He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Ed Sanders. He is survived by his wife of 63 years Pat Sanders; daughter Jeanie Larremore and husband Gary; son Mike Sanders and wife Janet; sisters Clara Juricek, Mary Barnett and husband Prentice; sister-in-law Camilla Sanders; brother and sister-in-law Don and Nancy Godwin; brother-in-law Jack Churchill and wife Louraine; grandchildren Will Larremore and wife Justine, Bart Larremore, Lesa Scott and husband Warren, Natalie Sanders, Geoffrey Sanders, Audrey Wohlrab and husband Jay; four great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Vaughn graduated from Taylor High School and married Patricia Fay Godwin on Sept. 2, 1949 in Austin. They became proud parents of two children, Jeanie and Mike. Vaughn spent most of his life in the floor and window covering business, but his greatest work and love was raising and enjoying his family. He also enjoyed ranching with all classes of livestock and raising horses. He was an avid hunter and also liked to fish.
Vaughn was a member of the Cherokee Baptist Church and also served willingly in the communities where he lived on the school board, chamber of commerce and other organizations. He was very active in the Masonic Lodge and had been a Master Mason for 38 years, serving as Master of the Lodge in both San Gabriel Lodge No. 89, and in Llano Lodge No. 242, where he also served as District Deputy Grand Master of that district.
Vaughn (or Big Daddy to the grandchildren) will be greatly missed by his family and friends, but he leaves us with a wonderful legacy and many good memories.
Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, March 6 at 11 a.m. in the I.O.O.F Cemetery in Georgetown, Texas with Craig Churchill officiating.
Pallbearers will be Mike Sanders, Gary Larremore, Will Larremore, Bart Larremore, Geoffrey Sanders and Shawn Sanders. Serving as Honorary Pallbearers will be Bill Jenkins, Rowe Caldwell, Bill Edmiston, and Sam Center.
