William “Bill” Edward Anderson
June 21 (Father’s Day), 1936 – October 28, 2020

Infant SON Billy Anderson was welcomed into his family after three sisters. He grew up surrounded by aunts, uncles, and cousins here in Wenatchee. A graduate of Wenatchee High School in 1955, he entered the Navy and advanced to corpsman in Physical Therapy, which he thrived on.

Marrying Sharley Gile in 1960, he worked for Boeing in Renton, returning to Wenatchee with his wife and children, Jeff and Katy, in 1968. He enjoyed the public and fellow workers at Rocky Reach Dam until retirement.

As a left-handed first baseman, he enjoyed playing baseball through school, Navy and early retirement. And if he saw a burl of wood, watch out! He left behind bowls and standing pieces, having drawn out their deep beauty with his “turning” and finishes.

Bill is survived by his wife Sharley, son Jeff Anderson, and daughter Katy (Doug) Carr; four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Jesse Anderson and Emma Link Anderson, and by his sisters Helen (Fahy) McKee, Emma Jean (still born) and Beverly (Jim) Miller.

The hand written notes, sent since his passing, reflect his kindness and humor. Bill’s family would like to acknowledge Hospice’s vigilant care during his dementia and that of the caregivers at RiverWest.

His life will be celebrated at a church service at King’s Orchard church of Christ, 1610 Orchard Avenue, Wenatchee on Saturday, November 14 at 11 a.m. Masks and social distancing, please.

Sharley, I was saddened to read of Bill's passing. He was always fun to talk to at the gym. He was always waiting for "headquarters" to tell him where they would go next, referring to you. My thoughts are with you today. Delores Feil (from EZ line class)

My sincerest sympathies to Sharley & family. Bill was a genuinely nice man. I enjoyed chatting with him at the WHS summer picnics & Sharley, you are just as sweet & nice. He left a lot of love & memories to comfort you and that will become your treasures. Hugs my friend, Arlene Edwards Sandhop-Kimm.

I remember well and fondly Billy Anderson left-handed first baseman. Played on the Columbia 5th grade team that beat East Wenatchee 6th grade baseball team. John Davis

I met Bill when I worked at Rocky Reach Dam for two summers as a Visitor Attendant. He always had a twinkle in his eye, showed all us college students how to correctly mop a floor and was a true gentleman. I even have his "famous" (in our family, anyway!) baked bean recipe! After I moved back home and started attending church at King's Orchard and, later, started working as the church secretary, I really got to know Bill even better. Really going to miss you Bill, but I know I will see you later up in heaven!
