In the early morning of February 16, 2013, Henry Martin Anderson Sr., Mulberry, Fla., passed peacefully into the world of angels after a short battle with cancer. He was surrounded by the comfort and love of his closest family. A wise man, born in Scranton to Henry and Mildred Anderson, and after raising his only son. Henry Jr., in Madisonville, he later moved out of this icy, winter wasteland to the warmth of Florida where he met the love of his life, Lois. He spent his days listening to blue grass music, enjoyed great diners, classic car shows, riding his motorcycle and sitting in the sunshine.

He loved to drive anything on two wheels but his favorites were those with 18, a trait he passed on to Henry Jr. Most of his life was spent behind the wheel hauling just about everything to just about everywhere is the U.S.
His friendly smile and gift to gab made him friends where ever he went. He is survived by and will be sorely missed by his caring, sweet fiancée, Lois Smith; his loving son, Henry Jr.; two adoring grandchildren, Gavin and Reese; and his dearest siblings, Linda, Millie, Paul, Tom and Donald; his stepmom, Jenny; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. A private family gathering was held in Florida.
