Dr. Charles B. Sanders, a veteran of the Civil War, died suddenly Saturday at his home, 475 Westford street, aged 77 years, 2 months and 11 days. While his health had been failing, his death was unexpected, and the news of his passing came as a shock to a wide circle of friends.
   Dr. Sanders was a member of Ladd & Whitney post 185, G. A. R., also a member of the Pentucket lodge of Masons, Royal Arch Chapter and Ahasuerus Council. He had been especially active in connection with G. A. R. affairs. During the war he served as first lieutenant, and when the G. A. R. was organized he became identified with it and was deeply interested in its development. In the Lowell Memorial day parade of 1915 he was the chief marshall.
   Dr. Sanders leaves his wife, Harriet E. Sanders, and three children, Ralph of Oneida, Wis., Richard B. of Newton Center, Mass., and Mrs., Raymond Whitten of Los Angeles, Cal.
