Kenneth W. Anderson, 73, of Venice Florida, went home to be with Jesus on November 16, 2018. He was predeceased by his loving wife Beverly and daughter Kim Marie Dudek. He is survived by his son, Kirk (Kathy) Dudek, and his daughter, Dawn (Jim) Blaszczyk, and his wife, Kathryn. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Alan, Robbie, Amanda, Brandon, Caleb, Noah, and Dustin, along with 11 great grandchildren. He enjoyed taking trips, watching plays, and seeing movies, but his greatest joy was being with family. Ken Anderson has been an example of one with a loving and compassionate heart. He also displays the character described in Philippians 2:2-5 which says: “Fill me with joy by having the same attitude and the same love, living in harmony, and keeping one purpose in mind, not acting out of selfish ambition or being conceited. Instead, humbly thinking of and valuing others as being better than yourself. Not being concerned only about your own interest, but also be concerned about the interest of others. Having the same attitude that Jesus Christ had.” Our Dad showed this loving heart when he married our Mom with three children and raised us as his own. For all of this and so much more, he will forever be loved by his family and friends. Dad, all our love is yours, Kirk, Dawn, and Family!
