Life Reflections

Another soldier has made his final journey and entered the eternal gates of heaven. We are here to celebrate the life of Dwayne Sanders.

Dwayne was born on November 17, 1962 to Josephine Ferris-Chavon and Jerry Sanders. His mother Josephine Ferris- Chavon, preceded him in death.

Dwayne was raised in Chicago, Illinois. He attended and graduated from Chicago Vocational High School. Dwayne began his new life joining in Holy Matrimony with the former Jacquelyn Jones on September 11, 1994.

Dwayne faithfully served his country in the branch of the Marine Corps from September 1982 - August 1986

Dwayne was a highly competent machinist for the past 8 years. He was previously employed at Road One, O’Hare Towing and Laid Law Bus Company.

Dwayne enjoyed life to the fullest. He was always willing to help assist you when needed. He brought laughter to all those he encountered. He never met a stranger. If you knew Dwayne well what does “Jangle Lang” meant?

Dwayne departed this life on Saturday, September 12, 2020. His sister, Linda Sanders and brothers, Ronald and Floyd Sanders preceded him in death.
