County coroner recovering from stroke
Marshall County coroner James Richard Anderson is in the hospital at Baptist East in Memphis, Tenn., recovering from a stroke, according to his father, Eugene Anderson.
The coroner became noticeably ill Wednesday, Oct. 20, when he drove out to the ambulance service on Highway 178 in Holly Springs to visit a friend around 8:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., according to Anderson.
“His friend came outside and saw him sitting in his truck shaking,” he said. “His friend closed the truck door and went inside to get help.”
The coroner was taken first to Alliance HealthCare System then airlifted to Baptist East, his father said. He remained in Intensive Care until Saturday when he was transferred out of Intensive Care.
“People are praying for him and pastors are visiting him,” Anderson said.
The coroner was in stable condition Monday while physicians continue to run tests to assess his condition, Anderson said.
Deputy coroner John Garrison will take over the coroner’s duties while he is out, said Chuck Thomas, chancery clerk.
“I feel like coroners in surrounding counties would step up if there is a big emergency,” Thomas said.
