William "Bill" Bagley Sanders

1937 - 2021



William "Bill” Bagley Sanders, 83, of Macon, passed away on Thursday, May 20, 2021. Services will be private.  

Bill was born 12/06/1937 in Booneville, Tennessee. He then moved to Macon at the age of 6, where he later attended Lanier High School. Soon after, he enlisted in the United States Navy. A University of Georgia graduate, he dedicated himself to a successful career as a Certified Public Accountant. Operating as a sole proprietor, he worked out of the same office on Walnut Street for 45 years. He retired in 2020 after suffering a traumatic fall in the home that he shared with his loving wife Kathryn. 

Mr. Sanders was a longtime member of the AICPA and the Georgia Society of CPAs. He was a past member of the Macon Civitan Club, the Macon Elks Club and served on several boards including the American Red Cross, the Macon Touchdown Club, the Middle Georgia Bulldog Club and the Macon Tennis Association. At the request of the Macon Telegraph’s sports editor and columnist Harley Bowers, he provided the accounting services for the creation of the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. 

Bill loved the outdoors and enjoyed working in his yard, playing golf and tennis, fishing and canoeing. He was an avid Georgia football fan and a season ticket holder for over 25 years. He also had a creative streak that was apparent in his passion for woodworking. 

He is predeceased by his mother Lougene Sanders, stepfather Irving Sanders, father Floyd Harrison, brother Bobby Gene Sanders and nephew William Sanders. 

He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Kathryn “Kay” Sanders; son, Walter (Dotti) Sanders; daughter by previous marriage, Terri (Ricky) Hulett; sister, Nina Hoffpauir; sister-in-law, JoAnn Sanders; nephews, Jay (Deanna) Sanders, Philip (Donna) Sanders, Robert (Katie) Sanders; brother-in-law David (Maggie) Borowski; nephew, Paul Borowski; niece, Ann (Christian) Slade, and his beloved furry companion, Simon.
