Glenn L. Trowbridge Anderson passed away at the VA Hospital in Reno, Nev., Wednesday, April 13 at the age of 83. Anderson was born Jan. 21, 1928 to Pansy (Hagel) and Warren Trowbridge in Oregon. After his mother Pansy died giving birth to a daughter when he was about 5-years-old, Glenn was adopted by his aunt Violet M. "Peggy" (Hagel) and Charles "Ira" Anderson and went to live on the Anderson Ranch on the Madeline Plains in Northeastern California. There he grew up, learning a variety of useful skills from Ira, his grandfather August Anderson, and uncles including Elmer Anderson who married Peggy's younger sister, Sarah Ethel (Hagel) Anderson.
Glenn told many stories about growing up on the Madeline Plains, and playing with his cousins Marguerite "Posie" (Anderson) Edwards and Iris (Anderson) Davie.
Glenn served in the Korean War. After the war, he returned to Susanville. He helped his mother operate Rocky Crest Mobile Home Park and also worked for Deal & Davie, Inc. among other jobs.
He was a devout Christian and loved to play the bass fiddle and piano. In later years, he drove the Senior Citizens "meals on wheels" van. Glenn shared a home with extended family A.R. and Chris Danes and their children, Adam and Autumn.
Survivors include his cousin, Nicky DeVose, Bruce Davie, Doug Davie and Sally Edwards.
Memorial services will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 30 at the Southern Baptist Church on the corner of Alexander Avenue and Cornell Street. Internment will be in the Lassen Cemetery on Chestnut Street
