Darrel Wayne Anderson was born March 26, 1936, to Charles and Mamie (Hall) Anderson in Crossroads, Mo. Mr. Anderson came from a family of 11 children.
He attended schools as a child in the Sparta-Chadwick area in Missouri.
Once out of school, Mr. Anderson enlisted in the United States Air Force. On Oct. 26, 1955, in Yakima, Wash., Darrel W. Anderson married Betty Jean Hess, with whom he shared 47 wonderful years of marriage.
Together they started their family and traveled to wherever Mr. Anderson was stationed. He was stationed in Othello, Wash.; Inchon, South Korea; Harlington, Texas; Fairbanks, Alaska; and Whiteman Air Force Base. He was then honorably discharged from the military and moved his family to Springfield, Mo., where he worked as a policeman.
In 1967 Darrel moved his family to Hood River, Ore., where he worked various jobs for a short time until accepting a job as a local police officer. In 1972, Mr. Anderson started working part time for Diamond Fruit and eventually left the police force to work full time. Darrel was a faithful employee at Diamond Fruit until 1997 when he retired.
Mr. Anderson then became an entrepreneur and started Columbia Biological (a biological supply company) and Anderson Pit Stop (a fresh fruit stand.) Darrel also had a small cherry orchard in which he took much pride. He also loved flowers and landscaping and his beautiful yard was a testimony to it.
Some of Darrel's hobbies included fishing, and antique and classic car collecting. He was a member of the Fruit Loop, American Legion, and was raised in the Church of Christ.
Mr. Anderson is survived by his wife Betty Jean of Hood River, daughters Deborah J. Allen of Hood River, Lonna Kay Taylor of McMinnville, Ore., and Diana Michelle Anderson of Goldendale, Wash., sons Markham Wayne Anderson of Hood River, Chris C. and James C. Anderson of Portland, sisters Genevieve Horton of Nixa, Mo., and Lois Davis of Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.
He is also survived by brothers Everett Anderson of Oldfield, Mo., and Elvin "Barney" Anderson of Cassville, Mo., 12 grandchildren, one great-grandchild and numerous nieces and nephews.
Darrel was preceded in death by six of his siblings.
