McQueeney, Texas - Retired US Army Sgt. 1st Class, Harold "Lefty" O. Sanders, peacefully passed away at his home, surrounded by his family and best friend, Bessie (his dog), on Friday, August 10, 2018.

From his family: the greatest gift he ever gave to us is our family. He will live on in all of us, and the unbelievable values and zest for life he taught us, will continue to resonate through all of us. We will miss him so much but as he always reminded us, we will still have each other.

He is preceded in death by his parents: Walter and Bessie (Maggs) Sanders, and siblings: George, Kendall, Bernard, Walter and Barbara Gabeury.

Survivors include his wife of 37 years: Sally (Mylin) Sanders, children: Linda (Tom "Rabbit") Parker, Ernie Sanders and Natalie (Scott) Haug; granddaughter: Nicole (Paul) Stutes, great grandchildren: Taylor, Patrick, Lucas, Morgan, Connor, Cisley, Maya, Liby, Jillian Stutes; great-great grandchildren: Kristan Connor and Audrey Velasco; stepsons, Shannon, Eric and wife Kathryn, and Sheldon McGallicher; and their children: Heather Darby and Ryan and Kaitlyn McGallicher.

Lefty joined the US Army in 1947 and retired in 1969. In 1971 he worked for Sommers Drug Store and in 1994, retired from the Auto Zone. After retirement, he volunteered at the pharmacy at BAMC from 1994-2011.

A Memorial Service will be held at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery at a later date.

The family would like to thank: Guadalupe Regional Medical Center Hospice nurses, Amanda, Jennifer; social services: Carmen and his caretakers: Alicia, Letty and Mandy.
