Gary T Anderson

On November 26, 2021 Gary T Anderson made his final journey. Stopping off at the Rainbow Bridge he gathered his beloved dogs to reach his final destination. He was preceded in death by his parents Floyd and Nita Anderson, also his sister Vicki Rodriguez.

He was born in Missoula, MT in 1942. He attended the University of Montana where he majored in business. He was also a Sigma Nu fraternity brother. Gary had many varied interests in life. He spent many years in the retail business. His FUN activities were many. He did the rodeo circuit where he rode bulls, broncos, and was even a clown with the bull torn clown pants to prove it. He was an avid. water skier and snow skier where he was on ski patrol. He was also a smoke jumper. The man was not afraid of danger. His biggest joy in life was his home up on Flathead Lake. He captained the SS Fuddpucker many times. Always afloat with his many friends and loved ones. Trouble and fun were always nearby. Gary is survived by the love of his life, Linda Besel. Also his beloved daughter, Tori Gregory, beautiful step daughter Jamie Ophus,and step son Brian Besel, numerous nephews, nieces, and cousins. Gary will be missed by many. His smile and welcoming nature is a true loss for family and friends.

"Gary and John have fun, but PLEASE stay out of trouble!"

Per his request there will be no services.

So sorry to hear of Gary's passing. Will always have great memories of the waterfront fun. Rides on the Fudd and of course many dinners.

Will always be a big void left in our Sentinel (MCHS) Class of 1960, but you will be remembered and loved for the joy you brought to others. So many wonderful, fun high school, college, and reunion memories shared with Gary. RIP friend. Strength and peace to your family.

Sorry to hear of Gary´s passing. We were in Sigma Nu together (the old house), and though he was senior to me, he went out of his way to make me feel welcome. He was a good man who will be missed.
