AQHA World Championship Show veterinarian Glenn F. “Andy” Anderson III passed away on October 21, 2019, after a courageous battle with brain cancer.
Dr. Anderson was born May 12, 1949, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He began his life in Tulsa, but his family moved to Broken Arrow at the age of 9. He lived on the Bent Arrow Ranch where he cultivated his deep love for horses. He attended Broken Arrow High School and graduated with the class of 1967. He went on to attend Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, and graduated with the class of 1971. After college, he was accepted into veterinary school at Oklahoma State University. He graduated first in the Class of 1975 and accepted an internship in Littleton, Colorado. He returned to Broken Arrow to open Equine Veterinary Associates, where he practiced veterinary medicine at the top of his field for 40 years. He taught many young people the fine art of equine medicine and his legacy lives on in the work of many veterinarians across the country.
Dr. Anderson was preceded in death by his parents, G.F. “Jack” Anderson Jr. and Genelle Anderson and his son, David Anderson. He is survived by his wife of nearly 46 years, Carol Anderson; daughters, Kimberly Huckaby and Kelli Anderson; son-in-law, Eric Huckaby; sister, Rebecca Mitchell; brother, George Anderson and sister-in-law, Mary Anderson; and granddaughters, Ella, Lilly and Andi Grace.
