Goodbye Kenny and Zack Anderson

Kenny Anderson

Kenny Anderson

We welcome guest commentator Mindy Spears.

Kenny Anderson and his son Zack Anderson were motorcycle riding on July 4 in Venus, Texas. Suddenly, there was a crash and they were gone.

Kenny was only 39 years old and Zack only 21.

Kenny was a welder who built his body as well as his welding. When Kenny walked in, you knew it. He had a very strong presence, both physically and by personality. If he was going to do something he was going to it.

But he was also protective. If you knew Kenny, you didn’t have to worry because he would protect you.

He also loved kids with both kids and grandkids. Zack was his son even though Kenny didn’t meet Mellanie, Zack’s mother, until she was already carrying Zack. But Kenny loved his boy, and Zack loved Kenny.

Zack was an animal lover like me. He loved getting fish and had a lot of them. He experimented with different combinations, and sometimes they worked and sometimes they didn’t. Sometimes I wished he didn’t experiment so much, but sometimes you don’t learn unless you experiment. Zack was a person who learned by doing, just like his dad.

But Zack was also nice and polite. He respected women and his elders. He wanted to have fun and wanted other people to have fun too.

His body was a canvas, and it seemed he was always getting a new tattoo. He altered his ears too, but his heart stayed loving.

He had a son, Liam, who’s two years old. He loved Liam very much, for like his dad he loved kids.

I miss you both.

Memorial services are scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday, July 8, 2013. They will be held at Crosier-Pearson Cleburne Funeral Home Chapel at 512 North Ridgeway Dr. in Cleburne, Texas, 76033.

  1. I’d like to add a note that I think I only met Kenny once and unfortunately never got to know him. Even though I only saw Zack for short moments at a time, it was every two to four weeks over many years. I saw him grow up from being a preteen boy to being a young man. He was always nice and respectful to me, and I was very touched when the family said that he thought a lot of me. I think a lot of him too.

  2. I’m very sorry about your loss. Age 39 and 21 are so very young. My best wishes go to the families.

    The death of a loved one is always hard. A loss at so young is doubly hard. And to lose two at once?

    Remember that even though they have gone away, they are not lost. They go to the Summerlands to review their lives. When they are ready, they will return to this world.

    Life never truly ends, but always changes. It is left to those who are left behind to continue to grow in our own lives, and to cherish the memories we hold dear.

    Blessed be.
