David Anderson of North Manchester died Thursday October 24, 2019 of complications after a long illness. He was a member of the South Pleasant United Methodist Church. Born in upstate New York, he was the only child of the late Arthur and Ruth Anderson and was predeceased by his friend, Martha. A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in optometry, he worked as an optician in the Boston area for many years before moving to Indiana. David was an avid coin collector and dealer in rare coins. He was a life member of the Marion Coin Club and started his own coin club in North Manchester. As a child, he and his cousins always asked to check the change in the pocket of any visiting family member in hopes of finding the rare 1909 S VBD penny. He also loved to attend antique and muscle car shows and supported the local VFW.
He is survived by his good friend, Pastor Russ, Kathy and Corny, Sheryl, the Lunden Family in Goteborg, Sweden and cousins Constance, Mark, Barbara and Donald.
Memorial donations in David’s memory may be made to the South Pleasant United Methodist Church and the Parkview Foundation Home Health and Hospice Fund in Fort Wayne.
