J. Linden "Lin" Sanders

January 6, 1943 — April 1, 2022

J. Linden "Lin" Sanders, of Mechanicsburg PA, died peacefully on Friday, April 1, 2022. He is survived by his wife Janet, children Deborah and Pete (Becky), three grandsons, and first wife Pamela Murray.

Lin was a proud graduate of Lehigh University (B.S. Electrical Engineering) and the University of Delaware (M.B.A). He spent his career working for The DuPont Company. An expert in his field, he had been quoted in numerous professional publications, including the Wall Street Journal.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Lin happily devoted many hours to various charitable organizations. He particularly enjoyed working with Habitat for Humanity and traveled to many hurricane-stricken areas to help rebuild. Lin also worked with the Tri-County Association For The Blind. He was a member of St. James Presbyterian Church in Mechanicsburg PA and participated in mission work with them as well.

Lin's interests included golf, tennis, dancing, and he was an avid sci-fi fan. His happiest memories came from spending time with his family on roller coasters, playing board games, and telling stories.

A private memorial service to honor Lin will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a charitable contribution to Habitat for Humanity (Harrisburg), the St. James Presbyterian Church (Mechanicsburg), or the Bethesda Mission (Harrisburg).
