Herbert Dwight Anderson

d. December 28, 2019


Herbert Dwight Anderson, age 76, passed away Saturday, December 28, 2019 at the Salem Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Salem Va.

You'd never find a more loving father, husband, brother, papaw or friend than Dwight. He loved his country and proudly served in the U.S. Army. If you knew him, every conversation was interesting and never boring. He loved to laugh, and Dwight would do anything for you. In fact, Dwight could do just about anything – from fixing a small engine to playing a guitar to coaching the original "Bad News Bears." He was crazy about his family and stubbornly independent, that in itself is a good memory of Dwight. He will be missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Troy and Susie Anderson; sisters, Jessie Imajene Sexton and Norma Sue Peake.

Dwight is survived by his wife, Resa Anderson of Sugar Grove, Va.; daughters, Susanne Lairson of Dayton, Ohio and Kimberly Tarter and husband, William of Speedwell, Va.; son, Stephen Dwight Anderson of Sugar Grove, Va.; sisters, Nellie Lucille Shuler and husband, Corbin of Marion, Va., Nancy Anderson of Sugar Grove, Va., Juanita Stone and husband, Porky of Sugar Grove, Va., and Cyndi Sage of Marion, Va.; brothers, Harvey Scott Anderson and wife, Sadie of Sugar Grove, Va., Troy Mac Anderson and wife, Suanne of Troutdale, Va., and Jeffery Wayne Anderson of Wytheville, Va.; grandchildren, Adam Christian Lairson, Heidi Lynn Lairson, Ashley Allura Fields, Sage Ethan Anthony Lairson, Jodi Krista Aker, Stephen Douglas Long, and Brandon Lee Tarter; 11 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
