Morris "Bud" Daniel Anderson passed away from complications of COPD on Nov. 8, 2017. He was 67 years old.
Bud had an active life that he lived on his own terms. He spent time all over the fishing districts of Alaska, from Hoonah to Sand Point to Bristol Bay and the waters surrounding Kodiak. When he wasn't out catching fish, he could be found with his cup of coffee and the morning newspaper, eagerly awaiting a debate with an unsuspecting bar patron.
Bud became a resident of Kodiak, Alaska, at 17, graduated from Kodiak High School and was drafted into the Vietnam War. He returned with new political views that he shared the rest of his life. While a great deal of his life was spent on the deck of a boat, or spotting fish from his airplane, he kept in touch with his family and friends whenever possible. While surveying for herring, more than one person received an airdrop of a pound of coffee with a wing wave.
Bud is predeceased by his parents, Morris Daniel and Eleanor (Rudiger) Anderson; and his youngest sister, Rebecca. He is survived by sisters, Patricia Anderson Blevens and Cindy Anderson and husband Gerald Bee. He has numerous nieces and nephews that will remember his favorite celebration of Halloween, when he came to town to take them trick-or-treating.
Bud's family would like to thank and honor the professional and caring staff of the Chiniak Bay Elder House, especially for the Hospice team of Kathy Nussbaum and Dr. Chelmo and volunteers.
We would like to thank Bud's Kodiak friends for their love and kindness.
A celebration of Bud's Big Wild Life will be held in the spring, when the rowdy fishermen and women can toast a life well lived.
