Michael Richard Sander, 61, Indianapolis, formerly of Jasper, passed away on Wednesday, August 21, 2019. He was a loving husband and father.

Michael was born on May 18, 1958, in Jasper, to Richard and Neoma Sander.

On April 28, 1990, he married the love of his life, Rebecca Ann (Caito) Sander. They raised two children, Joseph Richard and Alyson Marie.

Mike had many hobbies, interests and passions throughout his life, including reading every book published on Theodore Roosevelt, talking politics and history, playing golf, collecting stamps, books and golf balls, and enjoying a glass of Johnnie Walker Black.
