Harry Saunders

Saunders, Harry
age 75 of Cottonwood passed away on February 5, 2013. Harry was born in Colbran, Colorado on October 7, 1937 to Tom and Mary Saunders. Harry was an avid outdoors person who loved to go fishing and camping every chance he got. He settled in Cottonwood for his retirement with the love of his life, Wilma. You could often see the two of them at the garage sales every weekend where he was excited to share his great finds to his friends and family. He served proudly for our country in both the Navy and the Air Force and ultimately retired from the airlines after more than 30 years. He is survived by his wife Wilma, son Andy (Connie), daughters, Melanie and Lynn (Craig) along with 6 grandchildren. Harry is also preceded in death by his son Mark, who we know gave him a warm welcome today. Harry wishes was to not have a funeral and his family will celebrate his life in a private ceremony.
