Mr. Anderson served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War. He was a loyal employee for Delta Airlines for 42 years. At Delta, Junior worked his way through the ranks where he finally reached the position of aircraft mechanic. He was known by everyone he knew to be a hard worker and received special recognition from Delta for not missing a day of work for ten years straight. Junior will be remembered by his family as always having something to tinker with in his shop. Whether it be a car, motorcycle, or airplane; he could fix it and if he couldn't fix it then it was definitely broken. He was also a long-time member of the American Legion Post- 112.

Mr. Anderson is preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Frances Eley Anderson; and brothers, Bobby Kane Anderson and Carlton Franklin Anderson.

He is survived by his son Dale Anderson (Libby); brothers, Jerome Berry Anderson (Anne), Roland Hugh Anderson (June), and Elton Hayes Anderson (Molly); sisters, Barbara Dell Colson (Shelby) and Maxine A. Nolen (Aubrey); grandchildren, Jennifer Layton O'Neal (David) and Walter "Little Dale" Anderson; one great grandchild, Gerald "Thomas" Maguire, III, and numerous nieces and nephews.
