Roy J. Anderson, age 80, of Somerset passed from this life on Saturday June 5, 2021 at his residence surrounded by family and special friends.  He was born November 1, 1940 in Faubush, Kentucky to the late Ray and Octavia Anderson. 

 

Roy accepted Christ over 50 years ago.  He loved farming and growing gardens so he could give away to family and friends.  He always enjoyed coon hunting, his dogs, and fishing.  His passion for John Deere tractors was well known.  Roy was very proud of his tractors, and one could not come visit without seeing each of them.  His love of John Deere tractors was only surpassed by his love of spending time with his grandkids.   

 

He was preceded in death by his parents, special niece Judy Faulkner, sister Rita Anderson and brother Thurman Anderson.  

 

Roy leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife of 60 years, Doris Anderson; son John (Leisa) Anderson, daughter Kathy (Brian) McKee, grandchildren Kyle (Caitlin Quinn) Anderson, Nick Anderson, Allie Dodson (Austin Bailey) and Jaxon McKee.  He is also survived by brother RA Anderson and sisters Jewell Ard and Pat Randolph, as well as a host of special friends and caregivers whom he considered his grandkids and family.
