Born in Wheeler, TX, and grew up in Pampa, TX. He also resided in Reno, NV and finally made his way to Florence, KY where he resided long term. Dwayne was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed golfing, fishing, camping, and gardening. A true sports fanatic, he rooted for the Dallas Cowboys and of course our Cincinnati Reds. He loved talking politics and general funny business on Facebook. Dwayne had a proud dark sense of humor and wit. To all who knew Dwayne knew he loved to "kick back". He went out with a bang and passed away during a thunderstorm. 

In addition to his parents Delton Sanders and Ima Jean Gore nee Bailey, he was preceded in death by his two brothers, Kenneth Sanders and Delton Sanders.
