Anderson, Walter  
Walter L. Anderson Walter Lee Anderson, age 87, died on May 15, 2015 in the Fort Hudson Nursing Center with his wife of 68 years, Virginia, holding his hand and family members gathered around. Walter faced the indignities of Parkinson's disease with great strength and grace. His wife, sons David (Patricia) and Peter (Lorrie), grandchildren Kristin (Kevin) and Eric (Natasha) and great-grandchildren Laila and Levi survive him. Most of Walter's life was spent in the Town of La Grange, NY. He owned and operated a highly successful automobile repair shop on Noxon Road. He was known for his skill, honesty and integrity. During his career he served as a mentor and teacher for many young people. He made time for his community volunteering in the fire department, sponsoring Little League teams, guiding young people as a Scoutmaster and serving as deacon and elder in the Freedom Plains Presbyterian Church. Walter's interests included all things mechanical and he could repair almost anything. Playing the harmonica and creating handcrafted copper art were among his creative outlets that provided pleasure to others. He especially enjoyed his boats and time with the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club exploring the Hudson River and the eastern seaboard. After moving to Queensbury, NY in 2001, Walter enjoyed participating in Cooper's Cave Auto Enthusiast Club activities. He took great pleasure in displaying the 1929 Model A Ford he built from spare parts when he and Virginia were first married. The family is grateful to the entire staff at the Fort Hudson Nursing Center for caring for Walter and supporting Virginia. Everyone was sensitive to their needs and concerned for their well-being. No memorial service is planned. Those wishing to honor Walter's memory are invited to follow his example of treating all people with respect and kindness and being of good cheer. If you choose to make a donation in his name, please consider The Fort Hudson Foundation, 319 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY 12828 or The Redeemer Reformed Presbyterian Church, 548 Luzerne Road, Queensbury, NY 12804.
