Born July 10, 1926, in Memphis, TN, he was the son of the late Thomas Edwin and Minnie Sanderlin.
He was a member of Mt. Zion Church of Christ and was a veteran of the U.S. Navy.
Dr. Sanderlin tirelessly and joyfully served Corbin and the surrounding area for many years. His passion for the art and science of medicine was powered by his faith in God and his love for people.
