 SOUTHLAKE -- Paul Gilbert Sanders Sr., 52, died at home after suffering from a brief illness of esophageal cancer Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

Mr. Sanders was born May 26, 1961, in Memphis, Tenn., to Paul Harris Sanders and Myriam Gilbert Sanders. Paul attended elementary and middle schools in Arkansas and Memphis. He graduated from White Station High School in Memphis in 1979. He then attended the University of Memphis, where he studied business and was a member of Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity. He worked for Snap-On Tools after college. He then decided to go into the family business as manager of Ferguson's Cafe Restaurants.

In 1994, Paul was offered a job with Hospitality Franchise Systems in Dallas. Paul, his wife, Mary, and their two sons relocated to the Dallas area. They settled in Southlake in 1996 where the family resides today. Here they added four daughters to make their family of eight complete. In 2005, Paul became employed with Jackson Hewitt Tax Services. He served as vice president of franchise sales and development until his death.

Paul's faith rested in the death, burial and resurrection of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He and his family attended church at Countryside Bible Church. He enjoyed all sports, especially golf. He also liked attending his children's sporting events. He worked tirelessly at his job and was well respected by his peers. Above all, his greatest contribution was his devotion and love to his wife, children and family.

Mr. Sanders is survived by his parents, Paul and Myriam Sanders; his wife of 25 years, Mary Warwick Sanders; children, Paul Gilbert Sanders Jr., 28, Tyler Warwick Sanders, 22, Julia Ellen, 15, Mary Elizabeth, 11, Lauren Paige, 8, and Rachel Katherone, 6.
