Birth: May 5, 1924
Death: Dec. 27, 1943

Cenotaph erected by the Ogden Women's Patriotic Council.

U.S. Navy, Aviation Ordnanceman 3C.

One of six Navy men lost when their U.S. Navy Ventura PV-1 bomber made a crash landing after taking off from Ault Field, a Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island, Washington.

The crash site was discovered at the northern end of Vancouver Island six months later. The bodies of five crew members were discovered, but not that of Anderson. It is believed that he cared for his injured crewmates, and as they eventually all died, created a makeshift gravesite for them. Authorities say, in all probability, that Anderson then attempted to walk through the remote wilderness hoping to find civilization. His body was never found.

The Veteran's Administration furnished a marker and it was placed in the West Weber Cemetery in Utah alongside that of his parents, Joseph Andrew and Katherine Rebekah, nee Potter, Anderson. An additional memorial has been posted there by his relations, Barbara and Jay Potter.

On September 15, 2006 a stainless steel obelisk memorial was dedicated to the entire crew at Lawn Point on Vancouver Island.
