    Interment of his cremains will be in South Bend, Ind.

David John Anderson, 86

Sept. 29, 2015

Interment of his cremains will be in South Bend, Ind.

Inter­ment of his cre­mains will be in South Bend, Ind.

David John Ander­son, 86, of Engle­wood, Fla., for­merly of South Bend, Ind., passed away Tues­day, Sept. 29, 2015, at Engle­wood Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal with his fam­ily at his side.

Born Dec. 5, 1928, in Home­stead, Pa., he made Engle­wood his home last year after win­ter­ing here for 20 years. He retired as vice pres­i­dent of inter­na­tional sales at LECO Cor­po­ra­tion in St. Joseph, Mich.

Dave served in the US Army. He was a mem­ber of Com­mu­nity Pres­by­ter­ian Church.

Sur­vivors included his beloved wife of 61 years, Syd­ney Lee Ander­son of Engle­wood; three daugh­ters: Kathy Stark of Colum­bus, Ohio, Sally Zim­merle of Granger, Ind., and Betsy Ander­son of Hawaii; and eight grandchildren.

The sto­ries of world trav­els, adven­tures sail­ing on his boat “Charisma” and play­ing golf blind will be shared for­ever. His smile, warmth, sense of humor and quick wit will be missed, but live in our hearts always.

Inter­ment of his cre­mains will be in South Bend, Ind.

Engle­wood Com­mu­nity Funeral Home has been selected to han­dle arrange­ments. You may share a mem­ory with the fam­ily at www.englewoodfh.com
