He was sweetness and sunshine, this youngest child of the late Robert Bryant and Lula Conner Anderson. He was loving kindness and caring and Dad to Angela, Allen, and Adam Anderson and Granddad to Jarred. Neither dark days, nor harsh people, nor hard work, nor even the war in Vietnam where he was a wounded teenage paratrooper who won a Purple Heart could take away his smile and cheerful disposition. He was helpful and good and generous to old people and little children and animals and anyone in need. He was best friend and husband and sweetheart to Carol Goodwin Anderson, and she stood by him faithfully and laughed with him in the good times and cared for him tenderly through the bad times. He treasured Carol's grown children, Cynthia Marie Dixon, Debbra Lyn Haven, and Timothy Blankenship. He was the best Uncle Johnny to Cindy Ross; Paula, Sandra, Sonny, and Susan Smallwood; Vicki Pris Sears, Edie Sears, Brandy Anderson, and Andee Sears and remembered how to have fun and played board games and war games and Cowboys and Indians with them. He was little brother to Rebecca Sears, Robert Anderson, Lou Lowder, and Vicky Ellett, whose mother said to her, "Take care of your little brother," because she was the oldest child. And Vicky did take care of her baby brother from the cool April morning when he was born in Shawsville to the hot July evening when he died in Bedford County. Cancer took Johnny's life, but it could not touch his sweetness nor dim his sunshine. Our world is sweeter and brighter because he passed through it. Arrangements are being handled by Lotz Funeral Home, Vinton. The family will receive visitors Friday, July 25, 2008, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, July 26, 2008, at Lotz Funeral Home, Vinton Chapel and burial with Military Honors will follow at Cedar Lawn Cemetery.
