Not sure what to say?

An extraordinary son-in-law, brother-in-law, and uncle-in-law.

A great visionary, a fierce competitor -- a brilliant, generous, funny and loving man.

He took pleasure in small things and expected great things.

A man of unyielding human spirit and unparalleled personal achievement.

Right and strong, solid and stable, courageous and certain.

A mentor and a friend ~ his life was grand and worthy, meaningful and expansive...

We are...

I knew Hy when I was a young girl playing tennis. He was always so friendly and had such positive things to say on and off the court. I really enjoyed every time I saw him at the club. Sincere condolences to the Saunders family and I hope that they can find some peace knowing that Hy is in a better place not suffering from Alzheimer's anymore.

With love,
Debbie Robb

Hy Sanders is and was evertything you stated in his obituary. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Hy on several occasions and thoroughly enjoyed working with him. He was a visionary with integrity and determination. He leaves a legacy of integrity and an example of a life well lived. May your heart be fillled with the example he leaves for all of us to strive for.

I am extending my condolences to the family of Hy Saunders. May the entire family find peace in knowing that God cares for you and will help you during these difficult times. 1 Peter 5:6,7

It was very hard to hear of Hy's passing. As a member of the SWDC legal team for 20 years, Hy not only brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the company, but he brought wonderful stories and a great sense of humour. I have missed seeing him in the mornings, waiting in the parking lot, ready to take on the day. I have so many great memories of Hy but one of my favorite memories is of him taking me on a tour of the entire SWDC water system. The excitement he had when telling me...

We are so glad we got to know Hy. What a special person he is and was able to accomplish so much! Our thoughts are with you and we wish you peace and comfort.

My thoughts go out to Emily Saunders Fox (Hy's daughter) and her boys. We love you and are with you. We will do our own celebration of Hy's life and greatness. XO

Always Your cousin Janice Larsen Clayton and husband John
