Johnny Sanderson

Mr. John Michael "Johnny" Sanderson, age 62, made his final drive and arrived in Heaven Wednesday evening, May 29, 2019, at his home surrounded by his family.

He was a life-long resident of the Amackertown community in Poplarville.

Johnny was preceded by his parents, John E. and Mary E. (Cooper) Sanderson.

Left to cherish his memories are: his best friend and loving wife of 31 years, Sandra; his three children: Joshua (Erica) Sanderson, Cissie (Ray) Rivero, and Joe (Lillion) Dunn; his brother Jeff (Tisha) Sanderson and sister Jeannie (Tommy) Mitchell; five grandchildren: Adalyn, Faith, Meadow, DJ, and Savanah, along with numerous friends and neighbors.

Johnny drove 18 wheelers across country for 45 years, retiring at age 60. He loved socializing with others, never met a stranger and always had a friendly smile to offer.

He enjoyed attending services at Bethel Baptist Church, spending time with his family, listening to Charles Stanley, and watching Gunsmoke.

He will be fondly remembered, and sadly missed by his grateful admirers, his family and all who knew him.

Funeral services were held at 2:00 Monday afternoon at Bethel Baptist Church, and Johnny was laid to rest in the Baughman Cemetery with Bro. Billy Kent Smith officiating.

Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Sanderson family, and asks everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers in this time. Share memories and sign the online registry, provided at
