SAVANNAH - Claude Anderson, 92, died Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at home under the care of Hospice Savannah. Born in Toombs County, Georgia, Claude was the son of the late Wright and Minnie Anderson. He served in the US Navy in the Pacific Arena during World War II. He was employed by Union Bag-Camp Paper Corp, later known as Union Camp Corp, as a papermaker until his retirement in 1980. He was an active member of Clayton P. Miller Methodist Church in Savannah for many years, and spent his later years at his beloved Cokesbury United Methodist Church, where he was a member of the Men's Club. Claude had an abounding love for gospel music; he sponsored and organized countless gospel sings locally, was well-known in gospel music circles in several states, and was honored by WTOC TV as "Hometown Hero" for his support of the gospel music ministry. He had a deep and abiding love for the Lord, sharing his faith through hospital and at-home visits to the sick, tending to others in need, keeping his family connected by reunions and get-togethers, and showing his wonderful sense of humor to all. He will be greatly missed. Claude was preceded in death by two loving wives, Reba Overstreet Anderson and Lucille Norton Anderson. He was also predeceased by his twin brother Clyde Anderson and other siblings Lucille Anderson Perry, Wilbur Anderson, Harris Anderson, and Nellie Anderson Hogan. He is survived by step-daughters and husbands Sandra and Rudy Barton and Alice and Kenneth DuBose of Savannah; grandsons Chris Barton and wife Hannah and Todd Barton; great-grandson Colby Barton. He is also survived by brothers and wives Sanford and Audrey Anderson and Gilbert and Dean Anderson of Lyons, Georgia and Garland Anderson of Davenport, Florida, as well as a large number of nieces and nephews, great- and great-great nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. A memorial service celebrating Claude's life will be held at Cokesbury United Methodist Church, Savannah, Georgia on Saturday, April 24, 2010 at 11:00 am. A private burial will be held at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens, Savannah, Georgia. Fairhaven Funeral Home & Crematory 2794 US Hwy 80 Garden City, GA 31408 912-964-2862
