Obituary Image


Raymond Anderson, Jr. was born October 24, 1965 in Emporia, Virginia to the late Raymond Anderson, Sr. and Cherry Hawthorne Anderson. He transitioned to his heavenly home on April 17, 2020.


He was educated in Greensville County Public Schools, graduating from Greensville County High School. 


Raymond accepted the Lord as his Savior at an early age and became a member of Little Shiloh Baptist Church as a child. 


Raymond Jr. inherited his love of music from his dad, Raymond Sr. He would go on to play the bass guitar and sing with numerous groups from his teens until he transitioned from labor to reward; notably, The Gospelettes and The Anointed Voices of Heaven. It also brought joy to his mother’s heart to see him use his gift, recently joining the Little Shiloh Baptist Church choir.


Raymond was a very hard worker. He spent 33 years at his second home, the Greensville County Bus Garage. When he was not at the bus garage you could find him at Bad Boys Auto, working on cars or on the farm. 


In his leisure, Raymond enjoyed fishing, playing cornhole, hanging at the race track with R & P Racing, and watching the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Lakers. 


Raymond had a huge sense of humor and an even bigger heart to match. We will miss his infectious laugh and his melodious singing. 


Raymond leaves to cherish his dear mother, Cherry Hawthorne Anderson of Jarratt, VA; his beloved children, Kanisha Williams (Tanga) of Newport News, VA, Jaleesa Robinson (Brandon) of Spokane, WA, Keandra Smith of Petersburg, VA, Tiffany Jones (Yaseen) of Hanover, MD, Jalen Anderson of Jarratt, VA, Michelle Butler of Emporia, VA; 2 children he loved as his own, Raven Mason of Jarratt, VA and Rashard Pearson of Hampton, VA; his loving grandchildren, Karmesha, Mariyah, Mari’yana, Alisa, Ziyah, and Aiden; his precious Goddaughter, De’Ja Mangrum; his devoted siblings, Queen Smith (Harvey) of Emporia, VA, Veronica Anderson and David Anderson (Yolanda) both of Jarratt, VA, his former wife of 18 years, Lisa Cain; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and co-workers.
