July 29, 1939 - December 13, 2022
In loving memory ~
Lanny Dale Anderson went home to Jesus on Tuesday, December 13th, 2022, at age of 83.
Lanny was born to Norman and Koreen Anderson on July 29th, 1939, in Spokane, Washington. From an early age Lanny loved and played sports like football and baseball, he tap-danced on the stage of the Fox Theater in downtown Spokane and grew to take on the title of "Coach" in both basketball and life.
Lanny married his high school sweetheart, Jean Miner in 1959 and went on to have three children: Dale, Daryl and Marilyn. In addition to being a dedicated and loving father and husband, Lanny also loved people and wanted them to know Jesus and have a successful life. Throughout his life, no matter where he lived, Lanny held an unwavering faith in God, which he often shared with those around him.
Lanny is survived by his wife Jean, his brother Larry (Patti), his children and their spouses, Dale (Cheryl), Daryl (Kathleen), and Marilyn (Collin); his grand-children; Jordan (Victoria), Leah (Elliot), Sarah (Bryan), Mark (Jodie), Bethany, Mitch (Sabrina) and Meghan (Ted); and his three great-grandchildren, Jude and Valentine (Jordan & Victoria), and Ada (Leah & Elliott); and many lifelong friends made along the way.
Lanny's favourite scripture was Colossians 1:27,
"To them, God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery...which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
