COLUMBUS – Alexander Joseph Anderson (aka our Superman hero), aged 34, died on September 1, 2022 of complications from muscular dystrophy and complications caused by contracting COVID 19.
Born on May 25, 1988, Alex has lived most of his life in the East Liverpool and Wellsville areas, where he earned a GED from East Liverpool High School. Alex was a member of the National and State Muscular Dystrophy Associations, a former Ty Beanie Babies collector, and a passionate animal lover. He donated monthly to support animal welfare groups and was a PROUD fur baby father to several rescued animals that he cared for during his lifetime. Alex was an avid football fan and faithfully followed Ohio State University and the Cleveland Browns. He enjoyed watching movies and playing board games with his mother and second father. One of his favorite pastimes was playing video games with his brothers and lots of friends who came with Bruno’s pizza, hot dog shop, L&B glazed donuts or Chinese food.
Alex was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Joe Anderson; his maternal grandparents, Al and Shirley Green; his cousin Ryan Virden and his trusty guard dogs Stormy and Warlock.
His memory is remembered by his devoted mother and lifelong caregiver Abby Green Anderson Miller, second father Kevin Miller and third grandmother Nancy Miller. Other survivors include his father, Joey Anderson; brother, Jacob Anderson and his partner Erynne Hottinger; his brother Lucas Tyler Anderson; his stepmother Vikki Anderson and stepbrother Jeremy Cowan; his maternal grandmother, Edna Steffen Anderson; his best friend Resden Nixon and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who loved him and share in this devastating loss.
There will be no office hours. In accordance with Alex’s wishes, his body was donated to science in hopes of finding a cure for MD. In lieu of flowers or other remembrance, the family is asking that you make a donation to the National Muscular Dystrophy Association or your local animal shelter.
Family and friends are invited to attend a CELEBRATION of ALEX’ LIFE that will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. at the Red Maple Landing Area of Guilford Lake State Park… From Lisbon, take Rt 172 to Hanna Drive (Kevin’ Korner Drive-Thru), turn right and follow the posted SUPERMAN signs.
