November 10, 1945 – April 18, 2023

Clinton Emil Anderson, a longtime Royal Slope resident, passed away on April 18, 2023, at the age of 77.

Born in Spokane on Nov. 10, 1945, he was the only child of Columbia Basin pioneers Clinton Eugene Anderson and Ethel Elizabeth Reynolds. In 1958 Clint’s dad brought Clint and his mother back to the family farm on Royal Slope where he finished high school. Clint was proud to be a member of the Othello High School Class of 1964. After graduation he began his 47-year career as a surveyor for the Bureau of Reclamation. The greatest joy in his life came in February of 2010 when his only grandchild, Benjamin Joseph Anderson, was born.

Although Clint was an only child, he had close relationships with many extended family members, especially his in-laws and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents, cousins Dick German and Karen Spellman and a sister-in-law Lavina Landauer. He is survived by his daughter Corrine and grandson Ben; five cousins Sally Gentch, Susan McAdams, Sandra Lara, Nadine Palmer and Sharon Gillahan and two brothers-in-law, Robert and Richard Landauer.

A Celebration of Life will be held on June 3, 2023, at the Othello Senior Center from 12 to 3 p.m. It was Clint’s wish that we host a large dinner where family and friends could eat and tell funny stories about him. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to the Alzheimer’s Foundation in Clint’s name.

Please express your thoughts and memories for the family at Arrangements are under the care of Kayser's Chapel of Memories.
