We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Louisville Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home East
Jeff Saunders, 60, of Louisville, KY passed away unexpectedly on July 3, 2022.
Jeff was known for his quick wit, his sense of humor, love for a good time at the races and throwing the best darn Thunder over Louisville party in town. He was a master on the grill and a jack of all trades. He took joy in creating long lasting fun memories for his friends and family. He always said life came guaranteed with a born date and expiration date but it was the dash in between that was the most important. He most certainly made good use of the dash! He was the Chief Engineer for 21c Hotel and was well respected by his coworkers for his extensive maintenance knowledge and the leadership he provided.
Jeff was preceded in death by his mother Shirley Saunders and step-son Trey Kramer. He leaves behind to carry on his legacy his wife Mimi Saunders, children Andrea Saunders and Cory Saunders, stepson Trevor Drury (Kaitlyn) grandchildren Caleb and Madison, his father Charles Saunders, brothers Russell, John (Allison), and Doug Saunders, his best friend of many years Dean Combs, and his four legged partner in crime Leo, along with many other friends and family members.
A Funeral Service to celebrate Jeff's life will be held at 11AM on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at Louisville Memorial Gardens Funeral Home East, 11601 Ballardsville Road. Friends may call on the family from 4PM - 7PM on Friday, July 8, 2022 or from 9AM until service time on Saturday at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Heart Association.
