Captain Allan H. Anderson set sail on his final voyage Feb. 18, 2011 passing away peacefully at his home in Edmonds WA at the age of 68. Allan was born June 10, 1942 to Harold and Martha Anderson. He grew up in the Stanwood area graduating in 1960 from Twin City High School. Allan attended Skagit Valley College and then began his lifetime career on the sea. He started as a deckhand working for Foss Launch and Tug eventually becoming the youngest captain Foss had ever employed. Allan loved the ocean and the camaraderie of his fellow mariners. He was a respected mentor to many in the marine industry today.
In 1984 Allan began working at Crowley Maritime and sailed as Tug Master before accepting the position of Senior Port Captain eventually becoming Manager of International Operations and Salvage. He retired in Jan. 2006. Captain Al was a true legend of the seas and was known for his navigational skills, generosity and sense of humor. He was a member of the Masons and Shriners as well as the Masters, Mates and Pilots Union. Allan enjoyed playing the guitar and singing, golf and time spent with friends and family.
He is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Priscilla; his mother Martha Anderson of Stanwood; daughters Tina (Andrew) Gomes, Shelly McClanahan, Brenda (Danny) Woodall; grandchildren, Brandon, Bradley, Duke, Levi & Sofia; brother Johnny (Vicki) Anderson; nieces Cindy & Kirsten; nephew Michael; & mother-in-law Mary; as well as numerous extended family members. He was preceded in death by his father Harold & his stepdaughter Lisa. A celebration of life gathering will be held at the Nile Temple at a later date.

Smooth Sailing Captain!!!
