David Anderson, 71, a retired computer systems manager died Tuesday, the 26th of March 2013. He was born November 16, 1941, in Carmel and was a lifelong resident of the Monterey Peninsula.

After graduating from high school in 1959, Dave served in the Navy as a Radioman/Cryptographer aboard various ships and took part in the 1962 nuclear testing on Christmas Island in the Pacific.

After an honorable discharge in 1963, Dave worked for NCR for more than 15 years as a technical service representative in Monterey County, maintaining and repairing many types of retail and business machines and computers. He installed and maintained the first ATM on the central coast.

Dave joined The Salinas Californian in 1978 and was instrumental in installing their first mainframe computer system for news production and classified adtaking.
