David was born on January 5, 1948 in Kountze, Texas to Margie Mills Anders and Joe B. Anders. He lived in Orange with his wife Sandy. He was a big laid back easy going guy, who was not temperamental like some of his brothers. David graduated from Kountze High School, where he was the salutatorian of his class. He was not a bookworm, as he lettered in 4 sports for 4 consecutive years. He retired from SNC-Lavalin as the VP of Materials. David was a member of Grace Point-Eagle Heights. He was a hard working, amazing man who loved his family very much. David enjoyed hunting and golfing before his knees started to bother him. He later discovered the app for games on his phone and started playing candy crush, wordscapes and crossword puzzles.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Margie Anders, brothers, Joe Bailey Anders, Jr., Tom Anders and Terrell Anders and sister Jody Dorsett.
