Affectionately known to everyone as Rooster, he was a farmer most of his life. He loved to raise Game Foul. He was known for never meeting a stranger and to know him was to love him. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He loved watching Westerns on TV and John Wayne was his hero as far as actors go. He was a member of the Lighthouse Church in Franklin Parish. He was preceded in death by his parents and by three sisters: Mildred Noble, Marie McNamee, and Evelyn Carter.
Those left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Faye V. Anderson of Winnsboro; his two sons: James Michael Anderson and Jason Anderson, both of Winnsboro; his daughter, Jamie Anderson of Winnsboro; his brothers: John W. Anderson of Benton, LA and Frank Anderson of Wesson, Mississippi; his sister:, Bobbie Sproles of Winnsboro; four grandchildren: Colby Anderson, Hanna Anderson, Grayson Killian, and Mason Richmond; and his great-granddaughter, Adelyn Lindsey.
