American entrepreneur who founded the Kentucky Fried Chicken fast-food franchise. It all started in rural Kentucky in a small, rural gas station and restaurant he owned in 1929 where he began to serve his fried chicken. By the time he sold his franchise in 1963, he had built an empire worth $2 million.

An honorary colonel, he came from humble beginnings, only going through the sixth grade in school. His daughter, Margaret, published a book about her father entitled "The Colonel's Secret: Eleven Herbs and a Spicy Daughter." In it she wrote of her father's need for sex every day and when his wife, Josephine could not keep up, a housekeeper, Claudia Price, was hired to take care of him and the house. Eventually, they divorced and he married Claudia.

Sanders died from leukemia on 12/16/1980, Shelbyville, KY.
