Wayne Irving “Andy” Anderson was born Feb. 16, 1933, in Wells Township, Michigan. After high school, Wayne worked for Woolworths and later joined the Armed Forces, eventually serving as a drill sergeant.
After leaving the military, he went on to become a salesman for Green Thumb Corporation. He later started his own nursery named Fancy Plants.
So many folks admired how he built greenhouses that he was coaxed into building greenhouses for other people. That evolved into a greenhouse demolition and reconstruction business, and then he added the sales of industrial fans.
He was very active in the community. He was an avid Packard car collector. He spent a great deal of time with the Apopka Rotary and the Oakland Presbyterian Church.
He loved his wife, Linda Vivian Anderson, and they were married for more than 60 years.
Wayne helped so many people in the community. He will be remembered for his incredibly positive attitude, great smile and a never-ending willingness to help people.
Wayne is survived by his wife, Linda; sons, Karlton Edward Anderson, Kevin Wayne Anderson and his wife, Maria; grandson, Denny Wayne Anderson; brother, John Anderson and his wife, Ardis; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The memorial service for Wayne Irving Anderson is at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, at Oakland Presbyterian Church, 218 E. Oakland Ave., Oakland, FL 34760; [email protected]; (407) 656-4452.
