Clifford Robert Sanders, 55, of Caney, Kansas, was a volunteer firefighter. He was born May 11, 1959, in Independence, Kansas, to Clifford Harlan and Shirley Jean Sanders. He was raised and received his education in Caney public schools.
He was married to Debra Lloyd on April 21, 1994, at Coffeyville, Kansas. They made their home in Caney all their married life. He was active in the community and with the Caney Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter for over 24 years. He loved serving his community as a firefighter and was also dedicated to his family.
Clifford is survived by his wife, Debra Ann (Lloyd) Sanders of the home in Caney; his daughter, Bonda Frank, and fiancé, Ronald Doheny; his son, Brock Tyler Sanders; sister, Tamayla Artherton, and husband, Mark; his mother, Shirley Sanders; his two grandchildren, Brycen Frank and Joshlynn Frank; his father-in-law, Gary Lloyd; and his mother-in-law, Floretta Lloyd.
He enjoyed watching all major sports and being with grandkids, taking them up to the fire station and showing them how to run the trucks and other things. Teaching his grandson how to operate stuff on the firetrucks was exciting for him. Now his grandson will know what to do and how things work when he is able to get on the Caney Fire Department.
