He is survived by his brother, Richard Sanborn of Gilford; daughters Pamela Sanborn of Revere Beach, Massachusetts and Jayne Donnelly of Manchester; granddaughters Aimee (Naseman) Sanborn of Peabody, Massachusetts and Joelle (Donnelly) Wiggin of Bedford.
He was predeceased by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Everett J Sanborn Sr. of Gilford; his sister, Barbara Swain of Gilford; his wife Marion (Miner), and his son-in-law Michael Donnelly.
He will be sadly missed by his family. Always a wonderful dancer, his daughters and granddaughters will hold dearly the recent memory of him dancing at Joelle’s wedding in September.
