Mr. Anderson met and married Mozelle Kirkpatrick, the love of his

life. Together, they raised three beautiful daughters who were his

pride and joy. Above all, Mr. Anderson loved God. He was a long-time

of love and his sound wisdom and advice.

Michele Nichols, Tonya Miller, and Wayne Davis; eight great-

grandchildren, Dustin, Dylan, Nathon, Zachery, Charlee, Peyton,

Anderson, and Brandon; son-in-law, Richard Miller; and sister, Vennie

Mae Roark. Many cousins, nephews, nieces, other relatives,

brothers/sisters in Christ, and friends also survive.

Services for Mr. Anderson are scheduled for 2:00 pm, Friday afternoon,

November 30, 2012 at the Trinity Tabernacle Assembly of God on Hwy 19

North in Trinity with the Rev. Rodger D. Goins officiating. Mr.

Anderson’s body will, then, be taken by procession to the Dodge
