Ronald Ralph Anderson, age 83, a resident of the Bath VA Community Living Center and previously of 31 Seneca Drums, Himrod, NY passed away on Tuesday, June 25th, 2019. He was born November 19th, 1935 in Corning, NY, the son of Arvid Anderson and Lana Pierson. He married Viola Jean Cody on October 11, 1958 at the Grace United Methodist Church in Corning, NY, and was preceded in death by her in 2017.

He graduated from Painted Post High and joined the U.S. Navy, serving his country in the Vietnam conflict and retiring after 20 years. Ron saw over 26 countries including a 6 month tour in Antarctica, and while stationed in Spain, his wife and three children joined him.

He was an avid bow hunter and fisherman, spending many hours on Seneca Lake with friends. He competed in Archery Tournaments for many years with his family. He tied fishing jigs and ran Ron's Jigs.
