Obituary of Matthew Sanders

Matthew Theodore Sanders, born October 30.1987 in West Palm Beach, FL passed into God's loving arms on November 29, 2017 in DeLand, Florida.

Matthew had a heart of compassion and a tremendous silly streak.  All who knew him could see his goodness.  Matthew was preceded in death by his beloved Grams and many other family and friends who are now reunited with his beautiful soul.  Matthew's death leaves holes in the hearts of those who love him, especially his adoring parents, Ted & Jan (Allen) Sanders of DeLand, Florida.  He also leaves behind his sister, Jennifer (Sanders) Isenberg and brother in law, Stephen Isenberg of DeLand, Florida, his nieces, Addison and Cate and newly born Benjamin-who will miss growing up with their doting Uncle Matt. 

Matthew's dear family includes Uncle Tommy and Aunt Kay (Allen) Trama of Palm Coast, Florida, Uncle Dale and Aunt Sue Allen of Stuart, Florida, Aunt Rose Sanders of Lake Park, Florida, cousins, Kari Taylor, Dana Lodwick, Heather Keegan, and their families.  Matthew's family includes many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who became family.  Those friends include those he knew through the Elusive Grape in DeLand, Florida where he was employed from 2015-2017 and the staff and brother hood at Miracle Hill Ministries in Greenville,SC, where he spent most of 2017 feeling their kindness, learning his worth and changing his life.  Matthew had a special place in his heart for animals, especailly his cat, Hector.  He would want his memory honored with donations in his name to the South East Volusia Humane Society, 1200 South Glencoe Road, New Smyrna Beach, FL, 32168.  Thank you to all who loved our Mathew.  He is gone too soon, but will always be in our hearts.  Matthew is now at peace.
