To; Ruth Sanders and the Extended Families of both John & Ruth,

In recent months we have been trying to locate John & Ruth Sanders after they moved from The AF Village in San Antonio, TX. with no available or contact connections.
It is our sadness that we learned via several intermediary contacts & searches to find that John passed away on March 15, 2018.
Sarah & I send our condolences to Ruth and her families.

We have known the Sanders since 1970 when we and our two girls Marcy & Darcy were stationed at Incirlik AB, in Adana, Turkey.
"TIme is of Essence" and Time passes too fast as we humans learn, especially when it's too late. Being human with our faults, that is what happened. We sometimes fail in keeping in closer touch with our loved ones, and in this case the Sanders.
Sarah & I send our love and best wishes for Ruth in the future.
"Rest in Peace John Sanders" and 'Godspeed on your Final Flight of Going West" .
Morgan, Sarah Barbour (And Girls Marcy & Darcy)

John was a thoughtful and generous grandfather. Although our families were separated by many miles, we will always cherish John and Ruth’s yearly early summer visits. Quick to smile, and eager to share stories about his years in the airforce, travels with Ruth, and time working in retirement at Estes Park in CO, John always made it seem that we’d not been apart for long. His son, John Robert, Jr., granddaughters, and I will always remember him and miss him. Ruth, we’re sorry for your loss. Patrice
