North Alabama Conference retired elder Dr. Barry Anderson died Jan. 29, 2011.
The arrangements are as follows:
Bishop Will Willimon says, “Barry Anderson was one of our strongest and most able pastors. I have treasured his counsel and guidance. In my last conversation with him, just a few weeks ago, he was most interested in what we were doing to move our church forward. He was a great encouragement and I will miss him.”
Rev. Anderson was ordained an elder in 1960. During his ministry he served Tuscaloosa First UMC (as Associate); Hanceville-Bangor UMC; Latham UMC; as Huntsville District Superintendent; Huntsville Senior Center; Athens First UMC; as Tuscaloosa District Superintendent; and Florence First UMC. He retired in 2000.
Please remember his wife, Barabara, and children in your prayers during this time.
