Harry Julius Anderson

April 5, 1952 - August 31, 2017



Harry Anderson died unexpectedly, but peacefully in his sleep in Nakusp, British Columbia at the age of 65.


Harry is survived by his beloved wife, Judy of 42 years, and their three children; his daughter Trista, husband Kyle and their two children Alyssa and Graham; his son Colin, and youngest son Aaron, his wife Heather and their two children Asher and Ayla. Harry leaves behind his brother and best friend Gordon Anderson, sister-in-law Cheryl, nephew Blake and niece Paula.


He was born in Fernie, British Columbia on April 5, 1952, and was predeceased by his parents Dora and Arthur Anderson.


Harry was employed by the British Columbia Ministry of Forests for 35 years and spent many summers passionately fighting forest fires. He was a proud and valued contributor to his community and was the longest standing member of the Nakusp Volunteer Fire Department serving over 34 years. He was also a member of the Nakusp Rod and Gun Club, Search and Rescue, and coached Minor Hockey when his children were in the program.


Harry took great pride in all that he did and accomplished. He touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed.

Sorry for your loss. Harry was a great man. When we still lived in Nakusp I enjoyed going out fishing and hunting when ever I could with Harry. My fondest memory was mule hunting up Dennis Creek with him and when I saw a small mule buck i was going to take Harry was standing behind me and said “you don’t really want to shoot a small mule do you?”. Well he convinced me to not shoot him and it worked out great as 10 minutes later I shot my biggest mule buck. Love you Harry and will miss you. A great man that will never be replaced.
