The bestest Dad in the whole world. I was blessed when Mom and Dad adopted me into their family. Love him and miss him. Cindy Lowney, April 10, 2021 I have had the utmost privilege of knowing Mr. Don Anderson for almost 50 years. When people joke about a person saying The Man, The Myth, The Legend, it is not a joke about Don. He truly is the Man, The Myth, The Legend. He was and will always be my mentor, instructor, teacher, supervisor, and most importantly, my friend. It goes without saying he will be sorely missed in person. He will, however, remain in my heart, my soul, my mind until we meet again. My love to the family, friends, and to Don himself. Rick Snyder and Kathleen Johnson, April 9, 2021 Don aka Pepa was one of the kindest most loving men I have ever met. I always called him my boyfriend because I loved him so much. He will be greatly missed by all. Rest In Peace my love. Cheryl Craighead, March 28, 2021
