Anderson, Rodney
Rodney Cecil Anderson

Peacefully in Picton
Husband of the late Margaret, father of Brian (Arlene) of Vancouver and the late Jim (Wendy) of Picton, grandfather of Jessica, Brent, Natalie and Rachel, brother of the late Ed (Aida), Les (Helen), the late Dorothy (Ken) Brown and Pat (Charlie) Tomlin, brother-in-law of Donald (Betty) Southwick, Lorraine Southwick and Dorothy (Joe) Babiak, and uncle to many nieces and nephews. Born in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario on October 4, 1919 and raised in Nipissing Junction, as a young man, Rod rode the rails and worked in mines and construction camps across Northern Ontario.  He enlisted in the Canadian Army in 1939 and was a radio operator in the R.C.H.A. First Canadian Division in Sicily, Italy, Holland and Germany until 1945. Rod enjoyed working with his hands and built a cottage in Lake Simcoe, a house in Scarborough and his dream home on Lake Ontario in Wellington.  He was an avid reader of history, a gardener and grower of apples.


A family memorial will be held at a later date. 
Rod?s family wishes to thank the staff at Hallowell House for
their compassion and excellent care. 
The family would appreciate donations in Rod?s memory to the
Wellington Library, Box 370, Wellington, ON   K0K 3L0.
