Bob Sanders, Owner of Image House Photography joined the Angels Choir Christmas Eve at EAMC after a sudden illness. He was beloved and well known throughout the Auburn Community which he loved and served for over 30 years. He was a man of many talents and will be remembered for his love for his family and friends, his fur babies, easy and outgoing personality, wit and wonderful sense of humor, singing and harmonica playing, not to mention being an avid gun collector and history buff.  He never met a stranger. He was so creative and talented and captured through his photographs so many special moments that will forever be a reminder to his customers that he cared and they were “Home” at Image House.

He was awarded “Photographer of the Year in Montgomery, Al. and received various awards for his photography, served as Constable for Auburn, was an Officer and Past Exalted Ruler of the Elk’s Lodge, a  member of various associations and sang and played the harp with many bands throughout his lifetime.

He left so many wonderful memories to treasure for his “Bride’ Sandra of 42 years, daughter Jessica (Ron) Keel, son Alex (Anna) Sanders, brother Bill (Lauren) Sanders, brother Jack (Nancy) Sanders, sister Karen (Pete) Clear, grandchildren Trevor, Madison and Braxton, sisters in law, brothers in law, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and many beloved friends and special customers. His song will forever remain in the hearts of those he loved and all who were fortunate enough to cross his path. War Eagle Bob, we love and miss you but will see you again. Loved you then, love you still, always will……

The family respectfully requests in lieu of flowers that a donation be made in his name to the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation for the outstanding care, compassion and concern of the doctors and nurses that cared for him especially in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.
