Billy Gene Anderson

El Paso - Our beloved Billy was born on June 19, 1934, to Henry and Elda Anderson. He was called to serve in Heaven on July 9, 2021.

Billy left his Tulsa, Oklahoma home in 1956 to proudly serve our country until 1996. He was an M-16 Rifle Expert, M-14 Rifle Expert, earned a National Defense Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal (7th Award), Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Good Conduct Medal (8th Award), Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Ribbon "2", NCO Professional Development Ribbon "3", and Meritorious Service Medal.

His love of roller skating led to finding the love of his life, Patsy Lavern Ross and together they formed a family with the birth of their daughter Terri Lyn Anderson. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed spending time with his buddies at Underwood Golf Course.

Having begun and ending his military career at Fort Bliss, Billy always said that although he was drafted, the US Army was one of the best things that ever happened to him. He is preceded in death by his beautiful daughter, Terri and his loving wife Patsy Anderson. Many thanks to Kindred Hospice and Oasis Foster Home for care during his time on earth.

Pop is resting peacefully now that he is once again with Mom and Teri. I've known this family since I was 15 and shared many memories with them. They were my extended Anderson family. I recall when Teri got her red Mustang. She loved that car. I recall when Mom wanted her car painted white, and it came back black. She was not happy. I remember when Pop retired from the army. That was a momentous occasion we all shared, and celebrated. I recall their many pets from the dogs, birds, to the pot bellied pig. Moms love of clocks was handed down to Teri. They all loved Pepsi, and Coke, popcorn, and ice cream. I miss Teri, Mom, and now Pop. I wish I could have gone to the services to say farewell, until we meet again. Please say hello to my mom, dad, and Don for me.

Mr. Anderson, Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army-especially during the Cold War. Millions of Americans slept safe at night because you and your fellow Servicemen and women stood ready to defend our Country. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
