William Anderson Obituary

William Paul Anderson

FRIENDSWOOD - Will was born in Sugar Land on November 25, 2002 - 2 minutes before his twin brother, Grant. Will was a blessing to the lives he touched through community involvement. While in high school, Will volunteered at Three Little Pitties dog rescue in Friendswood, helping to get dogs ready for transport to their new homes. He loved animals, especially dogs and cows. He worked on his grandparents’ dairy farm, milking and feeding the cows. He attended Friendswood Methodist Church. He became involved in community outreach through UM Army, building ramps for those confined to a wheelchair in underserved communities. He attended Kingdom Youth Group and served as camp counselor at the church summer camp. Will loved helping others. He worked along with other church members in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, removing water-damaged carpet and sheet rock from damaged homes. He was a dedicated player in Lacrosse and Track and received his diploma from Friendswood High School in 2021. Growing up he gave his time to many who needed help and even in his passing, he gave his organs to those who needed it. He was a young man who made his family proud, and we will always cherish the short time we shared him with God.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Carole Giamalva; grandfather, Paul Anderson, Sr.
