Island native Elmer Donald Anderson, 91, died at Martha and Mary Nursing Home in Poulsbo.
He was born at Port Blakely on Bainbridge Island. He attended the Port Blakely school as a child, and Toe Jam Hill was his playground.
He worked at the Winslow Shipyard during World War II, and for many years at the South Beach Country Club as the caretaker until his retirement in the 1980s.
He had an excellent memory and liked sharing stories of Port Blakely. He was interviewed several times by the historical society. He enjoyed "tinkering" and always had a project to work on.
He spent his whole life in the family home at Port Blakely until a few years ago, when he moved to Liberty Shores retirement home and then Martha and Mary until his death.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Howard.
He is survived by his cousins, Bernice Bradley of Seattle, Bill (Sue) Minster of Seattle, and Larry Minster of Hansville.
A graveside service was held in the spring, with interment among other family members at Port Blakely Cemetery.
