Eddie Ray Sanders was born on August 13, 1954 and departed this life on April 15, 2021. He was preceded in death by his birth parents, Edward and Eunice Nicole McClendon; adopted parents, Robert and Reba Sanders; and his sister Betty Morrison.

He lived in Pine Bluff, Arkansas from October 2013 to the time of his passing. Before that, he lived in Pinson, Alabama. He graduated from Talladega High School and was a diehard Alabama football fan. Roll Tide!

Ray was very talented with both his hands and his mind. He could fix anything from plumbing to electrical work to computer repair and most recently, gunsmithing. Eddie Ray's dream was to build a successful family run gunsmithing business with his wife.

A very proud veteran of the United States Navy, having served in the Vietnam War, Ray's love for his fellow veteran was never-ending. He expressed his devotion and care for all military personnel through his volunteer work with the non-profit organization, 3 Hots and a Cot, a charity that is all about helping, housing, feeding and meeting the needs of veterans.

Ray is survived by his wife, Yolonda; daughter, Tammy Stewart; sisters, Bonnie Stacey, Jan Proctor, and Martha Brown; brother, Earl Sanders; 3 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren and a host of family and friends.

Eddie Ray Sanders, you will forever be remembered, loved and cherished. May you rest in peace.

Family-directed visitation will be from 11:00am - 12:00 pm on Saturday, May 15, 2021, with the service starting at 12:00 pm at the Hwy. 79 Church of Christ , 4341 S. Camden Road, Pine Bluff, AR 71603.
