Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Sanderson(2021)

Mr. Bradley David Sanderson passed away on Friday, February 12, 2021, at the age of 62 years. Brad was born on July 21, 1958 to Stan and Evelyn Sanderson in Biggar, SK. He was employed by F. Millar Excavating as a heavy equipment operator for almost 28 years. Brad took great pride in his work and loved what he did. He was always the first to crack a joke - his favorite was a classic ‘dad’ joke. Brad loved his kids, grandkids and family more than anything else in life. His Donald Duck impression was enjoyed by many throughout the years. Brad did not need a lot to be happy and enjoyed the simpler things in life, like a good game of pool. He had a curious mind and was always reading up on science and history facts. Brad will be lovingly remembered by his daughters, Sarah Sanderson (Jon Schneider), Nicole Sanderson, Aimee (Steve) Donnor; grandchildren, Carter and Cale Schneider and Owen Donnor; mother, Evelyn Sanderson; sister, Stanice (Roger) Martin; nephews, Branden (Serina) Martin and Tyler (Christina) Martin. Brad was predeceased by his father, Stan Sanderson; step-father, Jack Phare and brother, Randy Sanderson. A private interment will follow this summer in the family plot at the Maple Creek Cemetery. If friends so desire, memorial donations in Brad’s name may be made directly to Canadian Mental Health Association, 204 - 1865 Dunmore Road S.E. Medicine Hat, Alberta T1A 1Z8.

    Dear Tanny, Rog, Aunty Ev & family,
    Words cannot express our sorrow at the news of Brad’s passing. Ian & I have many memories of him when we were kids & many more from summers in Maple Creek & reunions. He always made us smile & laugh, especially with his Donald Duck voice. I remember him cracking us up at my wedding & Herb literally being on the floor, weak with laughter, begging him to stop! Our hearts break for you & Aunty Ev. We pray that Brad has found the peace he so needed. And we pray for comfort & strength for your family in the days ahead. May memories & love sustain you, & when you remember him, let it be with smiles instead of heartbreak. Love & hugs to you all. With our heartfelt sympathies,
    Donna, Ray & Ian.💕🙏🏼💕
