Marvin Charles Anderson, 74, (aka. Peewee and Andy) born in Washington State lived a remarkable life, embracing each day as if he had nine lives. He was a busy man, always tinkering with cars, going to car shows, constructing sheds, playing softball, and cultivating his garden. He even took part in a production of "A Christmas Carol" as Marley, alongside his two daughters. Marvin took great pride in his children, Angelique (Jimmy Matz), Anna-Marie, and Aaron (Lynette Anderson), and adored his two grandchildren, Branden and Amilia. For the last eight years of his life, he was surrounded by his three dogs, Sassy, Lucy, and Bailey, lovingly cared for by his grandson Branden.
Andy served his country from 1969-1970 as a Sergeant during the Vietnam War in the United States Marine Corps before embarking on a career at Mountain Bell, now known as Century Link. He had a deep bond with his brothers, Dwayne (Washington) and Rick (Washington) and cherished their relationship. Andy's marriage to his beloved late wife Peggy Ann Anderson was a source of great joy to him, and he was supported through his illness in 2016 by Diane Valdez, the mother of his children.
Now reunited with Peggy Ann, his Shar Pei Scooter, his brother Dino, and all the cats and dogs he loved throughout his life, Andy passed on his passion for animals and his sense of humor. He will be remembered fondly for his infectious laughter and his desire to make everyone smile. Andy's absence will be deeply felt, but his legacy of love and laughter will live on. He will be laid to rest at Santa Fe National Cemetery, Santa Fe New Mexico.
