Obituary of Jack Wyman Anderson

Jack Wyman Anderson



Jack Wyman Anderson, 67, returned to his heavenly home on February 29, 2024 after a valiant battle with Multiple Sclerosis over the last 30 years.  His devotion to his church, family, and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace.  


Jack was born the youngest of four children, to the late Wilma Porter and Wyman “Bud” Anderson on February 16, 1957 in Sacramento California.  Jack was immersed in the Christian community that would be his lifelong support from an early age.  He was an avid youth group member which led to him being an Associate Pastor as an adult.  He graduated from Roseburg High School in 1975.  


Jack was blessed to marry his best friend and fellow Christian, Rebecca Anne Hollinsead, on November 25, 1978 in Roseburg Oregon.  Jack helped raise his children with patience, discipline, and humility.  From the very beginning he dedicated his children to God and encouraged them to explore the beauty of the gospels.  


Jack is survived by  his wife, Rebecca, his children, Trisha Meeker and Matthew Anderson, and daughter in law, Julie Anderson, his grandchildren, Kyra and Lincoln Anderson, his sister, Susan Carver, and brother, Joe Anderson.  He is preceded in death by his sister, Sherry Finley,  and his parents.  


A Celebration of Life service will be held at The First Baptist Church of Lakewood on Saturday April 13th at 2:00pm, with a reception to follow.  In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the First Baptist Church or Lakewood: AWANA scholarships in honor of Jack. 

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
