika has lost a true friend and someone who could brighten the darkest of days. His biggest joy was his wife, Cindy; his children, Ken, Kim, and Angela and husband Bruce; and grandchildren, Ana-Marie, Gunnar, Soren; and great-granddaughter, Skylar-Marie.
He was very generous to those in need. He gave all of us many stories to laugh about and share and probably many not to.  He smiled all the way to heaven knowing he would see his daughter Kim.
