Sanderson Patrick Poe

NORMAN — Sanderson Patrick Poe, 42, had great passion for the loves of his life, his wife, Kelsey Lyn Poe, and his music. Together, Sanderson and Kelsey set their course as one, and as one they were.

Kelsey’s goal and Sanderson’s supportive commitment were achieved May 18, 2013, with Kelsey’s graduation with her master’s degree from the University of Texas in Austin.

Sanderson was a student in Tulsa and Norman before moving to London, where he graduated from the American Community School. Sanderson completed studies in jazz music at the New School for Social Research in New York City and the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, Belgium. Sanderson played the upright double bass and had a very successful music career in Europe before returning to the United States, where he met and married Kelsey in 2009.

Sanderson lived his life as a loving partner to Kelsey and to be true to his own free spirit. Sanderson’s music is still being performed in Europe today.

A few of Sanderson’s unusual accomplishments include working on a fishing boat in Iceland, exercising horses in Hyde Park in London and being an outstanding rugby player in England.

Sanderson was preceded in death by his stepmother, Sharon Lee Poe and his birth mother, Stephanie Parris Thompson.

He is survived by his wife, Kelsey; his grandmother, Pearl Sullens; his father, Patrick Poe; brothers William Poe, Preston Poe and Mark Baldwin; sister, Debbie Meador; and uncles Robert Poe and George Purdum.

Services will be 10 a.m. Friday at the Resurrection Memorial Cemetery Chapel, 7500 Britton Road in Oklahoma City.
