Mr. Donald Peterson Anderson was born on January 7, 1959, in Dublin, Georgia, loving son of the late Tommie and Rosetta Anderson. "Duck" was a man of great wisdom and knowledge. He was loved by many and known to uphold honor and truth in everything he did. During his early years, he was a member of the Green Grove Baptist Church. After graduating from Dublin High School in 1977, he served in the United States Navy for four years. Once he returned, he obtained his associates degree in Journalism from the Atlanta Area Technical College, and shortly thereafter, he continued his studies at Georgia State University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in 1984. Naturally gifted with words, Mr. Anderson entered the workforce, and was employed at the finance department at the Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, where he managed the company's budget. Later, he was employed at the Internal Revenue Service as an instructor in the Wage and Investment Department. Once his mother became ill, Mr. Anderson decided to leave the work force and returned to care for her. During his later years, he devoted most of his time to his writing. Driven by truth, honor, and knowledge, he never stopped learning. He passed away on March 12, 2019.
