Johnny William Anderson, 68, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, died Monday, December
14, 2015 at his home. Johnny was born on February 10, 1947 in McAlester,
Oklahoma to Edna (Nail) and Frank Anderson.
In his retirement years, Johnny enjoyed playing pool on local teams and
spending time with his grandkids. Johnny worked a variety of construction
jobs through the years. As a young man, Johnny attended Jones Academy
in Hartshorne, Oklahoma where he played football for the Hartshorne Miners.
His only fault, one sports writer noted in the mid-60s, was that Johnny
had too much desire for his 145-pound body. At 68, Johnny still possessed
the same determination and strength as he fought a long and valiant fight
with pancreatic cancer.
Johnny is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Edna, his sisters,
Bessie Kirby, and Lola Mae Perkins, and his daughter, Marcella Leflore.
Johnny is survived by his devoted wife, Donna, his brother Robert Smith
(Linda) of Hartshorne, Oklahoma, his step-children, Scott Hook (Terry)
of Ocala, Florida, Kim Foster of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Lisa Eiken (Scott)
of Kansas City, Missouri, beloved nieces and nephews, and many treasured
Celebration of Life will be held at 10:00 A.M., Saturday, December 19,
2015, at Butler-Stumpff Funeral Home, 2103 East 3rd Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
