Myron Alfred “Andy” Anderson, 85, of Oakdale, CA, passed away suddenly on March 11, 2021, at his cabin in Camp Connell, CA.
Andy was a Ceres native and graduated Ceres High School in 1953. He wore many hats over the years which included working for the U.S. Postal Service, Valley Industrial Laundry, rancher, grape, and almond farmer, along with many years with Durotest Light Corp. His moniker was the “Liteman”. He was still working part time in this capacity and looking forward to officially retiring the Liteman on his upcoming birthday.
Andy belonged to many service groups and sportsmen’s clubs which included the Ceres Lions Club, Old Fisherman’s Club, Oakdale Sportsman’s Club, Escalon Sportsman’s Club, and worked as a volunteer for many of their fundraising events. He loved working the Ceres Street Fair, collecting money for parking at the Stanislaus County Fair or working at the Old Fisherman’s Club. Andy also attended Community Christian Reformed Church in Oakdale.
He enjoyed fishing, hunting, watching his San Francisco 49ers, SF Giants and NASCAR racing. He rarely turned down an invitation to go fishing or for good BBQ, especially if pork ribs were on the menu. His favorite fishing companions were whomever he was fishing with on that day. Most of all, he enjoyed time spent at his cabin and called the area, “Andy’s Mountains”.
Andy is survived by his wife, Marjorie Anderson; daughters, Kathy (Roger) Morgan, Karen Anderson, Kris (Jim) Rebiero; son, Ken (Tami) Anderson and stepchildren, Licia (Robert) Green, Jim (Kristine) Hoover, Michelle Hoover, and a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren. He leaves behind his sister Joyce (Jim) Small and brother, Loren Anderson.
He is preceded in death by his parents Myron and Olive Anderson; sister, Cleopal Walker; and daughter, Karla Harrod.
A private family service will be held March 26 at Ceres Memorial Park with a Celebration of Life Memorial Service to be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Ceres Lions Club.
