Terry ‘Allen’ Anderson, 54, a resident of Concrete, WA passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at his home.
He was born on December 17, 1963 in Torrance, California the son of Floyd and Virginia Anderson. Terry we all called him Allen, got a rough start in life, he was born premature at barely 7 months, and he stayed in the hospital for his first month or so. You’d never have known that by looking at the strong tall burly man he became.
Grown up Allen was a member of Future Farmers of America as a teen.
Allen spent some time in the Navy. Then moved permanently to Oak Harbor, Washington where he got hired on as a civil service employee at Whidbey Naval air station. He functioned in many roles, but the longest was as a groundskeeper there, where the ballfields and landscaped areas never looked better.
He was not afraid to try new things and loved adventure. He was always thinking of new ways to do and reinvent things. No task was too big for him, especially with his love of tools of all kinds, and building things. Allen helped his parents and others on many large and small projects over the years.
He was a loner, but loved his family. He enjoyed his ATV, outdoor activities like mining, gold panning, travel, boating and fishing.
Allen is survived by his father, Floyd Anderson; sister, Sandy Popa; nephew, Bryant Pierson; niece, Geneva Blackmer. He is preceded in death by his mother, Virginia Anderson.
He will be missed very much by those who knew, loved and cared about him. Per Allen’s wishes there will be no service.
