On Thursday, November 23, 2023, Derek Anderson the son of Joyce Anderson and the late Shedrack Anderson peacefully departed this life at Centra Southside Hospital after a brief illness. He was born on August 25, 1967 in Charlottesville, Va. Derek attended Buckingham County High School (Class of 1985).
Derek "Tony" who he was affectionally called by his friends and family joined the Baptist Union Baptist Church at an early age and continued to be a faithful member until his health began to fail.
Derek was employed by several companies during his lifetime of employment, including: Kyanite Mining, Liberty Fabrics, Shoe Factory, Thomasville, Buckingham County Public School System, and most recently Central Virginia Community Health Services.
Growing up Tony's love was playing baseball, as he got older his love became hanging out with family and friends, dancing and listening to music. One of his all-time favorite sayings was "I LOVE MY FAMILY".
He leaves to cherish his precious memories: mother, Joyce Anderson, sister, Carletta Smith (Darrell), one nephew, Daven Anderson. A host of Aunts and Uncles, (two devoted) Adelle Johnson and Hampton Gregory, one great-aunt, Julia Anderson, cousins that loved him dearly, other relatives and friends. A special friend Audrey Payne and Z'Ariel Payne whom he thought of as a granddaughter.
Derek was deeply loved and will be missed by all who knew him.
