Mark A. Anderson
Jun. 12, 1962 - Nov. 27, 2014

Mark A. Anderson, a longtime resident of Bend, Oregon, passed away at home with his family on Thanksgiving Day - November 27, 2014. Mark was born on June 12, 1962, in Corvallis, Oregon, to Wayne and Helen Anderson.
His family and friends were everything to him; they were the light in his smile and the twinkle in his eyes. He enjoyed life to the fullest and that is how he made everyone around him feel that they were the most important person. His warm smile and easy going, soft spoken way made you feel very special.
Mark was an avid outdoor person who loved to hunt. His grandpa and dad taught him wood working at an early age, and because of that he enjoyed making things with his hands - building and creating things was his passion in life. He helped thousands of families get their dream homes over the years working in the finance industry through Western Pacific Mortgage. He had a true love of helping people make their dreams come true.
His love for his family was the light in his eyes. Mark is survived by his wife, Tammy; son, Aaron, serving in the USAF in Little Rock, Arkansas; daughters, Amber and Sienna; stepdaughter, Athena Walters;  grandchildren, Tyler and Michael; his parents, Wayne and Helen Anderson of Corvallis, Oregon; and sister, Dana Orton (and husband, Rob) from Redmond, Oregon.
Funeral arrangements are by Baird Funeral Home of Bend, 541-382-0903 www.bairdmortuaries.comA celebration of life service will be held Monday, December 15, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. at Christian Life Center, 21720 Highway 20, Bend, Oregon 97701.
The family would like any memorial donations to go to the cancer research center of your choosing.
