December 13, 1958 ~ July 16, 2022 (age 63)

Obituary

Rolin (Willie) Anderson was born to the late Raphael and Vicenta Anderson on December 13, 1958 in Mocho Clarendon Jamaica. In 1991 Willie left Jamaica and came to Florida with the hope of making a better life for his two sons he had left behind. After reconnecting with an old friend from the past, they had a long distance relationship until 1995 when he married his wife of 27 years and moved to Boston.  He worked at Whole Foods Market and took on a second job at M.I.T.   In 2001 his hopes of bringing his sons Wacquine and Andrew to the US happened. 
Willie was an easy going, quiet person, he liked to cook for people. His Rum Punch was the talk of the town the day after Boston W.I. Carnival.  Never putting things on hold, when he had something to do he would get it done and out of the way asap. 
He loved his job and got along with his boss and coworkers. His morals shined through him from loving and reading the book of Proverbs.  He would always say to me Renee (Friend) "A soft word turns away wrath" and I would finish with Willie (Froggy) "but a harsh word stirs up anger". He loved his Homeland Jamaica and fulfilled his heart over the years preserving the property where he grew up on for the family.
As so eloquently said by his doctor: Rolin was a delight. His strength and dignity and wisdom never wavered throughout his battle with cancer, and I am certain he couldn't have fought so bravely without your unending support and love"
Willie you are my forever friend, love your wife, your friend.
Willie leaves to cherish in his loving memory his loving wife Renee (Raines) Anderson, his children Wacquine and Andrew. Step daughter Erica Thomas
His sister's Helen, Velma, Gradel, Norva, Sadie and Louise. His brothers (preceeded by James(Boxer), Donald and Calda. He will also be remembered by  his 3 grandchildren of Virginia, nieces, nephews, friends. His two sister in laws Thais Raines and Henrietta (Pooran) Ramkisoon.
