Rodney Anderson


It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our beloved, Rodney Jimmy Lee Anderson, who left us unexpectedly on the 11th day of October. “RJ,” as he was affectionately known, was born on the seventh day of July of two-thousand and two in Manning, SC; a beautiful, bouncing baby boy who filled our lives with his gentle and quiet love. RJ is gone too soon but will be remembered for his kind heart, humor, and love for his family and friends. 

 He leaves a long-lasting imprint that spans from SC to OH. He completed his elementary, middle, and some high school in Orangeburg, SC. At the maturing age of 15, he moved to Dayton, OH, and later graduated from Centerville High School in Centerville, OH. At the time of his transition, he was enrolled at the University of Cincinnati majoring in Physical Therapy. He was a member of True Vine Temple in Orangeburg, SC, and The Vineyard Church in Cincinnati, OH.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Vera L. White Patterson; great-grandparents, Freddie S. and Lula Bell White; his paternal grandparents, Edward and Carolyn Anderson; and uncle, Wesley Anderson.

Cherished memories are left with his: mother, Romaine (Leroy) Stephens, of Orangeburg, SC; father, Rodney M. Anderson, of Dayton, OH; maternal grandparents, Jimmy Lee and Barbara Patterson, of Orangeburg, SC; “Nana”, Michelle B. (Jeffery) White Gardner, of Beaufort, SC; maternal aunt, Christy K.(Brandon Gregg) Patterson, of Orangeburg, SC; paternal aunts, Veronica (Marty) McMichael, of Dayton, OH and Vanessa Anderson, of Santee, SC; maternal grand-aunt, Joan Shelia White Green, of Beaufort, SC; grand-uncles, Calvin (Cynthia) White, of Beaufort, SC; Roosevelt (Mildred) Patterson and Heyward (Sylvia) Patterson, both of Eastover, SC; paternal grand-uncle, Isaac (Helen) Wright, of Santee, SC; grand-aunts, Louise Smalls and Ida Scott, both of Vance, SC; Sterling(Erika)Langley, Shawn(Monica) Langley, Aaron (Kenitria) Langley, and Tonya Langley; his loving godparents, special cousins, Amarie, Marty, TJ, and Victor; and a host of other relatives and friends.

 His passing leaves a gaping hole in our lives and a tremendous void in each of our hearts. While we know life will never be the same without him, we know our hearts will forever encapsulate our love for our “RJim.”  

RJ, the light you’ve shined on this Earth can never be dimmed, but we know it shines brighter with the Father.  Your smile was as genuine as your spirit. The joy you’ve given us for 19 years will be the solace we rely on to help us through the coming days, weeks, months, and years without you. RJ…you got us with this one! But, we know God will get us through it...SOME HOW...SOME WAY..ONE DAY.

We will always…always love - RODNEY JIMMY LEE!
