Carl L. Anderson
January 27, 1924 ‒ August 30, 2002
MANSFIELD: Carl L. “Bud” Anderson, 78, of Freeway Circle North, Mansfield, died Friday morning August 30, 2002 in the emergency room of MedCentral Mansfield Hospital following a sudden illness.
He was born January 27, 1924 in Detroit to Carl G. and Minnie (Goble) Anderson, and was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School in 1943 following vocational electrical training.
A US Navy veteran of WWII, Bud attended Navy Radio School at Northwestern University, and served as an Electronics Technician 3C on radio and radio teletype equipment in the Pacific Theater, including service in Okinawa.
From 1947 to 1949 he worked as an appliance repairman for Dominion Electric, and from 1949 to 1953 as a radio repairman for R.E. Moorhead Ford. From 1953 to 1962 he worked maintenance with Mansfield Aircraft Company and in 1962 began working as an electronic engineer with the Tappan Company, retiring with more than 25 years of service.
He was a member of the Tappan Quarter Century Club and the Central Ohio Ham Radio Operators Club.
Bud was knowledgeable on a broad range of topics. Though he enjoyed traveling, bird watching and all the beauties of nature, he was electronically inclined, most happy to be found tinkering on his computers or ham radios.
He is survived by his wife Eunice A. (Matney) Anderson, whom he married June 28, 1957; his daughter and son-in-law Ruth Ann and Stephen Bowden of Mansfield; his son and daughter-in-law Richard M. and Rosa Hatfield of Mansfield; four grandchildren and their spouses Kimberly and Phil Mendiola of Orrville, Brian S. Herman of Crestline, Stephanie and Chad Kitts of Mansfield and Abby and Troy Schlereth of Mansfield; six great grandchildren; a step brother Eugene Marietta of Bellville; and sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Viola Ruhl, Evelyn and Tom Woodard and Robert and Lou Matney all of Mansfield.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his stepmother Daisy Anderson.

Burial will follow in Mansfield Memorial Park, where the Richland County Joint Veterans Council will hold military graveside honors.
