Ricky Lee Anderson, age 65, of Westover, passed away at his residence on Sunday, October 20 2019. 

Ricky was born January 12, 1954 in Morgantown, WV and was a son of the late Cline  B. Anderson and the late Merle Louise Riskey Anderson. 

He is survived by his former spouse and best friend Colleen Anderson of Westover; his two sons, Travis Anderson and his companion Jane Sharak of Core and Mike Dewitt and his wife Heather of Morgantown; three step children, Arlene Clemsic and husband Jason of Waldorf, MD, Christina Millican and companion Joe Buncic of Smithfield, PA, and Kenny Prisock at home; a grandson, Travis Anderson, Jr.; four step grandchildren, Brittani Thompson and husband Kenny of Westover, Austin Tennant of Morgantown, Kami Clemsic of South Carolina, and Jay Clemsic of South Carolina; two brothers, Larry Anderson and wife Patty of Tennessee, Terry C. Anderson of Morgantown; a sister, Merlene King and husband Mike of Morgantown; and his faithful companion, Peanut. 

Ricky was preceded in death by one son-in-law, Eddie Millican, and a great-granddaughter, Nevaeh. 

Ricky was a simple person who enjoyed the simple things in life - sitting outside listening to old records, spending time on the back porch with his best friend, Brian Shinkovich or talking about anything and everything with his nephew, Anthony Rose or special family friend, Frank Swanger.  He was a sports fan and enjoyed following Steelers football.  But more than anything, he was a devoted companion, and tireless caregiver to his stepson, Kenny. 

Ricky’s request to be cremated has been honored.  A service to celebrate his life will be held at a date and time to be announced.
