February 25, 1938 - April 05, 2020
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. II Corinthians 5:1
Our Wonderful and loving father, husband, grandfather, brother-in-law, and friend, Fletcher Anderson passed away Sunday, April 5, 2020 in New Orleans, LA, at the age of 82. He was the cherished patriarch of our family, guiding us, protecting us, teaching us, loving us, and supporting us. He was always there for all of us. He was our role model, our hero. The pride and love he had for his family were immeasurable. He was a man of his word and was exceedingly responsible, honest, and reliable. He was a devoted friend to many. He will be sorely missed and remembered forever.
Fletcher was born February 25, 1938 to Venice Mildred Anderson Miller and the proud step-son of Victor Miller of Bogalusa, LA. He was the only child. Fletcher met and married his grade school “sweetheart” the late Cynthia Baker Anderson. From their union, three children were born; Sonai Anderson Smith, Gamble Anderson Rudd, and Patrick Anderson.
He leaves to mourn grandchildren, Jered Rudd, Fletcher Rudd, and Cynthia Smith the light of his heart; a devoted brother- in- law, Phillip Baker.
We celebrate all of the love he gave to his family, friends, and community. His legacy of a life well-lived with faith and love. “We love him, because he first loved us” 1 John 4:19
First and most important, he was devout Christian who loved God and family very dearly and treasured the wonderful fellowship of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Bogalusa, LA, until his departure from this earth.
Due to the unique times in which we live, the celebration of Fletcher’s life will be held at a later date.
Deacon Anderson’s primary focus was showering his friends and family with love and compassion, if you would like to honor Deacon Anderson’s memory please find an opportunity to carry out an act of kindness during these difficult times.
