Hershel Anderson



Hershel Elbert Anderson, age 83, of Greenfield passed away Friday, June 17, 2022, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Whitesburg, Kentucky on May 21, 1939, to George “Curt” and Betty (Webb) Anderson.

He worked for the railroad as a welder in the trainyard. His life’s passion was to “kick concrete”, push around dirt, and operate his bulldozer, backhoes, and heavy equipment.

He was a fan of the Indianapolis Colts and Tony Stewart. He enjoyed working, boating, and fishing. He loved his kids and grandkids “with all his heart”.

He fought the good fight. He finished the race. Now Hershel is home with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Dean Anderson (Darlene) of Cleveland, Tennessee; daughters, Penny Anderson of Greenfield, and Lori Anderson (Colby) of Campbellsburg, Kentucky; significant other, Carolyn Anderson; sisters, Emma Cole, Wilma June Baker, and Mabelene Hammons (Winston); 12 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren (with another on the way); and several cousins, nieces, and nephews.
