It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Domanic Lee Sanders, 20 of Phelps, KY.  He was born June 6th, 2003, at Pikeville, KY and was the son of Josh and Nicki “Hurley” Sanders of Phelps, KY. 

Domanic was preceded by his paternal great-grandfather, Henry Justice and maternal great-grandparents, Roger “Catman” and Shirley Blankenship.

Domanic was a shining star that illuminated our lives with his vibrant personality and immense love.  His curious nature and eagerness to learn constantly fueled his desire to explore the world around him.  Whether he was operating equipment or riding ATVs with his friends, or diving into new hobbies.  Domanic was a joy to be around.  He loved picking on his mom.  He was blessed with great friends, and love and loyalty were top priority.

Domanic’s empathetic nature set him apart, as he would effortlessly spread kindness and compassion wherever he went.  He was a 2021 graduate of Phelps High School.  He attended Big Sandy Community and Technical College in Pikeville, Kentucky, where he obtained his associate degree in industrial maintenance.  He was a loyal friend who kept loyal friends; he will be sadly missed by everyone who loved him.
