Arnie Anderson

December 2, 1949 - April 16, 2014

Tribute

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend and co-worker Arnie Anderson on April 16, 2014.
Arnie was born December 2, 1949 in Trail BC, the 9th child to Clarence and Hazel Anderson. Early in his childhood the family moved to the Canex Mine home site where with fond memories Arnie and his siblings and friends were free to grow up, run and play surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains.
After graduating from high school in Salmo, Arnie moved to Calgary to work but his heart pulled him back to Salmo where he settled in and went to college and started to raise his family. He pursued and received his carpenter journeyman ticket and set his work career in motion working at 7 mile dam, Kootenay Lake School District and then in 1976 started at Fortis BC where he spent the remainder of his 34 year career working at the dams on the Kootenay river near South Slocan. The last 12 of the 34 years Arnie spent as Safety Coordinator still working out of the same office.
Other than spending time with his family and friends Arnie passionately loved riding his Harley (He rode like no other), fishing the river and working in his shop.
Arnie is survived by his wife Jan, children Mark and Kelly (Lee), step daughter Nichole (Landon) and Jan's son Brent (Teresa), his grandchildren Ethan, Lily, Alex, Mathew, Dallas, Aaron, Roman and Silas. His brothers and sisters, Jim (Marie), Dolly, Marge, Jean, Ken (Germaine), Carol (Dennis), Roy (Diana), Keith and Joyce (Mike), and mother and father in-law Glen and Marian.  As well as many sister-in-laws and brother in-laws, many nieces and nephews and his faithful companion AJ.
Arnie was predeceased by his parents and brothers Ed, Norman and his sister Irene.
Dear Arnie we love you and miss you so much.
The family would like to thank Dr. Malpass, Dr. Bridger the Home care workers, nurses and Kootenay Lake Hospital for the kind and compassionate care.

Arnie was a wonderful person. My husband grew up at Canex with the Anderson kids and I went to school with Arnie in Salmo. I have many fond memories of Arnie and some of the stunts he would pull. We are very sad, he left this life to young. Our hearts and deepest sympathy are with the family…Ron and Denelda
