Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our brother, Rev. Donald “Eugene” Anderson, died on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
Eugene served among us at the Tracy (as assistant), Elverta, and Orangevale churches, as well as with the Division of Chaplains as a chaplain in the Dept. of Corrections, then at Jamestown and Orlando Federated before retiring in 1995.
Eugene was a writer and poet who loved nature, especially flowers. He delighted in taking donuts to “those who serve others”, such as police departments, banks, schools, and doctor’s offices. One of the recipients of this generosity wept upon learning of his death. He was well known and loved by the whole community.
He is survived by his wife, Kathryn Anderson, and by his son Darry “Gene” Anderson, and by one grandchild. Condolences may be sent to Kathryn at 307 Stony Creek Drive, Orland, CA 95963.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 11:00 am at Orland Federated Church in Orland CA.
Gifts in memory of Eugene may be sent to the Orland Federated Church, earmarked for the landscaping fund, at 709 First Street, Orland, CA 95963.
Let us continue to give God thanks for Eugene’s life and witness and hold his family close in prayer. In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño
