From Renee Anderson: My husband Jeff Anderson passed away on October 1st at 8 a.m. and I am broken. He was hurting inside with not being able to play or see his mother who’s 89. He started drinking fireball and he ended up in kidney and liver failure. It’s a family disease as I spoke with his nephew Jakob and it’s in the family – his dad and others
From Scotty Brown on Facebook, 10/01/20: This is definitely a tough one to swallow, my bruuuuttthhhaaa from another mother, Jeff Anderson, my friend, I will love you forever. Thank you for all the awesome memories of the times we spent together, whether it was playing music or playing golf or whatever it was, it was always a great time with you. Fly with the angels tonight and always, my dear friend. I’ll miss you….
Jonathan Jonah: I talked to Jeff just a few days ago. I’m in shock! Sending love and prayers your way, Renee. I’m so, so sorry for your loss. He was such a sweetheart of a man with a heart of gold. I’m at a total loss for words.

Other Notable Musicians’ Deaths…
Too many of these deaths are from SUICIDE. If you are contemplating taking your own life because “things just aren’t going right,” wait until after midnight. Play Cinderella. Look at how her life changed by waiting a few days. Don’t die which is so irreversible. Someone who loves you very much will be in pain for the rest of their lives. Think of them, too.
The deaths that are listed from Wikipedia are those of musicians or those persons who have ties to the music business from all over the world. These are our brothers and sisters. Say a prayer for their souls. They will be missed greatly.
