St. Martin's is where I met the Sadlers many, many years ago. They were so instrumental in helping our church support a Vietnamese family to our country. It was not only to provide financially, but to set up house-keeping for the family. Everything was new to them as they didn't even know what a toaster was or any of our conveniences, let alone how to use them. There was a lot of cultural changes that the Sadlers helped them to best adjust and become comfortable in our country. It was a big undertaking!

They were a giving couple and always thinking of others. I remember my husband and I were in a horrible car accident on our way to church one sunday morning. Even though they had moved to another area, the Sadlers sent us a get-well card to each of us every week for months. They have no idea how much that meant to us at the time. Thank you for your kindness.

I am sorry for Archie's passing but I know the Lord knew it was time. Prayers to you Ruby.

Growing up in Houston, mutual members of St. Martin's Lutheran Church, the Sadlers were like a second family to me! I thought of Debbie, Denise, Diane, and Dean as sisters and a brother; always fun, friendly, and supportive. We shared so many laughs together in the youth group, sponsored, for a time, by Archie and Ruby. I always felt welcome and comfortable with them, whether involved in church activities or hanging out at their house. Archie was so kind, so gentle, with a glint in his eye and a ready smile. Always quick to lend a helping hand, he possessed a quiet wisdom that guided many of us through our teen years and beyond. I miss his humble, reverential demeanor, his warm heart, and his infectious spirit! He and Ruby seemed a perfect match for each other. I always admired and looked up to them. Archie will be missed!. Our whole family joins the Sadler family in celebrating the life of this intrepid, heroic husband, father, and friend.

Now that we have come to the end of our life together, the house we had, the cars w drove, the things we possessed won't matter, What will matter is that I had you and you \had me.
Loved you then,'

always have,
always will.

Archie & Ruby were our neighbors for many years. We shared many meals together. We developed good memories that we will hold dear forever. We hold up our dear fried for God's grace & may he wrap Ruby in loving arms of love & give her peace in her time of grief.

Rest In Peace, Archie. You were one in a million!

Mr. Sadler was my boss/Financial Manager from 1972-‘74 at the Gulf Oil offices on Almeda and Westpark. He arranged my transfer from the closed Beaumont District Office to the Houston District Office. He was directly responsible for my subsequent promotion to the Lubbock District as Office Supervisor and my eventual final position as Director of Accounting at the Port Arthur Refinery. Were it not for the Business exposure he afforded me in Houston I would never have reached my full potential. May he Rest In Peace in God’s loving hands.
