Dorthy, Carolynn and Stuart, we were very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Although we have not seen Bill or the family in a number of years, we have never forgotten how generous and friendly he was when I first started with Inland in Penticton. Please accept our condolances; sorry we cannot be with you in Kelowna to remember the good days.

It is with great sadness that the Sunset Ranch Men's Club hears of the passing of long-time member Bill Anderson.

Bill was one of the first shareholders and helped build the Sunset Ranch Golf & Country Club. Every winter in the early years he would trim the trees and clear the areas under the limbs to make for a more pleasurable golf experience for all. In recent years Bill could always be seen on the course with his early tee time on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Anderson Lake on holes 10 and 18 is named after Bill. In the words of Sunset's Director of Golf Bruce Vermee, "Bill was a great guy and a huge contributor to our club."
