Dickie Anderson Obituary

Dickie Anderson, 50, of Centralia passed away, surrounded by the love of his family, Tuesday, November 7, 2023, at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia. He was born on August 7, 1973, the son of Loyd and Linda (Showers) Anderson in Mt. Vernon. He married the love of his life, his best friend, Christie Phillips on June 29, 2002, in Centralia and she survives him in Centralia.

Along with his devoted wife Christie Anderson, survivors that will remember Dickie with a smile include his mother, Linda Wilson of Olean, Missouri; his sisters, Becky Warren of Salem, Illinois, Jennifer Wine of Olean, Missouri, Crystal Wardenburg of Olean, Missouri, Kim Smith of Centralia, Melissa Clark of New Hampshire; his brothers, Michael Gerard of Tennessee, and Jim Robinett of Hoyleton, Illinois; his mother-in-law, Loretta Phillips; his sister-in-law, Susan Wild of Brighton, Illinois, and Gail Ridgeway of DuQuoin, Illinois; many special nieces and nephews; and his furry babies, his loyal beagles, Angel and Gideon.

Dickie was preceded in death by his father, Loyd Anderson and his wife Barbara; his sister, Tammy Robinett; and his father-in-law, Larry Phillips.

Dickie lived most all his life in Centralia. He had a strong work ethic and was a loyal employee for Big 3 Precision, working as a supervisor there for 20 years. It was during this time that Dickie made many lasting friendships with his co-workers. He was an expert gamer and he and his wife, Christie were known to dominate the games they played together. They were also a great team while bowling. Dickie had a need for speed, and enjoyed watching races, especially Nascar. He liked to travel and was taken by the beauty of the landscape when he traveled out West. Dickie always looked forward to family gatherings, where he could be counted on to bring his famous barbeque. Dickie appreciated the simple things in life, he was a true loyal friend, always ready to give a listening ear, and his devotion to his family was a blessing.
