Allan Albert Anderson left us on December 21,2023. He was born on September 28, 1949 and was 74 years old. Allen leaves behind his wife of 52 years Jane, a daughter Heather and son-in-law Paul Wakin and four grandchildren. Isaiah, Amerah, Aleiah and Micah and his dog Porter. He loved his family very much.
Allan grew up in Tigard, Oregon, graduated high school in 1969 and went to Portland Community and Chemeketa Community Colleges. He was a volunteer fire fighter and an EMT for Aumsville and Marion County. He worked as a maintenance carpenter for Salem Keizer School District for 25 years.
He was a man of many talents. He could build and fix so many things. In2011 and 2012 he rode his bike across the country. The first summer he made it North Dakota and the weather was bad. He came home and then in 2012 finished the trip ending in Maine. He loved the outdoors and traveling. His faith was a big part of his life too.
He went into Hospice care in February of 2023. Willamette Vital Health was wonderful in helping me take care of him. We will miss him in our lives so much.
