Sterling Bud Anderson

March 05, 1921 - November 05, 2015


Bud went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 5, 2015 at home with family by his side. He was born in Lynden, WA on March 5, 1921 to Emil and Esther Anderson. He is survived by daughters Lynne and Bev, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Bud graduated from Lynden High School in 1937 and married his high school sweetheart Bun on August 1, 1941, sharing almost 72 years of marriage.
Together he and Bun dairy farmed for over 30 years. In 1942 Bud started driving truck and hauling milk cans for Darigold, moving on to small milk tankers and finishing up his career with the big trucks and trailers with LTI. For over the 40 years he drove all over Whatcom County gathering friends and acquaintances where ever he went. Up to the day he passed he could recognize people, maybe not remember their names but never forgot their route number.
Bud and Bun were active members of Sunrise Baptist Church. For over seventy years this church was their spiritual family and the place where they dedicated their lives to raising their daughters in a Christian atmosphere.
After retiring Bud and Bun did extensive traveling in Europe, Israel and all over United States. Their big love was Southern Gospel Music. For over 30 years they traveled once a year to the National Quartet Convention in Tennessee and Kentucky.
The family would like to thank Signature Home Care, Hospice and Oliver Ross, the ALS regional representative, for the tender loving care they provided for our Father these last few weeks of his life.
The funeral service will be held Sunday, November 15th at 1:30 p.m. at Sunrise Baptist Church.
Memorials in honor of Bud may be made to the Lighthouse Mission in Bellingham, Washington

  1. What a big loss. I am so thankful, albeit a short time, in getting to know Bud and Bun. They were at Meadow Greens briefly but left a huge impact on me. What wonderful people. I feel blessed to at least have a short time with him/them.

    I am very sorry to hear of you loss and wish to share with you a scripture at John 5: 28, 29, which states in part, that “all in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”, yes a resurrection to life. May it be that the “peace of God that excels all thought . . . guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”.(Phil. 4:7) The Bible gives hope, a resurrection hope, for our love ones. John 5:28, 29 states that “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. This is a sure hope, a real hope, that I too look forward.Please take care of yourselves, and each other. I Love you, but Jehovah loves you more.

  3. Dear Lynne and Bev, Sorry to hear of your loss. I think Uncle Bud lived the exact life he wanted to live. Dedicated to his wife, family and church. I admire your strength and care during the last few years of his life. There are always somethings that are very special between a father and his daughters and seeing him with the two of you are very fond memories. Still in Calgary, retired, all four children live here, only one very precious grandchild who is 5. Life is good, Keep in touch. Love Maurine
