William "Bill"

Anderson III

Selden William "Bill" Anderson III, passed away peacefully on July 20, 2016 in Hudson, Ohio. He was born on February 7, 1938 in Akron, Ohio to Mary (nee Sadler) and Selden William Anderson Jr. He was educated at Old Trail School, University School, Hudson High School and Heidelberg College. After serving in the Air Force for four years in both Japan and Thailand he returned to work for and became president of the Anderson Rubber Company, which was founded in Akron, Ohio by his grandfather in 1910. He retired and moved with his wife,

Karen, to live for several years in Charlottesville, VA where they enjoyed friends, cousins and the University of Virginia Cavaliers. They returned to their beloved Hudson in 2009 to the delight of their many friends.

Bill's first love was always his dear family who survive him; wife, Karen (nee Fraelich) and daughter, Elizabeth Turner Anderson of West Palm Beach, Florida. He was an enthusiastic forty year member of the Hudson Volunteer Fire Dept and retired as Assistant Chief. He also was a member of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) where he spent many Sundays with his fellow veterans watching the Browns games and enjoying a few beers.

Bill was much loved, a kind and loyal friend always full of quips and bringing humor to any situation. He was quite simply the life of the party and could quickly fill a room with a booming laugh and a warm smile.

He is also survived by his sister, Nancy Anderson Shepard of Blue Bell Pa; nieces and nephews and many cousins.

A service in celebration of Bill's life will be held on Friday, August 26, 2016 at 1pm at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 55 Atterbury Boulevard, Hudson, Ohio 44236.
