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
