HUDSONVILLE, MI (January 12, 2006) – A memorial service for Arvin Anderson, 66, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at First Evangelical Covenant Church. Anderson died Monday following a lingering illness.

Visitation for family and friends will be observed at the Alt & Shawmut Hills Chapel of the Lifestory Funeral Homes from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight, and again from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Friday.
