Robert Alden Sandborn, 77, of Ionia formerly of Sunfield, passed away at SKLD Medical Facility, on February 9, 2024, after a short battle with cancer.

His greatest passion was watching old movies and was able to name almost all the movie stars. Bob also enjoyed McDonalds chocolate shakes as a treat from family members.

He is survived by his brothers William (Arlene) Sandborn of Lake Odessa and Edwin (Evelyn) Sandborn of Sunfield, several nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, niece, Kassandra Sandborn and grandparents.
