Carl DeWayne Anderson

October 20, 1984 — October 24, 2013

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die.” Eccl 3:1-2 Carl DeWayne Anderson was born into time on October 20, 1984, in Prescott, Arkansas. Better known to family and friends as “Pooh”, he grew up in Gurdon surrounded by the love of his parents, Rouvenda L. Sims and Carl Freddie Anderson. “Pooh” was very creative and had a lively imagination. He attended school in Gurdon where he played basketball. His education was completed at Continental Academy located in Florida. He was a friendly and outgoing young man. He made friends easily and never met a stranger. Pooh later moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas. A hard working, intelligent young man, he was employed with Tim Parker Chrysler in Hot Springs. Pooh was a lover of music and you could always catch him jamming to the sounds of ZRO - his favorite song…”Joy”. In his free time, he loved to fish and enjoyed eating. Family as well as friends will miss his jovial spirit and smile, but will never forget his sense of humor. He lived life to the fullest and there was never a dull moment when Pooh was around. Known for his cars and style, he always took extra time to make sure his appearance was perfect. His favorite color was red and his favorite clothing label was Ecko. Pooh’s greatest accomplishments in his life were the birth of Carlia, Kamryn and Dontae. They were a source of joy and pride in his life.
