Bruce Delone Anderson Jr.

July 11, 1972–Aug. 20, 2020


Bruce Delone Anderson Jr., 48, of Ironton, passed away Aug. 20, 2020.


The son of the late Patricia Baker, he was born July 11, 1972.


He was also preceded in death by his sisters, Melissa and Angelia Anderson.


Surviving family includes sisters, Sylvia Rouse and Michelle Nevitt; many nieces and nephews; one son, Justin Anderson, of Charlotte, North Carolina, and his mother, Tammy Davis, who he remained good friend over the years; three previous stepchildren who loved as his own, Isaac, Josie and Brooklyn Howard, of Willow Wood, and their mother, Crystal Cade Anderson, who he also remained good friends.


He proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1991–1995 and currently worked at The Armory Smokehouse and Frisch’s for over six years, where he had made a ton of loving friends who had turned into part of his family. One in particular who would always be known as a BFF, Rhonda Pelfrey.


His greatest time of the year was football season, of course. He was a true and proud Panthers fan until the end.


His wishes were to be cremated, therefore those will be followed.


Further arrangements are pending through his family.
