Mr. Anderson was our algebra, trig and chemistry teacher at Chesterfield in 1964 - 65. He was not only a great teacher, but showed his students the way to work and at the same time have fun. His Christian testimony is one that touched many.

I will always remember him from my HS days at Evergreen. I loved his smile and wit and will appreciate what he taught us forevermore.

Mr. Anderson was my chemistry teacher at evergreen in 1977. I loved his dry sense of humor and enjoyed coming to his class. Although chemistry was not my favorite subject he made the class interesting and fun. Not only was he a great teacher he also was very kind and provided insight to me when going through a difficult situation. Prayers to the family of a wonderful man.

Richard was 15 years my elder, but I remember him as a humble and faithful follower of Jesus. He served as Sunday school superintendent for a number of years at First United Presbyterian Church in Toledo and led the Sunday school worship time. It is good to hear the positive comments from his students and co-workers. I look forward to seeing him in heaven. My sympathy to his family for their loss.

Mr. Anderson was my Geometry and Chemistry teacher at Evergreen High School in the seventies. Apart from being an excellent teacher, he was a real class act. Mr. Anderson left such an impression on the class of '77 that we invited him to our 25th class reunion and were so touched and impressed when he showed up! I personally remember his intelligence, wisdom, patience, sense of humor and the most wonderful cardigan sweaters he wore.
Condolences to his sister and family.

Mr. Anderson was my Evergreen High School chemistry and physics teacher. He had a quiet, patient manner and very funny dry wit. He engaged students in the lessons and was one of my favorite teachers. I am sad to hear of your loss and hope there is comfort knowing he enriched so many lives when he was a teacher.

I knew Dick from work at Dana and will always remember his smiles and his laughter and his friendship.

I worked with Dick for the 12 years he was at Dana. I also happened to buy a house and was surprised to find out that it was across the street from Dick and his mother. We remained friends for many years after he retired and also after he moved away from that house. As often happens, over the years since we communicated less and less often. I am saddened to hear of his lose and I will miss him.

Richard was a gracious and godly gentleman. It was a pleasure to be his pastor when I served as interim pstor at First United Presbyterian Church in the early 1970s. I had the privilege of seeing him again before we moved to Forida in 2010. Our sympathies to the family; may the Lord bless you all.

Mr. Anderson was my high school algebra teacher at Chesterfield-Dover in 1964. He would be surprised to know that I actually graduated from college. He was a great guy who wore a slide rule tie clasp.

I worked with Richard at Dana. He was a great co-worker who could always be counted upon to get the job done. Richard eventually became the support person for the management payroll for the company. He worked very closely with the team of people who ran the payrolls. They always enjoyed Richard's help in solving problems and they appreciated his wonderful sense of humor. His friends and co-workers will always remember the time we spent with Richard at Dana.
