Birchleaf, VA – Banner Anderson, age 80 of Morgan Anderson Lane passed away Sunday, February 14, 2021 surrounded by loved ones with a smile on his face as he saw Jesus, his Lord and Savior. He was a loving husband, daddy, poppaw, brother and uncle. He thanked God each day for blessing him with a loving wife and family. He loved his children and grandchildren, but there was a special bond with his grandson Justin. They were so much alike: two peas in a pod. Hunting, fishing and music were joys that they shared. Music played a wonderful part of Banner’s life. He taught himself to play the guitar at 15 and then used that God given talent along with a beautiful voice to the witness of the Glory of God. Banner is preceded in death by his parents, Shelby and Lillie Anderson; three brothers, Tivis Canary, Bobby O’dell and W.R. Anderson; a sister, Rose Sutherland and a grandson, Eli Ryan Sutherland.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Ival Anderson; daughter Kristi (Eddie) Woodard; the light of his life grandson, Justin Anderson-Woodard; stepsons, Bob (Colleen) Sutherland, Sam (Linda) Sutherland and Jeff Sutherland; stepdaughters Vicki Newberry, Karen (Jerry) Davis and Melissa (Tim) Hayes; adopted son, Bradley Jim Anderson; 11 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; brothers, Lindbergh, Gary (Juanita) and Don (Cathy) Anderson; sisters, Joyce Nell Edwards and Sue (Richard) Atteberry; numerous nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
Funeral services will be conducted 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at Haysi Funeral Home with Les Ketron officiating. Burial will follow in the Anderson Cemetery, Birchleaf, VA.

Just heard of Banners passing. Our sympathy to Ival, Banners family and friends. We always looked forward to seeing him during the summer when we came up from Alabama for VBS at the Bartlick church. We will always remember that smile, his music, conversations, that little dance and jump he would do and that magic piece of candy that would appear in his hand. Thanks Banner for the joyful memories and smiles. We know you are where you want to be and would not come back but we will miss you until we meet again. Thanks for everything my brother.
