Our beloved Bud was born to Arthur and Reta Broadhead Sanderson May 19, 1923 in Gunnison, Utah. He married Gwen Bjerregaard on November 1, 1943 in Los Angeles, California. Thank you for the 70 years together.

For 38 years he was an ingot operator at Geneva Steel.
Billiards, bowling, fishing, hunting (especially pheasants) and watching Jazz basketball were his hobbies, along with the almost daily washing of his car.
