William Lee Sanger “Will”, 20, a resident of Lee County, Florida, passed away Monday, November 5, 2018, in North Fort Myers, Florida.

He is survived by his loving mother and father, Rae and Matthew Sewell of Chesapeake, VA; three loving siblings, Nicholas Sanger of North Ft. Myers, FL, Bailee Sanger of Chesapeake, VA and Meagan Sewell of Hubert, NC; loving Grandparents, Thomas Hastings “POPS” and Sue Hastings “Granny” of Seymour, IN; Zalia Pike “Grandma Za” and the late Peter Pike “Grandpa Pete” of Cape Coral FL. He also leaves behind many loving Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Friends.

He was a devoted son, brother and friend, who brought a smile to the face of everyone he encountered. His zest for life was infectious to those around him. His smile and laugh could light up even the darkest of rooms. His love of anything with a motor, was evident through his Bronco, his Harley and the multitude of go-carts and riding lawnmowers he built.

He lived to be on the move, while never missing a chance to share his experiences with those that he loved. He loved to be outdoors, whether it was fishing or off-roading with his buddies. Will lived without limits. One can never forget his love of burnouts!!!

He lived for challenge, whether it was on the pitcher’s mound or in the garage. He was gifted with the ability to pick up any skill he put his mind too. He loved his work as an HVAC technician, which was just one more example of his ability to quickly achieve a goal. He could put wrench to bolt and learn on the go. He single-handedly built his Bronco to run, look and sound the way he wanted, taking it from pavement princess to off-road beast.

On the baseball diamond Will was at home, on the mound or in the batter’s box. His skill was displayed by his ability to play any position. He always played at a 100 percent, because anything less was unacceptable in his eyes. He played to win and loved to share the diamond with his teammates. He was a die-hard Yankees fan. His love of competition did not end on the baseball diamond he took it into everything he did. The golf course, fishing, riding…everything was competition. He loved the game whatever it was.

He was most at peace on the water with fishing pole in hand. He would fish from dusk til dawn without a care in the world. He loved the open-waters of the ocean or just a small pond, anywhere he could catch a fish was the right place to be.

Always one for a laugh, his pranks and jokes never stopped. Bailee’s forehead was always of special interest to him and led to a lifetime of jokes. He would measure and bite it. His love surrounds her and the laughter of the forehead jokes will remain in her heart forever. He always loved to prank her and even duct taped her to her bed. He and his brother shared a few practical joke battles as well, Will once poured syrup on Nick in the shower and into his cast, but at the end of the day a brother’s love will always be a brother’s love. The sibling rivalries always ended with a heart-felt I love you!!!

His love of his family was most important to him. He never missed an opportunity to tell his Mamma I love you or send an I love you to his brother and sister. The bond between these siblings is unwavering and the love never stops. None ever part company with the other without an I love you. He was so protective and would never let anything happen to his siblings. A father could not be more proud of the man a son had grown into.

His love extended to his friends as well. He never had a shortage close friends that were as important to him as family. He has always surrounded himself with loyal and loving friends and he was equally as such to them. He will always be a guardian angel to those he loved.

The babies are mamma’s world. A special place in a mamma’s heart is always reserved for her babies. Will’s place there will always be filled with love and happiness, because mamma will keep him there forever. Just as his heart was full for her, hers will forever be full for him. Just as Will never misses an I love you, nor does mamma. A mother’s love is a mother’s love.

Driven by purpose and desire to succeed, Will never let an obstacle stand in his way or a road block slow him down. His mamma noticed at an early age that she would have to let him live his life how he chose, he always knew what was best for him. You were definitely Born Free and lived without limits. He will forever be a guardian angel to his Family and friends. Ride on Will…smoke the tires!!!

A Celebration Of Life will be held at 2:00 PM on Sunday November 11, 2018 at Orioles, 13290 N. Cleveland Ave. North Fort Myers, Florida 33903, immediately followed by a balloon release at Koza Field.

The family is planning a celebration of life in Virginia as well.
