Byron C. “Buck” Anderson
April 25, 1937 - October 23, 2019
Byron C. “Buck” Anderson, age 82, of Townsend, DE, passed away on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.
Born in Philadelphia, PA on April 25, 1937, he was a son of the late Byron and Pauline (Arnao) Anderson. Buck worked for Delcard Associates as a Mechanical Foreman, retiring after 15 years in 2001. He left his mark on Delaware via the many projects he managed throughout the State, including libraries, manufacturing plants, research institutions, and the prison.
Buck knew what he loved, and he loved passionately. He was devoted to the Phillies and Eagles; loyal to the Cape Dory brand sailboat; dedicated to scraping, sanding, painting, varnishing and sailing his beloved sailboat; and determined to be a perfectionist in everything he did. He was a lover of guns and politics, an aficionado of crab cakes; and a connoisseur of Pusser’s Rum, Oreo cookies, and ice cream, ice cream, ice cream, especially Breyer’s.
He loved his family more than anything. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Jean E. Anderson; daughters, Linda Anderson Gould (Timothy Barron Gould) of Newark, Cynthia Ann Miller of Georgia and Karen E. Anderson (Bernhard Mueller) of Annapolis, MD; siblings, James Anderson of New Castle, Edward Anderson of Clayton and Joann Nelson of Newark; and grandchildren, Byron Timothy Gould and Laura Elizabeth Gould, both of Japan.
All services and interment will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Buck’s memory to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Attn: Membership Department, 6 Herndon Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21403.
