William "Bill" M. Anderson passed away unexpectedly at his home on November 10, 2018.
Bill was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 16, 1961 to Dee and Venus May Anderson. Since he was a late in life baby, he enjoyed the luxury of being loved and spoiled by his nieces and nephews. Bill dearly loved his sisters and an older brother who constantly gave him good advice.
After graduating from high school, he moved to Huntington, Utah to seek work in the coal mines. That occupation became his passion. He worked at Deer Creek, Genwall, Consol, West Ridge and Lila Canyon. After moving to Huntington, he met the love of his life, Carla Rae Stokes and they were married on a beautiful spring day in Huntington Canyon on June 24, 1990
He enjoyed his position as a boss and according to Bill he had the most awesome crews in the mine. The men enjoyed his sense of humor and if you were a friend to bill you were a friend for life. Bill enjoyed riding horses and did so every chance he got. He owned some amazing cow dogs.
Bill and Carla have two awesome children. Casey William Anderson and Crystal Rae Hansen. Bill's greatest love in this world have been Casey and Crystal and three of the most Beautiful little grandbabies in this world Brinley, Braelyn and Brielle.
Coal trucks driving down the highway would honk at Bill as he was pulling a little red wagon with his three little girls enjoying the ride while holding their favorite toys. Bill, known as "Pops" to the girls would do anything in the world for them and they knew it.
