Albert C. Anderson

December 24, 1954 - May 10, 2024

Albert C. Anderson, a loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away peacefully at his home in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 10th, 2024, at the age of 69, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Al was born in Newport, Oregon, on December 24, 1954. He is survived by his beloved wife, Shelley, his dear children, his cherished grandchildren, and his two loyal and faithful dogs. Al’s family was the center of his world, and he deeply valued the moments they spent together.

Al was a man of many passions, with a deep love for hiking, music, and traveling. His adventurous spirit took him to many beautiful places around the world, and he found great joy in exploring nature’s wonders. Music was the soundtrack to his life, providing him with solace and happiness, and he often shared this love with family and friends.

Al had an infectious laugh, and all who knew him remember it as part of his charm and warmth. His laughter could light up a room and brought so much joy to those around him.

Al’s two dogs, Ganja and Charlie, were incredibly important to him and were always by his side. They provided him with unwavering companionship and comfort, especially during his journey with cancer. Their presence was a source of great strength and support for him.

Al’s battle with cancer showcased his remarkable strength and resilience, facing each challenge with grace and determination. His spirit and positive outlook left a lasting impact on everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.

Al will be deeply missed, but his legacy of love, adventure, and strength will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
