Anderson, who was Winholt’s senior regional sales manager, died April 24. He was 71.

Winholt noted that Anderson was an important part of its team.

“It showed in the relationships he built with his customers, many who became his friends, and amongst his colleagues and friends throughout the industry,” the statement continues. “Over the years, he was instrumental in contributing to the growth of the company and we will be forever grateful for all of his dedication and hard work. John will never be forgotten and will be greatly missed.”

Anderson is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Catherine Anderson; his sons Michael Anderson (Nichole) and Sean Anderson (Karin); his grandchildren Mikala, Ryan, Maxwell and Ali Josephine Anderson; his sisters Denise Curren and Christine Anderson; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family members, according to his obituary.
