Boyd Anderson

Boyd Anderson, of Thatcher, entered life eternal Monday, January 10, 2022, at his residence. He was 85.

Boyd E. Anderson entered this life on June 18, 1936 in Haney, Wisconsin to Elmer “Andy” Anderson and Elizabeth “Bette” Jeffers Anderson.

He was a skilled mason, helping to build many structures in the valley and very particular to the quality of work. He enjoyed riding his bicycle, fishing and spending time with family.

One of his proudest achievements was becoming an Eagle Scout at a young age. Boyd, along with his parents and siblings, traveled all over the United States as his father was a Native American Educator for his entire career.

He met Gladys Blount in Safford, AZ. They were married in April 1961, and had three children; Marcia, Tina and Jerry.

Boyd moved away on his own for many years, returning to spend quality time with his mother and children. The family was blessed to reunite and get reacquainted once more.

He is survived by: his siblings, Marie Anderson, Alan (Jo) Anderson and Dean (Patti) Anderson; the mother of his children, Gladys Blount Anderson; children, Marcia Bedolla and Tina Anderson; grandchildren Brandon (Nicole) Bedolla, Eric (Mariah) Bedolla and Brittany Bedolla; great-grandchildren Dylon, Jesse, Bella, Talia, Hayden and Luna; nieces Debbie, Cindy, Sherrie, Bette, Lanette and Tawny; and his Fur-baby, Scamper.

He was predeceased by: his parents, Elmer "Andy" Harvey and Elizabeth "Bette" Jeffers Anderson; a nephew, Jon Daniels; a son, Jerold Wayne Anderson; and a son-in-law, Vinny Bedolla.

Graveside Memorial Services for Boyd will be conducted Saturday, February 5, 2022, at 2:00 p.m., in the Safford Cemetery by Pastor Kevin West of the True Hope Fellowship Church.

Dad, you will be missed. See you on the other side.

RIP Dad Anderson! From the time Jerry and I were able to find you in that rough neighborhood in California until the last visit we had at my house, you told me I was your daughter and you treated me as such. You always thanked me for being such a great wife to Jerry for 34 years. I enjoyed your old stories. I always enjoyed our visits after Jerry died. They were special. You hugged me and told me how much you loved me at the end of every visit we had. I treasure my memories from all of our visits. Dad, please give Jerry a hug and tell him that I miss him more every day and I love him so much! I'm so thankful I got to have you in my life. I love you and I'm already missing you!! ♥οΈπŸ€—
