Dr. Thomas R. Anderson, 54, of 9505 N. County Road 275 West, died unexpectedly at 6:40 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 27, 2008, at Logansport Memorial Hospital.
He was born June 14, 1954, in Jacksonville, Ill., to Orieda Horn Anderson of Moline, Ill., and the late Howard Anderson. He graduated from high school in Clinton, Iowa, in 1972, received a bachelor's degree in biology from Northwestern University in 1978, a medical degree from the University of Iowa in 1982, and did his residency at Ball Memorial Hospital, Muncie, in 1985, in family practice. He married Lucinda A. "Cindy" Been in Burrows on Dec. 30, 1978, and she survives.
He joined the emergency room staff at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Lafayette, then joined Arnett Health, working in Lafayette and Delphi. He began a family practice in Delphi in 1985, and had his office in Camden since 1990.
Dr. Anderson was a member of Hickory Grove Church, the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Family Practitioners. He enjoyed singing in the church choir, making pottery, vegetable gardening, beekeeping, cooking and woodworking.
