"Bishop Anderson was a deeply spiritual and holy bishop. He was a very faithful and dedicated churchman who loved his Episcopal ministry and especially the people whom he was called to serve. He was particularly dedicated in his concern and love for the poor and their struggle for justice and peace. Those of us in Archdiocese of Detroit were blessed with his presence among us as he preached and loved the gospel of Christ in his private and public life. May he enjoy now the presence of the Lord in eternal life. He was a dear friend. May he rest in peace."
Bishop Anderson served most of his time as an auxiliary bishop under the leadership of Cardinal Maida, who was chief shepherd of the Detroit Archdiocese from 1990 until 2009.
