Clyde Lee Anderson Jr.
Touched our hearts as a dedicated son, loyal friend, wonderful brother, and gentle father-figure. Clyde Lee Anderson Jr. was born June 24, 1951 to Clyde Lee Anderson Sr. and Shirley Rae Gee. He was a long term resident of Rialto, California and graduated from Eisenhower High in 1969. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science from UCR and was a chemist for the California State Department of Water Resources in Castaic for 15 Years. He returned to Rialto and obtained a Bachelors degree in Chemistry from Cal State San Bernardino. He got his Master's degree in 1995 from Cal Poly Pomona and was a lecturer there for 12 years. He also taught at Mt. SAC. He retired early because of his great love for his father who needed his care. He is survived by his papa: Clyde Lee Anderson Sr., his two brothers: Stephen G. Anderson (with wife Toni & sons Jesse, Jason, and Jaron Duke) and David A. Anderson (with wife Michelle & daughter). Clyde Jr. also counted as his family: Friends Rob & Lety Peterson; Xavier and Adrianna Quintanar and children Annelise, Faith, Isaac, and Xavier Jr.; and Eduardo Quintanar and Family. He was our Santa Claus. He was the greatest example of love, service, and generosity. He asked naught for himself but was happy just to bring smiles to others.
