MALACHI H. SANDERS was born on April 27th, 1958, to the late Thomas Sanders Sr. and Ruth Sanders in Rembert, South Carolina. He attended school in Sumter County and graduated from Hillcrest High School's class of 1976. He was baptized at an early age. Malachi was Employed for 40 plus years at Thermoid, Inc located in Elgin, SC until retiring in 2015. Malachi was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. At an early age, he developed a love for drag racing and working on cars. He shared those memories with his closest friends and family. During his retirement, he enjoyed sitting in his rocking chair with his wife right at his side, playing with his dog cookie, grilling, and being outdoors. Family was his number one priority, and he would always make sure that his family was provided for. Malachi was willing to help anyone. Malachi had an outspoken spirt and a giving heart and for that he will be dearly missed. Our love for him will endure forever and we take comfort in knowing he is in God’s loving arms.
