William "Bill" Grady Anderson, 75, of Akron, Ohio, passed away peacefully on September 18, 2022 with his wife by his side. Bill was a wonderful husband and father. Bill worked in construction and project management for over 40 years. His hobbies included woodworking, fishing and coin collecting. Even as his health declined over the past few years, coin collecting was still a hobby he enjoyed sharing with his children and grandchildren especially. He loved listening to Elvis Presley, Milich's Village Inn chicken, using huge magnifying glasses because he could never see well enough and watching old western movies. But the thing he loved most of all was spending time with his family and being a grandpa. Bill is preceded in death by his parents Henry & Catherine Anderson; brothers Bernie and Bob Anderson, and grandson Richard "Diesel" Simon III. He is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Melanie (nee Hoover) Anderson; children, William (Liz) Anderson, Michelle Simon, Jeremy (Tracy) Anderson Schundelmire, Megan (Carlin) Culbertson, and Marnie (Ryan) Burke; 12 grandchildren and one great grandson; siblings, Bea (Dick) Lamont, Barbara (AJ) Vasaris and Beverly Anderson.
