Obituary for William Gain Anderson

William Gain  Anderson
William Gain Anderson was born in East St. Louis, IL on July 15, 1932 to William Greenbury Anderson and Marie Gain Anderson. He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Sue Hammitt Anderson and daughters Laura Ashton Anderson, Kristin Anderson Deneen (husband Ryan Deneen), and grandchildren Andrew Ryan Deneen and Madeline Claire Deneen. Also surviving are sisters Jean Hutchings and Shirley Green and brother Dale Anderson (Dawn). He was preceded in death by his parents, sister JoAnne Mertens and son Mark William Anderson.

Bill graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1950. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. Louis University in 1954 with a degree in business. He later served on SLU’s Board of Trustees as Chairman of the Audit Committee.

After graduation, Bill served in the U.S. Army during the Korean conflict, stationed at the 5th Army Headquarters in San Francisco, CA. After his discharge from the military, he went to work with Ernst & Ernst (now EY). He had a career of over 35 years beginning as a junior accountant, then becoming a Certified Public Accountant, then advancing to partnership. He also became a member of the firm’s Management Committee.

During those years with Ernst & Young, Bill and Sue lived in several cities, including St. Louis, Wichita and Dallas. After his retirement they returned to St. Louis.

Bill enjoyed the comradeship of friends at the Missouri Athletic Club, the Bogey Club, Old Warson Country Club and the Fare-Well Group who “wheeled and dealed” with their favorite stocks and investments.

Bill and Sue shared for many years their devotion to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital where their young son Mark fought his battle against Leukemia. The heliport at the hospital is dedicated in his memory. Bill also served as President of the Board of Cardinal Glennon.

Visitation Monday 10 am followed by a Funeral Mass at 11 am at Ste. Genevieve du Bois. In lieu of flowers please remember SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital at www.glennon.org or William and Sue Anderson Scholarship Fund at the St. Louis University School of Business, 314-977-2341.
