We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Riemann Family Funeral Homes - Gulfport
We are heartbroken to announce the death of, Timothy “Tim” Ray Sanders, a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He passed away peacefully at the age of 55, surrounded by friends and family in Gulfport, MS.
Tim had an extensive career in the grocery industry. For the past 11 years, he was a dedicated employee of Southern Cleaning Services Incorporated and enjoyed spending time with customers throughout the gulf coast. He enjoyed coloring, working in his yard, and always cracking a joke. He was an avid fan of the Arkansas Razorbacks and a lover of the one and only green M&M “Marilyn”.
He was born August 7, 1967 in Camden, Arkansas, and he is preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Ocille Sanders. He is survived by his beloved wife of 34 years, Jamie Sanders; his two children, Bailey (Cady) Sanders and Tyler (Hope) & grandbaby Sanders (due in February); his siblings, Richard (Kathy) Sanders, Doug (Donna) Sanders, Sue (David) Hammett and Kelly (Robbie) Langley; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, James and Phyllis Lepoma; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, brother-in-law’s and sister-in-law’s.
Our family would like to express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Allison Wall, Dr. Brian Center, Dr. Peter Bernheim and their staff, and the Memorial Hospital 4C Nurses and Medical Technicians.
