Sanders, Kevin A.

November 28, 1959 — July 24, 2022

Kevin Anthony Sanders was born on November 28, 1959, in Kansas City, Missouri, to the union of Charles Sanders and Carol Fambro. Kevin grew up in Midtown Kansas City with his loving mother, his grandmother who he affectionately called "Nanny" and his younger sister Karen (Lisi).

Kevin was educated in the Kansas City Public School System, a student at Southeast High School where he received his high school diploma in 1977. While in high school he participated in the arts and sports programs, ROTC and photography. Kevin comes from a longline of sports fanatics. He learned to love sports at an early age, especially baseball. He was awarded many trophies through his participation in baseball tournaments over the years. Through the good and bad, he remained a diehard Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals fan. Following high school, he studied to become a paramedic. His work career included Valentine Radford Advertising, Signature Loan and Truman Medical Center. Later in life, he fell in love with remodeling homes, a passion he shared with his best friend Dana, his brother in spirit.

Kevin was a devoted and loving father to his one and only son Jason. He was blessed with his pride and joy on November 29, 1986. He had an extraordinary love for his grandchildren, Elias and Cora.

Kevin was a 13 year survivor. After he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, he expressed his continued love of sports through coaching baseball, football and mentoring young men. Coaching “his boys” helped him get through dialysis, chemotherapy, and the pain he endured daily.

Kevin’s infectious smile, his ability to make you feel like you were the most important person in the room and his encouraging words that would remind you that you could do anything your heart desired will be remembered by ALL. He gave his life to Christ at a early age. He attended Pleasant Green Missionary Baptist Church and sang in the Maranatha Choir.

Kevin peacefully departed this life on July 24, 2022, and joined his grandmother, Laura M. Fambro and his father, Charles Sanders. He is survived by his only son Jason; mother, Carol; sister, Karen (Lisi); brother, Hassan; grandson, Elias; granddaughter, Cora and a host of relatives and friends, including his brother in spirit Dana. Kevin was loved by many, and his presence will truly be missed.

We all know that my cousin Kevin was quite a talker and always there to encourage. More importantly, he was a very devoted son, brother, grandson, cousin, father, and true friend to so many , in so many ways. With grace and dignity, Kevin fought long and hard against the multiple ailments that ravaged his earthly body. Though in daily constant pain, he never stopped reaching out to do and care for others. Kevin was the personification of what this world is in desperate need of………LOVE Farewell Our Dear Cousin, Angel, Bud , Gat , Mark, Gordon, Brice & the Herndon Family

Cousin Robbie Herndon

Kevin was not only my cousin, but also like my brother. I spent many summers at his house while growing up. We taught each other how to play chess when we were only ten years old. It will take a while for me to grasp that he is no longer with us in the flesh, but he will always be with us in our fond memories.

Kevin My dear friend and brother. I can't explain to you how much you will be missed. Your departure leaves a hole in my heart. In life you come across many people that befriend you. Not only did you befriend me, you became my family in the Midwest. A friend and brother that I knew I could always count on. I can't remember how many 6:00 a.m. calls I made to your house from the East Coast and then Nanny would always answer the phone to say no problem I'll get him up. That's love! To the family, I am so glad that he's resting in peace at this time. No I wasn't ready for this but I'm glad that he's up in heaven with his big smile lighting up the Earth. We took many road trips together along with my now nephew Jason. So today as everybody gathers to say goodbye from an Earthly standpoint, I share my fond memories and love with you. Jason with the infectious smile of his father, Brother J what you say, Brother J what you say? I'm here, To the east my brother to the east! To the east my brother to the east! Love Eric & family

Coach Kevin Sanders. You will be missed by many young men and kids in the Western Shawnee, KS area. A place that seemed to be your second home over the years as you Coached these Jr Jags to become the Current 3 Peat State Football Champion Mill Valley Jaguars they are today. Not only did you teach these boys how to prepare to be Champions on the field but Champions in the class room and in life. You will be missed my friend but not forgotten. RIP Coach Sanders...!!!!!!!!
