Born in Glenwood township of North Dakota, Earl Clinton Anderson as a young man moved north with his parents to Yorkton and Preeceville, Saskatchewan. He later married Inez Adelie Larson in Buchanen, Sask. on May 4, 1928.
Earl was enterprising and soon owned and operated a small automobile and tractor garage in Sturgis, Saskatchewan before moving with his wife Inez and son Adrian Earl Anderson to Flin Flon, Manitoba where he was hired as a machinist for the Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company.
Now a family of four with two year old son James Clinton, in search of a better life and a less hostile climate the family set out for British Columbia with their automobile strapped to a rail car for the first part of the trip to The Pas, Manitoba. On Remembrance Day, November 11, 1946 they drove into the Okanagan Valley and spent the first couple of weeks on the southern shores of Wood Lake between Kelowna and Vernon B.C.
A new home on Clement Ave. in Kelowna was soon found and purchased for the sum of $3000. At this time the fruit industry was in need of experienced machinists and Earl took a position working for the Kelowna Lands and Orchard Company at the top of the KLO hill, south and east of the city. Years later, Earl worked for Kelowna Motors, one of the large automobile dealerships. After his retirement, he spent many enjoyable hours working in his own machine shop adjacent to their next home on Brookside Ave, just a couple of blocks south of the Capri Shopping Centre in Kelowna.
Earl Clinton Anderson passed away on June 9, 1986.........
