Bill Anderson, 80, of Ramona, passed away peacefully at his home on October 18, 2012, with his wife and family by his side. Bill was born in New Castle, PA, on February 11, 1932, to Edward and Vemetta Anderson. He was a long time resident of Ramona. |
Bill was an Eagle Scout and graduated from Ramona High in 1950. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1952.
Bill met the love of his life, Norma Jean Leigh, in December 1953. They were married on May 23, 1954, and celebrated their 58th Wedding Anniversary last May. Bill worked as a truck driver until retirement. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and Scottish Rite Temple. In recent years he loved working on his model trains.
He is sadly missed by his loving wife, Norma; their three children, Phyllis (Bill) Kelly, Edward Anderson and Lori Anderson (Randy); sister, Patricia Stangl; 14 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; sister in law, Nancy Moore; and a niece and two nephews.
He was the best husband, father, grandfather, and friend anyone could ask for! He had an infectious smile that brought joy to all those who were blessed to have met him. We shall greatly miss him, but Heaven is a better place for his going.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2012, at 2pm at the home of his son, Ed.
