Walter Richard "Jaye" Anderson, a life long resident of Las Vegas, Nevada, was killed by a drunk driver on June 5, 2021. Jaye was 58 years old, a son, brother, father and grandfather. He was on his way home from work when he was struck from behind by a Lamborghini going over 140 miles per hour "Joyriding" on their way to a party.

Jaye was born on March 6, 1963 in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He moved with his family to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1977. This is where Jaye made his home. Jaye was a Chef. He loved to cook all types of food for his family and friends. Jaye was the most happy making dinners for his mother Frances. He was currently working for Denny's. Jaye was a big hearted man that made his way through life on his own. He worked for everything and every penny he had. Jaye did not have much but what he did have he would give to you if you were in need. Jaye loved all, he had his pride and joy snake Rosie, two turtles, and a water dragon along with two cats. Jaye was a very hard worker, there was never a time that he did not work. He started when he was 16 years old and never stopped. He was working hard to mend his relationship with his oldest son Ryan Anderson when he was killed. He wanted to meet his grand babies and now he never will. He was struck from behind on his moped on June 6, 2021 at 11:50 PM on his way home from work. When the Lamborghini, going over 100 miles per hour over the posted speed limit of 45 hit him. Jaye's moped was lodged under the right front of the car that caused the driver to have to pull over 3/4 of a block later. The man driving and passenger walked away with not a scratch. My brother Jaye was killed instantly. We are having a Celebration of Life in honor of my Brother on June 26, 2021 at 6:30 pm at the Lone Mountain Regional Park, 9825 W.
