David Dwayne "Wayne" Anderson
David Dwayne "Wayne" Anderson, born on June 16, 1964, in Anchorage, Alaska, went
to be with his Lord last week in Wasilla, Alaska.
Wayne loved his God, his Savior
Jesus Christ, his children, his family and Alaska. He graduated from Abbott Loop
Christian High School and graduated from University of Alaska Anchorage with a
degree in business. While in high school he excelled in cross country, track and
basketball with his brother, Jim. In his senior year he participated in the
Arctic Winter Games in Fairbanks, Alaska. He enjoyed mountain biking the
Resurrection Pass with Jim and friends, John and Kevin Anderson, snow machining
with Brian Rounds, riding four wheelers, jet skiing and tubing at Big Lake with
his children, nephews and nieces, hunting at Igiugig with his father and
visiting his grandparents. At age 14, he began his working career at McDonald's,
later working as a crabber, set netter and ending his professional career as a
top rep for several pharmaceutical companies. He was kind and tenderhearted. He
had a way with people, especially seniors, making them feel important and
special and listening to their stories. When he walked into a room of strangers,
he left with a room full of friends. He liked hot sauce, bacon sandwiches and
pink peppermint candies. His hands and heart were always warm.
He is survived by Terrie
Gulbranson Anderson, mother of their three children: Justine, Grant, and
Vincent, all of Anchorage. He is also survived by his parents, David and Marilyn
Anderson; his brother, Jim (Erika) Anderson and children, Connor, Gavin and
Chase; his sister, Merrilee (Lee) Rohwer and children, Collin, Tori and Rachel,
of Anchorage; and his sister Judy (Greg) Taylor and children Lyndsy, and Jordyn
of Friday Harbor, Wash.; and many friends. "God be with you til we meet again."
- Romans 8:38-39
