Michael B. Anderson, MD

Oct. 19, 1952-Nov. 18, 2020

Michael Blake Anderson – beloved husband, father, Papa, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend – passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, in the early hours of the morning in Oklahoma City. Born in Miami, Oklahoma, to John G. and Emma E. (Hill) Anderson. Michael grew up alongside his three brothers in Claremore and Broken Arrow, OK. When he was 17 years old, he volunteered for the United States Army after completing high school. His mother agreed to sign giving permission for him to enlist. After completing his Tour of Duty, Vietnam, in 1971, and the Oklahoma National Guard until 1973, he pursued college with the dreams of becoming a physician.

Michael was educated at the University of Oklahoma (MD, 1979). He completed his Family Practice Residency at Garfield County Family Practice Residency Program, Enid, OK 1980 – 1982.

Dr. Anderson worked for Mercy Health Canadian County in Yukon, OK, from 2004 to his passing. Previous work assignments include McBride Clinic, Saints Occupational Health Center, Saints Family Health Center, Meridian Occupational Health Center, Springer Clinic and Central Oklahoma Medical Group. Dr. Anderson deeply cherished his colleagues and patients. He had many early mornings and long nights making sure that each one of his patients was thoroughly cared for.

Dr. Anderson was a member of the Bethany First Church of the Nazarene and was president elect of his Sunday School class. He was also a proud member of the Choctaw Nation. He has been described by many as being exceedingly kind, compassionate, a great conversationalist, a generous and loving man by his family, friends, colleagues, and patients. He always had a good joke and a smile on his face. He embraced and cherished every moment of life. Dr. Anderson was a loving husband who adored his wife, children, and grandchildren. He always had time to lend an ear and to counsel and support those he loved. He celebrated the success of those around him and would make it known that he was everyone's number one fan. He was our beloved "Papa" who shared his love so freely and had no hesitation expressing his pride in his children and grandchildren. He sat through hours of graduations, vocal concerts, theatrical plays, and ball games. He never told his grandchildren, "no". His favorite activities included reading, puzzles, endless bingo games and traveling, his favorite place being San Diego. He will be very deeply missed by everyone.

Dr. Anderson was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents; his parents, John G. Anderson, Jr. and Emma E. Sanders; an aunt and two uncles; and one stepson, Charles L. Labadie.

Please accept our deepest sympathy in your time of loss. We have been with Dr Anderson for over 20 years. He always met you with a smile. He would answer emails in a few hours, instead of days. We pray for God's healing power to heal your hearts. He is surely going to be missed by our family.

My condolences to Dr. Anderson´s family and friends. I was a new patient of his and was so relieved when I was in his care. I have a complicated medical history and I could tell right away that he was empathetic and has a genuine concern for his patients. I knew for the first time in a long time that I would be well taken of. My prayers go out for everyone who feel this loss.

Dr. Anderson was one of the most kind, loving men I’ve ever known. My wife and I met him through my parents; they were patients of his. When we moved back home in 2015 he became our doctor. And more importantly our friend. We’ll dearly miss him, but have been so blessed to have him in our life.

We've seen Dr Anderson for more than 20 years. I always knew he'd be irreplaceable. We are devastated. He was more than our doctor. He saved my husband's life three times because of his attentiveness and he's cared for my family like a very dear friend. Hugely missed.

My husband (Oscar) and I started going to Dr. Anderson when he was at the Speed Professional Building in Mustang. Of all the doctors we have had in our lifetimes, he was our favorite. He was so compassionate and he was like family more than our doctor. His death came as a shock. Our prayers go out to his family that the Lord will give them the comfort they need at this time. We know he is with the Lord.

We were devastated to hear the news about Dr. Anderson. He was my husband´s doctor (and my mother-in-law´s before that). He always answered our questions and concerns in such a kind way. He will be missed dearly! May God bless his family and hold them close during this challenging and incomprehensible time for them.

My physician & friend of over 25 years will be deeply missed. The first time I met him I was 14 years old & he worked in the Speed Professional Building. He was truly the kindest & most compassionate man. I will miss the joke of the day he would tell me when I went in for my monthly visit & how he always asked about my kiddo. He just felt like family. No one will ever fill his shoes. My prayers are with the Anderson family during this difficult time.
