Phil Anderson, age 58, passed away Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah. The lifelong resident of Reidsville was a well known fixture around town. From the time he graduated from Pinewood Christian Academy in 1979, he went into the family business at Anderson Pecan Company. Venturing out on his own, he was the owner of Reidsville Farm Center for many years and served the needs of countless farmers and backyard gardeners throughout the county. It was at the local farm store that many locals could catch up on the latest news and happenings. The onslaught of “big box” stores forced an end to many small business, Reidsville Farm Center was no exception. When Phil closed the store, he facilitated a sale of the property that would ultimately lead to McDonald’s coming to Reidsville. His most recent occupation was at Burn’s Auto Parts where he could always be counted on to greet you by name and help you with the hometown hospitality of a true southern gentleman. Perhaps his gentle spirit come from his faith; he served the Lord as a member at Reidsville United Methodist Church. He is preceded in death by his parents, Northern and Ruby Anderson
He is survived by his siblings, Dale and Gale Anderson of Reidsville; niece, Kera Anderson of Reidsville and several cousins.
