Frank Anderson

Frank R. Anderson entered eternal rest on October 5, 2021. He was born on November 13, 1937 in Scranton, South Carolina to the late Rev. Sam Mitchell Anderson and Phillis Barr Anderson. Frank graduated from Carver High School, May 1956 and was the class Valedictorian. Upon graduating from high school, Frank enlisted in the United States Air Force June 5, 1956. He was a Security Police Officer during his tenure in the USAF just like his older brother, Sam. In 1969, Frank was sent to Vietnam to guard the perimeter of the Air Force Base. In February 1970, his flight team lost 22 men in a fight with the Vietnamese enemy known as VCsshort for Vietcong. In May 1970, Sam was sent to Vietnam to allow Frank to go home. While serving in the USAF, Frank received Military Honors for his duties. After 20 years of serving his country, Frank retired from the United States Air Force on June 30, 1976. Upon retiring from the USAF, Frank decided to make San Bernardino, CA his home. He was employed by Union 76 as a gasoline truck driver for many years. Frank was a kind, giving, and compassionate man with a heart of gold! He loved dancing, music, golfing, bowling, and barbecuing on the grill. James Brown and Tupac Shakur were his favorite musical artists. Also, Frank ran the Monday Night Football pool for his buddies in the neighborhood. Watching Monday Night football and hanging with his buddies was the last thing he did before the Lord called him home.
