John F. Sander Memorial Scholarship

John F. Sander met Susan, his wife of 37 years, while attending undergraduate classes at the University of Missouri – St. Louis. Both majored in political science.

John was a devoted family man and took pride in his wonderful marriage, children, and grandchildren. A surprising and unexpected cancer diagnosis led to his untimely death.
