Administrative History
Gerald Frank Sanders (1916-2017) was born August 28, 1916 in Hackney, London. He emigrated to Canada in 1918 and the family settled in Burnaby on Spruce Street. As the family grew, they built the house that still stands (as of 2018) on the corner of Spruce and Carlton Avenue at 4096 Spruce Street then eventually the smaller house between the two. He attended Inman Elementary, then VanTech. He eventually joined the RAF during WWII as an airplane mechanic in England. He sent his pay home and his mother bought the two lots on Pine Street with some of the money. Gerald married Alice Viola Sparman (1925-1996) on March 8, 1948. Alice was born in Lloydminster Sasks, grew up near Cranbrook BC and spent her teenage years in Victoria BC. She trained to be a nurse at St.Paul's Hospital in Vancouver graduating in ca. 1945-1946. Alice worked at the Burnaby General Hospital since it was built in 1952. They had six children: Dennis, Kerry, Kris, David, Ruth, and Marie. Gerald built the house at 4058 Pine Street with the help of family and friends in 1949. He worked as a carpenter, working on projects like the dentistry building at UBC, highway overpasses, the Vancouver Court House, Jack Poole's house in the British Properties, etc. "He lived on one square block for 98 years but his life was anything but small".
