Richard William Anderson

December 8, 1962 - January 15, 2021

Richard William Anderson, 58, of Hendersonville passed away on Friday, January 15, 2021 at his home.  He was born in Broward County, FL to Richard Anderson, Sr. and Margaret (Marty) Webb.

Rick worked at Carolina Specialties Construction for over 25 years. He was a loving husband, father, son and friend.  He was a man that would give you the shirt off his back and someone who never met a stranger!  Rick was an outdoorsman, Grill Master, and a Twisted Tea Connoisseur.  He was a protector, provider and all around outstanding man.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 30 years, Tonya Anderson; daughters, Nikki Drake and Hayley Anderson; son, Eric Taylor; grandchildren, Zane, Zoey, Peyton and Zada; three siblings; and his loving dogs, Gunner and Gizmo.  We will miss his big smile and warm heart.  He will be remembered for being an amazing husband and even better dad.

Memorial contributions may be made in Richard’s honor to the Pardee Cancer Center.  A private family service will be held, and a larger Celebration of Life will be planned for a later date.
