Kind, healthy centenarian dies in fire

Roy W. Anderson , 100

By David V. Graham JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Mt. Morris Twp. - Roy W. Anderson was a "do-it-yourself" kind of guy who enjoyed good health over his 100 years. Anderson died in a house fire early Wednesday morning. Fire officials said it appears that Anderson's house in the Mary Gardens subdivision caught fire sometime before 4:30 a.m. Wednesday when an electric blanket may have malfunctioned and started a bed on fire. Anderson apparently tried to escape, but didn't make it to a door because he apparently tripped over a chair in the heavy smoke, fire officials said. His granddaughter, Gayle Leavitt of Swartz Creek, said her granddad was the kind of guy who would clear his neighbors' dr iveways with his snowblower without even being asked. "Whenever it snowed, he would want to clear off the end of his driveway right away so the schoolkids could get on their bus right there," she said. "He was a very kind, generous man," she said. "He was known to everyone as a real gentleman. Everyone knew his name whenever he would walk into Sorrentos restaurant in Flushing." She said Anderson came from a large family in Minnesota where all of his brothers and sisters lived into their 90s. At least one brother made it to 102, she said. "He was still very alert, and he was still driving his own car," she said. Anderson was born in 1903 in Ashby, Minn., and moved to Flint 80 years ago to work at Buick as a tool crib attendant. He retired from Buick after 42 years. Family members said he was an avid reader who enjoyed talking about current events and who loved to hunt, fish and do yard work. Neighbors said he was a kind man who lived a quiet life. A friend said Anderson often drove to Minnesota in his Buick to visit his brothers and sisters. He often drove by himself, even in his 90's. He leaves his son, Dallas, of Flint; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren. Services will be at 11 a. m. Saturday at Brown Funeral Home, 1480 E. Hill Road in Grand Blanc.
