Birth: Sep. 24, 1928
Death: Nov. 20, 2012

1928 - 2012

Jesse Roger Anderson, 84, of New Boston, embraced the loving arms of Jesus on November 20, 2012, at SOMC Hospice.

Jesse was born in Fullerton, Ky. on September 24, 1928, the son of Virginia and Guy Anderson.

He grew up in the Portsmouth area with his brothers, Tracy and Charles and sister, Barbara.

Jesse was a veteran of the Army Air Force in World War II. He became a devoted Christian and earnestly passed these beliefs on to his family and friends. Jesse was a child of the Great Depression years and learned ‘to make do' with very little. While visiting with his grandmother in Kentucky, he lost the nickel she had given him for the ferry ride back to Ohio. He found a log which he used to help him get back across the river. He carried that same pragmatic sensibility coupled with a wonderful sense of humor, throughout his life.

Jesse is survived by six children, Michael, Donald, Patricia Sue, Roger Paul, Rhonda and Brenda, twelve grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

One grandchild preceded him in death.

His belief in God and love for his family was always apparent.

Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Friday, November 23, 2012, at MELCHER FUNERAL HOME. Burial will be at Anderson Family Cemetery in Greenup County, Ky. There will be Military Graveside Rites by The James Dickey Post 23 American Legion.

Friends may call Friday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at MELCHER FUNERAL HOME.

With loving fondness we will remember his enriching presence in our lives. Jesse's family.
