Obituary for John "Red" Edward Anderson

John “ Red” Anderson passed away July 22, 2019. He built his home and re-
sided in Crescent City since 1993. He was born in Santa Barbara, California April 24,
1931, to Leah G. (née Young) and John L. Anderson, a first- generation Scot.

John “Red” had many high- lights in his life. He served in the US Navy during the
Korean Conflict, he enjoyed mentoring young people, coaching at the Goleta Boys
Club, and being involved in his children’s sports and activities. His passion for building and creating opened many doors to his expansive construction career; Ray Croc’s Ronald McDonald Ranch for Children, University of Virginia Hospital, Merrill Lynch World Financial Trade Center in New York City, and so many others. His spare time was filled with sailing, camping, inventing new ways to use old things, and woodworking.

The family would like to thank the loving staff at Crescent City Skilled Nursing that
cared for him.

He is survived by his wife Margaret Rose Anderson of Crescent City, daughter and
son-in-law Cheryl and David Clarke of Montana, son and daughter in law Eric and
Page Anderson of Maryland, brother Edwin E. Anderson of Satley, CA, 7 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, nephews Larry Anderson, Michael Soares, David Lopez, and Mark Lopez. Nieces Tammy Marquez, Lisa Garatie, and Michelle DuFours, plus many more family and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his sister Jesse G. Betzer, and his nephews Kevin Anderson and Michael Lopez.

A celebration of life will be held August 3, 2019 at Restaurant Root 246, 420 Alisal Road, Solvang, CA 11:00-2:00. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Crescent City Skilled Nursing (memo Activities).
