Obituary

MELBOURNE, FL-

Donald Duane Anderson, 87, born February 5, 1933 in Milford, NE went to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, October 13. He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Virginia, and their daughters Tamara (David) McLeran, of Colorado Springs, CO; Roxanne (Larry) Kerley of Cocoa; and Rita (Douglas) Martin of Rockford, IL, and six grandchildren Amy (Dan) Pocius, Lt. Col. USAF Charles (Kelly) McLeran, Laura (Tyler) Smith, Amanda (Matt) Sulick, Dawn Martin, Michael Martin, seven great grandchildren, and two brothers Dale Anderson of Seward, NE and Kenneth (Linda) Anderson of Las Vegas, NV, and numerous nieces and nephews.

 

Don served his country in the US Air Force from 1953-57. After his discharge, while the space program was still in its infancy, Don moved his young family in 1958 to Brevard County to work for RCA followed by Lockheed Martin from 1972-1995. Don was dedicated to his faith, family, and barbershop singing. He was active in his church serving on numerous boards, committees, and multiple choirs throughout the years. He was a member of The Barbershop Harmony Society for over 50 years and held local and district offices with the organization. He was active in the local Harbor City Harmonizers Chorus where he sang in numerous quartets and enjoyed working with local high school Harmony Explosion camps. Always hitting the high tenor notes, Don was happiest when striking the perfect chord with other barbershop enthusiasts.

 

Don was predeceased by parents Ruth and Duane Anderson, sister, Sharon Neihardt, and grandson, Keith Ryan Martin.
