Kevin L. Anderson, 50, of Belle Center, Ohio passed away Friday afternoon, September 3, 2021, at Ohio Health Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Kevin was preceded in death by his father Robert E. Anderson.

Kevin was a member of the Belle Center United Methodist Church. He worked most recently at Airstream in Jackson Center, Ohio. His true passion was photography – Kevin loved to support the Benjamin Logan community by capturing treasured moments from games, musical events and senior pictures. He would travel throughout Ohio with his camera to create memories. His red Dodge Ram truck was special to him and he loved to work on it. Kevin was an avid Ohio State fan.
Even in his hospital bed, Kevin was apologetic to his clientele that he would not be able to get to recent athletic games and music events. His son, John will be working to finish any pictures that were taken but not yet sent to customers.
