Our Wonderful and loving father, husband, grandfather, brother-in-law, and friend, Fletcher Anderson passed away Sunday, April 5, 2020, in New Orleans, at the age of 82. He was the cherished patriarch of our family, guiding us, protecting us, teaching us, loving us, and supporting us. He was always there for all of us. He was our role model, our hero. The pride and love he had for his family were immeasurable. He was a man of his word and was exceedingly responsible, honest, and reliable. He was a devoted friend to many. He will be sorely missed and remembered forever.

Fletcher was born Feb. 25, 1938, to Venice Mildred Anderson Miller and the proud step-son of Victor Miller of Bogalusa. He was the only child. Fletcher met and married his grade school “sweetheart,” the late Cynthia Baker Anderson. From their union, three children were born: Sonai Anderson Smith, Gamble Anderson Rudd and Patrick Anderson.

He leaves to mourn: grandchildren, Jered Rudd, Fletcher Rudd, and Cynthia Smith the light of his heart; and a devoted brother-in-law, Phillip Baker.

We celebrate all of the love he gave to his family, friends and community. His legacy of a life well-lived with faith and love.

“We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19).
