SANDERS, Edward Louis

SEIBOLD, Shirley Mae

SANDERS, Edward Louis, November 10, 1946 – July 28, 2012, resident of Castro Valley. On July 28, 2012, after fearlessly facing extended cancer treatments, Ed entered into peaceful rest. Through it all, Ed never lost his sense of humor or quick wit. Ed was the first of four children born to Arline and Louie (deceased 1994) in Akron, Ohio. Having joined the Navy at age 17, he was a Vietnam veteran. At the end of his tour of duty, Ed was stationed at Treasure Island and remained in his adopted state of California after being discharged, where he managed Leon’s Office Equipment in Castro Valley for 38 years. While he was most proud of his role as “PaPa” to his beloved granddaughter, Cora, Ed also enjoyed hunting and fishing, walking for miles with his canine companions (Cali and Stella), working in his yard and visiting with family and friends. Over the years, Ed was also active in the community and freely contributed his time to the Castro Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Castro Valley Rotary Club, particularly with the Fall Festival and Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade. Ed is survived by his mother, Arline; wife, Susan; sons, Christopher (Cynthia) Sanders and Wesley (Aleta) Yourth; granddaughter, Cora Jeanne Yourth; sisters, Jan (Bobby) White, Lynn (Denny) Hanna; and brother, Jimmy (Trish) Sanders. Ed is also survived by his “bonus” family, Lorri, Leon, Ross, Diane, Bridget and Seth Eddings; his dear friend, Irma Haston; and an abundance of in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors. Ed will be best remembered for his quick wit, sense of humor, ethical core, and compassion and unconditional love for his family and wide circle of friends. Ed’s family wishes to thank Dr. George Fisher, his assistant, Ann Johnson and Dr. Brendan Visser of Stanford Cancer Center, for their excellent compassionate care of Ed. While a cure was not to be, Ed believed that, without their care, he would never have had the quality time he spent with Cora. In addition, the family wishes to thank Hope Hospice for keeping Ed extremely comfortable during his final journey. The family invites you to attend a mass celebrating Ed’s life at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 17, at Corpus Christi Church located at 37891 Second St. in the Niles District of Fremont. The family requests no flowers and hopes that those wishing to make a contribution in Ed’s name will do so by making a donation to their favorite charity.
