Thomas Gene Sanborn, 67, passed away at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska, on Jan. 13, 2017. Thomas was born on June 2, 1949 in Bristol, England, to Glenn and Eileen (Prosser) Sanborn. His parents moved to Anchorage, where he graduated from East High School in 1967. He honorably served his country in the U.S. Army from 1968-1972. He married his one true love, Wanda Grace Sanborn (Harris), on Oct. 17, 1974. Thomas was a jack-of-all-trades working various jobs before gaining employment with the State of Alaska in 1979. He proudly worked 21 years before retiring from the State in 2000. He worked for O'Reilly's from 2012 until his recent passing. His passions included Ford mustangs and watching his favorite driver, Mark Martin, in NASCAR. He was very proud of his '67 candy apple red fastback. Thomas never met a stranger. He was very outgoing and was always joking with friends and strangers to get them to smile and bring a glimmer of kindness to their day.
Thomas was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn and Eileen Sanborn; and his brother, Craig Sanborn. He is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Wanda Sanborn of Anchorage; his son and partner, Troy Sanborn and Kimber Baine, both of Anchorage; his brothers, Barry Sanborn and Rod Sanborn, both of Anchorage; his sister-in-law, Ruby Harris of Anchorage; and many beloved relatives and friends.
A celebration of life will be held in Anchorage at a later date.
You are away yet you stay always in our hearts and memories forever.
