Floyd Delton Anderson
April 4th 1953 – September 14, 2020
Floyd Delton Anderson was born in Yakima, Washington on April 4th, 1953 to James Robert and Hazel Arlene Anderson. Floyd was the fourth of six children. His family moved from Yakima to Portland, Oregon where he met his future wife, and the love of his life Sharon, in the seventh grade. Floyd and Sharon were married December 10th, 1971 and lived in Portland the rest of his life.
Floyd was a welder by trade, but he defined himself by the relationship he had with his family and the wilderness. Growing up, Floyd and his family spent the vast majority of their leisure time in the Mt. Hood National Forest and riding dirt bikes. Floyd was an avid and accomplished hunter and fisherman. His hunting and fishing trips were important to him because of the time he spent with his family, as well as the four bucks and two bears he brought home. He brought up his children to respect and cherish their family, the wilderness, and his way of life. He loved his grandchildren, and they often accompanied him on many camping trips where he would share his love of the wilderness with those he loved so much.
Floyd is loved, will be missed, and is survived by his loving and devoted wife Sharon, his children Floyd, Christina, and Lawrence, his grandchildren Aaron, Jordyn, and Cole Anderson, and Jordan Heinl, his brother Robert Anderson, and sister Charlene LeVasseur.
Floyd is preceded in death, and will be greeted on the other side by his father James, mother Hazel, his son Joseph, his daughter Brenda, his oldest sister Carolyn Schoenberg, his oldest brother James, and his brother and life-long best friend, Kenneth.
A private memorial service will be held for family and close friends at Floyd and Sharon’s home on October 3rd, 2020. Those attending are asked to remember the life he lived and bring stories to share of their time with Floyd.
