Steven Frank Anderson
1952 ~ 2015

Steven Frank Anderson, beloved son, brother, father, and uncle, passed away peacefully in his home in Flower Mound, Texas on March 7, 2015 at age 62, after a long and brave 3 year battle with cancer.

Steve was born on December 30, 1952 in Provo, Utah to Merlin F. Anderson and Elaine M. Peterson. Steve spent his early years in Corvallis, Oregon and his teenage years in San Jose, California. Upon graduation from Willow Glen High School in San Jose, California, Steve attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah for one year, before embarking on a mission for the LDS church in Central America. He spent two years sharing his faith and serving the people of Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, from 1972 to 1974.

Steve returned to BYU for an additional year, studying physics, before transferring to San Jose State University in California, where he earned his degree in Meteorology. Steve began his career conducting air circulation testing for wind tunnels in San Francisco, California and forecasting weather in Palo Alto, California for ships out to sea. His bilingual skills in Spanish won him his first meteorologist job for the airline industry, forecasting weather for Continental Airlines in Los Angeles. When the company dissolved its meteorology department in 1983, Steve accepted a position with American Airlines as a meteorologist in Dallas/Ft. Worth, a position which he held in the same location through industry ups and downs, for 32 years. He excelled as a meteorologist, and was an avid traveler, exploring nearly every state in the United States, as well as abroad in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, England, France, Germany, and the Caribbean.

He loved building model airplanes, feeding ducks at the local pond, trips to Sonic, identifying the airplanes taking off and landing at the airport, and watching his favorite football teams. In his church service, he was a true leader, always reaching out to those that needed assistance. His bright willingness to serve will be a lasting legacy to those whose lives he touched. We will miss him and his stalwart and loyal presence.

He is survived by his five daughters; Kjerstina Anderson, Nicolle Anderson, Charmagne Layton, Tiffany Anderson, and Julie Gravley; parents; Frank and Elaine Anderson; sister; Debra Anderson and brothers; Bradley, David, Christopher, and Franklin Anderson.

Funeral services were be held on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 11:00 am, with a viewing being held prior to services from 9:30 am to 10:30 am, at the Flower Mound 1st LDS Ward Chapel located at 3882 Quail Run, Flower Mound, Texas.

Graveside services will be held for Steve on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 at 11:00 am in the American Fork Cemetery 600 North Center Street, American Fork, Utah.
