Duncan Anderson

Duncan Anderson

September 18, 1938 –

September 19, 2012


It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Duncan Anderson on September 19, 2012.

Duncan was born Sept 18, 1938 in Winnipeg, Manitoba and was predeceased by his parents Dorothy and Earl Anderson, of Winnipeg.

Left with wonderful memories are his loving wife of 50 years Patricia, his three children, Scott, Michael (Tess) and Michelle (Michael).  He also leaves behind six grandchildren, Joan, Cody, Tanner, Tia, Harrison and Jack. He was also blessed with twin Great Granddaughters, Samantha and Ava. He is survived by one brother Gordon Anderson  (Anne)  of Calgary.  Also mourning his passing is his longtime friend John Cochrane who shared his  days in radio and their mutual love of good jazz.

Duncan attended the School of Broadcasting in Minneapolis Minnesota and began his radio career in Winnipeg and later as program director of CHQR in Calgary. His love of fine foods led him to open his own line of Kitchen Boutiques also in  Calgary. 

Sixteen years ago he found his “little piece of paradise” here on Salt Spring and retired to indulge his passions …jazz, good food, hockey and his dog Maddie.

Family and friends are planning a private celebration to honor his life in the coming months.

We will miss him always.
