Richard C. “Rick” Anderson, age 75, of Montpelier, Ohio, passed away at 10:57 P.M. on Monday, June 29, 2020, at SKLD – Bryan. Richard had owned a plumbing company in Toledo prior to a long and successful career as a real estate investor. Rick was a charitable member of the community supporting many causes including the Williams County “Blizzard Auction”, Fairlawn Auction at Sauder Village, the Bryan Area Foundation and countless other charities. Rick could build or fix anything from houses to furniture, but his favorite hobby was “wheeling and dealing” anything that could make money. His sense of humor was second to none.
Richard was born on December 30, 1944, in Toledo, Ohio, the son of Gordon F. and Venita R. (Jones) Anderson. He was a graduate of DeVilbiss High School and the University of Toledo.
Richard is survived by his long time companion, Linda Wernet, of Montpelier; her children, Todd Wernet and Troy (Meg) Wernet, both of Columbus; grandchildren, Hayden, Tyler, Tate, Chloe, Reagan and Addison; sister, Pamela Herschel, of Toledo; niece, Meredith (David) Hustwick, of Toledo, nephew, Craig (Melanie) Herschel, of Saline, Michigan and great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.
