Andy was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1937, son of the late Maurice Anderson and Alice Brizle Anderson.

He worked many years prior to his retirement hauling auto parts to the manufacturing plants. In his off time he enjoyed hot-air ballooning and radio controlled airplanes. He loved the outdoors and raising different breeds of animals, but his time with family and friends was most precious to him. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Alan Anderson and a sister, Rose Haggerty.
He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Anna Chisholm Anderson of the home and one sister, Helen Livingston of Hudson, Florida and a host of family and friends.
