Canon Bill Anderson died peacefully yesterday in Edinburgh on the vigil of the Epiphany and the day before his 87th Birthday.
Originally ordained for the Archdiocese of Edinburgh, he was incardinated into the Diocese of Aberdeen in 1991 after many years of teaching at Blairs College.
A gracious, erudite and sensitive priest, he inspired much affection and respect and helped many on their journeys through life.
May he reap his reward and rest in peace.
Funeral details will follow.
+ Bishop Hugh Gilbert
