Jack Talbot Anderson
Jack Talbot Anderson Sr., of Decatur, Alabama, went to be with the Lord on Monday Oct. 14, 2019.
Visitation will begin at 10 a.m. with the funeral service following at noon Friday, Oct. 18, at First Bible Church in Decatur, Alabama. Pastors Steve Bateman, Paul Cheshier and Paul Lamey will be officiating, and the graveside service will immediately follow at Decatur City Cemetery. Jack is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Shara McRae Anderson; his children, Burt Talbot Anderson and wife Gabriela, Jack Talbot Anderson Jr. and wife Leslie, Ben Walton Anderson and wife Karen; 12 grandchildren, Caleb, Andrew, Bennett, Allie, Tanner, Jack (III), Will, Ty, Hannah, Rosie, Lucy and Ozzie; sister-in-law, Jan Anderson; and his three nephews, Greg, Walton and Owen Anderson. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Walton Anderson and Elizabeth Townsend Anderson; his grandchild, Robert Thomas Anderson; and his brother, John Walton "Andy" Anderson. Jack was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama. He graduated from the University of Alabama in 1971 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce and Business Administration (BSCBA) and was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. He immediately returned to Decatur and entered the farming business with his father and brother, growing cotton for nearly 50 years in Limestone County and North Alabama. Most importantly, he was a pillar of strength to his family - a faithful husband, a loving father, a proud and beloved grandfather, a loyal friend who loved Christ Jesus the Lord, and a member and servant-leader at First Bible Church. Likewise, he was an exceptionally skilled outdoorsman who loved hunting with his dogs, fishing, playing golf and being involved in all the kids' sports, activities and events. Pallbearers include Jack's sons, Burt T. Anderson, Jack T. Anderson Jr. and Ben W. Anderson; and his nephews, Greg Anderson, Walton Anderson and Owen Anderson. His beloved friends, Rick Sanders, James Whitmire, Ralph Hurst and Mike Putnam, will be honorary pallbearers. Memorial gifts may be made to First Bible Church Building Fund. Roselawn Funeral Home is honored to be of service to the family of Jack Anderson.
