Lommie L. Sanderson

December 16, 1954 - September 05, 2018

Lommie L. "Lee, Poppy and Double T" Sanderson, 63, of Watsontown, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.
Lee was born Dec. 16, 1954, a son of late Lommie D. and Evelyn Sanderson.

Born in Amherst, Texas, it was not long before Lee heard the calling of the Lord and attended South Plains Junior College, where he became a Baptist minister. While living in Texas, he worked for Firestone, Bruckers and operated trucks for TST and Covenant Transport. Lee moved to Watsontown in 1997 where he operated trucks for Milton Transportation and Ganey Transportation. In 2013, Lee established Sans Tran LLC, a trucking company.
Lee, knowing that over the road truckers often had little chance to attend church, he would use his calling to spread The Word to fellow drivers and all who were within earshot of his CB radio.

Lee is survived by his wife of 22 years, Candy; two sons, Timothy (Casey) Lenig and Zachary (Elizabeth) Lenig, all of Milton; his son-in-law, Rob Hunt of Watsontown; "Poppy" will be greatly missed by granddaughter, Marlee A. Lenig of Milton.
He was preceded in death by one daughter, Jennifer Lynn Sanderson; and one brother, Jerrell D. Sanderson.

True to his selfless nature, Lee donated his body to science. Please take the time to visit their website, www.sciencecare.com, so that you or your loved ones can help save lives, advance medical research, education and improve the quality of lives.

His passing will truly leave a void in the lives of all those who had the privilege and honor of knowing him.

A celebration of Lee's life will be announced at a later time.

At the close of Lee's day, you would often hear him say; "Double T-over and out".

Sorry for your loss of Lee. I was a classmate I graduated with Lee from Three Way in 73. He smile and his kindness will never be forgotten. He is having a reunion with HIs family before him and he got to meet Jesus face to face. He gets to sing with the Angels. I am praying for you and the family left behind.
