Jesse Arthur "Jim" Sanderford was born February 4, 1948 in Raleigh, North Carolina to Mildred and Russell Sanderford. He passed away February 27, 2012 at Cordell, Oklahoma at the age of 64 years and 23 days.
As a boy Jim and his mother lived with his older sister's family who was in the military and they traveled the world together. When he was 17, Jim enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served his country during the Vietnam War. He was discharged at San Diego, California and began hitch hiking back to Raleigh. Along the way he stopped in Weatherford, Oklahoma to work and earn some money. On a weekend trip to Cheyenne with a friend, Jim met Vickie Moler and they were married on August 7, 1969 at Wheeler, Texas. They lived in North Carolina for a short time before returning to Cheyenn to make their home. He worked various jobs before becoming the Cheyenne City Manager and held that position for 15 years. He later began his own business raising and racing greyhounds. Jim loved roping with his sons and shooting pool but his greatest enjoyment was spending time with his grandkids.
He was preceded in death by his parents, 1 son, Gary Wayne Sanderford, and 2 sisters, LaRue Besosa and Frances Patton.
