Phillip Morgan Anderson, 62, died Friday, October 29, 2021, at his home. He was born in Danville, Kentucky on July 25, 1959, to the late Donald and Juanita Anderson. He attended Boyle County High School and joined the Navy where he served for six years. Phillip worked at Penn Ventilator for 20 years and retired from Centre College after 17 years of service. Phillip was an avid fisherman and had a love of nature that will forever be passed on to his children and grandchildren. The riverbank was where his soul was most at peace.
