F. Elton ANDERSON

F. ELTON (ANDY) ANDERSON, 89

Elton Anderson of Kelowna, B.C. passed away December 21, 2015 at Kelowna General Hospital. Born June 17, 1926 in Hamilton, Ontario to Alec and Evelyn

Anderson, he was raised in London, Ontario, where he attended South Collegiate. He lived most of his adult life in the Toronto area before moving

to Lake Country in 2002 and then Kelowna in 2012. In 1947 Elton began a long career with Beneficial Finance. At his

retirement in 1989, he was Secretary Treasurer of the company.  Elton loved to spend time with family and friends. He was a caring husband, father and grandfather, who loved Big Band music, singing, dancing, and playing the

harmonica, fishing, camping, and especially, playing bridge. The residents of Sandalwood Retirement Resort can attest to his winning ways!  Elton’s dry sense of humour is

legendary and he loved a good laugh. Elton was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He spent many

volunteer years in the Kinsmen Club, serving on the executive both locally and nationally.  Elton is survived

by his loving wife of 67 years, Connie; daughters Kathy Lye (Jim) of Toronto, Janet Anderson (Douglas MacLeod) of Lake Country, Nancy Anderson of Burnaby and Susan Anderson (Jason McKay) of Calgary; grandchildren Heather and Joanne Lye, Jessica and Jaime Skinner, Amy

Boudreau, Jack MacLeod and Dylan Joyce; sister Joan Rowe of London; sisters-in-law Joan MacDougall and Peggy Harvey (Russell); and many loving nieces, nephews and other relatives. His daughter Karen Anderson and

son-in-law Malcolm Skinner predeceased him. Funeral service will be held at The Cathedral Church of St. Michael and All Angels in Kelowna on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at 2:00 pm. Burial in Oyama Cemetery will occur at a later date.  If desired, donations in Elton’s memory may be made to Canadian Cancer Society,

565 West 10th Ave., Vancouver, BC V5Z 4J4
