NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BNc) — Kerry Anderson, president of the Gospel Advocate company, was found dead at his home the night of Aug. 13, Greg Tidwell, editor of Gospel Advocate magazine, announced yesterday.

He was 52 and died of natural causes, according to Spring Meadows minister Dale Jenkins.

No further details are available at this time.

“Kerry was dedicated Christian, a gifted song leader, and a leader among our brethren. He was bright, funny, and full of wit. He showed much wisdom and was gifted at finding solutions to publishing problems. GA was among the first publishers in America to use the technology of the lightning press, which could produce a few hundred books in a very short period of time. I’m sure Kerry had a lot to do with that,”  Search for Truth speaker Phil Sanders said.

“I will miss Kerry greatly. Our last contact was on a project to produce a wonderful tool that would bless the brotherhood. We were not able to put all the pieces together, but his help and advice were priceless. The day will come when we will pursue this opportunity. I counted Kerry as a great friend and ally,” Phil said.

Please keep the Anderson family in your prayers.
