Robert "Bob" James Sandel, 77, of Tellico Village, passed away Aug. 20, 2019.

Bob was an amazing husband, father, grandfather and father-in-law. He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a retired engineer at Ford Motor Company. Bob and Mary were married 56 years. He and Mary raised three successful children who in turn raised seven wonderful grandchildren. Bob excelled in all aspects of life. Sadly, he left us unexpectedly.

He is survived by his wife, Mary; children, Karen (Nick), Dave (Connie) and Gary (Jonelle); grandchildren, Ryan, Kara, Krysta, Drew, Kayla, Sofia and Josie; and many dear friends and relatives.

He always gave us something to laugh and smile about. He will be missed very deeply by all.

A celebration of life service will be held at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Kiwanis Club of Tellico Village or to St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church.
