Melanie (Marc), Kelly (Mark), Larry (Dana), grandchildren Stephanie (Melvin), Megan (Lawrence), Madison, Brodie (Trin), Taylor (Matt), Tara , Dayton, and great grandchildren Nicholas and Amanda.
Our family wishes to express our sincere thanks to the exceptional care given by the entire staff at Zion Park Manor in Cloverdale BC. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Zion Park Manor’s Clover Terrace, or to the BC Cancer Foundation in memory of Melvin Anderson.
