Huntsville, AL

In Loving Memory of John Landon Anderson “Coach A”, also affectionately known as "Beef", “Bull”, "Bone Crusher", "Daddy", and "Daddio", our beloved teacher, coach, father, brother, uncle, and friend.John Landon Anderson, born on September 24, 1960, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama lived a life filled with love, dedication, and profound impact. He graduated from Virgil I. Grissom High School (Class of 1978) and obtained his teaching certificate from Athens State University. He made a positive difference in his community, leaving an indelible mark through his esteemed teaching and coaching career at Grissom High School, Huntsville High School, Madison County High School, Randolph High School, Mountain Gap Middle School, and Whitesburg Christian Academy.He is survived by his cherished children, Landon Rae Koob (Chris) and Griffin Miller Anderson, along with his loving brother, Todd Anderson (Meg), nieces, Leigh Mathews (Jason), Megan Hayes (Joe), Katie Martz (Matthew), Emily Anderson, and nephew, Thomas Anderson. We can’t forget about his best furry friend, Joe Willy (namesake of Joe Namath). John's legacy of warmth and guidance lives on through his family and all those whose lives he touched. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Barry Anderson and Claire Pickett and sister, Leslie Vallely, who are now joyfully reunited in eternal embrace.As a devoted and nurturing father to Landon and Griffin, John's family stood as the cornerstone of his life. He poured boundless love and unwavering support into each of them, creating a home brimming with laughter, joy, and unconditional love. John was a dedicated and engaged father, attending all of Landon and Griffin’s activities and games, and even serving as Griffin’s coach for the majority of his teams. His legacy of love and devotion will continue to resonate through the deep bonds he shared with his children and extended family.John's influence extended far beyond his immediate family, reaching into the lives of his dear friends, students, former players, and colleagues. Together, they shared countless cherished memories, laughter, and moments of togetherness, forming bonds that will endure a lifetime.Throughout his journey, John's impact as a coach, mentor, and friend touched the hearts of many. His legacy of leadership, compassion, and dedication will forever be remembered by the countless lives he influenced (too many to count), the lessons he imparted, and the indelible mark he left on the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.John had a passion for Alabama football, cheering passionately for his beloved Crimson Tide with the rallying cry of "Roll Tide!" Let’s not forget his favorite NFL team, the Green Bay Packers (Go Pack!). He found immense joy and camaraderie in supporting his teams, celebrating victories, and embracing the spirit of competition with unwavering enthusiasm (and sometimes a few choice words hollered at the TV).Beyond the sidelines, John found solace and joy in the tranquility of the beach. His favorite destinations included the sandy shores of South Alabama and various beaches along the Florida panhandle. Whether basking in the warmth of the sun, tossing a football with friends and family, floating on a tube, or listening to some beach tunes, John found peace and rejuvenation in the ocean's embrace. He also had a special affinity for the movie Rocky (he loved the theme song “Gonna Fly Now”), often quoting lines from it and finding inspiration in its themes of determination and perseverance. Additionally, his love for classic television knew no bounds; he could effortlessly recite every line from “The Andy Griffith Show”, bringing laughter and joy to those around him with his spot-on impressions and deep appreciation for the show's humor.John's love for life, family, and sports, particularly his cherished Alabama football, brought light and laughter to all who knew him. Though he may no longer walk among us, his spirit lives on through the love and memories he shared with his family and friends.May we find comfort in the cherished moments we shared with him and honor his memory by carrying forward his legacy of love, kindness, and unwavering support for others.Rest in peace, dear John. You will be deeply missed, but your spirit will continue to shine brightly through the love you shared and the lives you touched. Roll Tide!Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Latham Church, with the celebration of life service immediately following.
