Memorial for Richard Anderson Sr.
SPACE AND ROCKET CITY AUTO SALES WAS STARTED IN 2010 BY ITS CEO RICHARD ANDERSON. A native of Huntsville born in this wonderful city known as the Space and Rocket Capital of the World, He took the name as a symbol of his pride at the accomplishments he has seen from living here over 50 years.
With both of his parents and grandparents raised here in the valley his roots date back to the 1890’s and earlier. Richard's father (Richard Anderson Sr) instilled in him very young the values of treating people fairly and honestly in every situation. His life's work as a Police Captain with HPD and a second career of service as a 35 year pastor with New Salem Baptist Church was a strong example for his son to learn from.
Richard Anderson II embarked on his career with the same core values giving many years of his life to the Madison Country Sheriff's department as a deputy and DARE officer. When he entered the private sector, he wanted to serve again with a business that takes pride in helping people who have difficulties trusting and buying a used automobile.
