Mason was born in Brandon, FL in 1998. He graduated from Durant High School in 2016. He completed his Welding Certification at Hillsborough Community college and went on to work as a welder.
Mason was a stand-up comedian without the stage and the large audience. He was intensely funny and most often inappropriately hilarious. He lived by his own rules. Always! He was a connoisseur of root beer and cheeseburgers with the occasional shrimp or chicken strip. Mason was caring and compassionate. He would do anything for his friends, but at the same time loved messing with them. He loved long drives, the outdoors, spending time with friends and his truck, especially his truck! He was generous to a fault, gentle at heart, and yet he sugar coated absolutely nothing. To quote Winston Churchill: “He was a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma”.
Mason is survived by his parents, Drew and Loree Sanders; his sister, Brenyn Sanders; his grandmothers, Sandy Sanders and Carol Harterink; his uncle and aunt, Chris Sanders and Charissa Jaeger-Sanders; his uncle and aunt, Shane and Nicole Harterink; his cousins, Kathryn and Jamison.
Mason was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Tony Harterink and Sonny Sanders.

Mason loved the Christmas cookie and made sure he got his fair and above fair share of them
When he was I n kindergarten he placed a ketchup packet under the knob of the toilet seat. When I sat down on the seat the packet exploded and red ketchup went flying. My brain could not comprehend why blood had shot out everywhere. I was panicked! I lifted up the seat and saw the ketchup packet. I was so mad at the mess he made but couldn’t stop laughing as I realized what he had done. -Mom
Just a great kid… quirky and funny
