Thomas Saunders, 1952-2016

Saunders, Thomas 3/25/1952 - 11/15/2016 Whitmore Lake, Michigan.

Tom was a great fan of books, telling stories, playing and enjoying music and a great corned beef sandwich; as well as all of the people who shared those things with him. Tom's battle against metastatic cancer ended peacefully, Tuesday November 15, in the presence of family. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, November 20 at 1pm at Phillips Funeral Home, 122 W. Lake Street, South Lyon, MI 48178. Visitation for family and friends will take place from 11am-1pm, followed by a memorial service. A wake will be held after, to laugh, cry, tell stories and toast Tom, 3pm-7pm at the Dexter Knights of Columbus, 8265 Dexter-Chelsea Rd, #1, Dexter, MI 48130. In lieu of flowers, please direct any donations to Lost, a group that brings music therapy to at-risk and incarcerated youth, of which Tom was a proud supporter.

Tom was the President of the Ann Arbor, Michigan, "Moderate State of Preservation" Chapter of the RBS and the publisher of The Athletic Benchley.
