Ralph Anderson

November 5, 1928-July 20, 2012

Ralph Anderson passed away peacefully at Campbell River General Hospital on July 20, 2012, at the age of 83. Ralph was born in Bangor, Saskatchewan on November 5, 1928 to Otto and Signe Anderson, and was the seventh child of a family of nine.

Ralph was predeceased by his first wife, Kari in 2004 and second wife, Barbara in 2007.

He is lovingly remembered by his six children and spouses: Sharon Jacklin, who has six children and seven grandchildren; Leslie Montgomery (husband Rick); William Anderson (wife Linda), who has two children and one grandchild; Bruce Anderson (wife Holly), who has two children; Verna Jarvis (husband Jim), who has one child; and Larry Anderson (wife Kim). Ralph also has step-children: Michael Beaton (deceased), Kathy Allen (deceased), who has one child, Gordon Beaton (wife Janine), who has three children, and David Beaton.

Ralph will be remembered by his many friends and family as someone who was always friendly, fair and whose greatest wish was that everyone could get along. He loved listening to and playing old time music on his banjo and guitar. His other interests included camping, hiking, playing crib and assorted board games with anyone who was willing to play. His grandchildren will fondly remember going to garage sales with their grandpa!

Donations can be made in Ralph’s memory to the SPCA, Campbell River Hospice or a charity of your choice.
