Thirty-three-year-old Kevin Sanders was an emergency medical technician. He and 13 others were killed in last week's blast in West Texas.

Sanders' body will arrive at O'Hare Airport Saturday evening and will receive a full honors escort.

Sanders is survived by a wife and three-month-old son. He attended Marist High School.
