Obituary for Worth Eugene Anderson

Worth Eugene  Anderson
Worth Eugene Anderson, 95, passed away on June 11, 2018. He was born on Feb 6, 1923 in Vidalia, Georgia. His wife of 65 years, Marianne, his parents and two brothers and a sister preceded him in death. He is survived by his daughter, Christine Brown, her husband David of Naples as well as two step grandsons Matthew Brown, Richmond Virginia, and Devin Brown, Fort Lauderdale.

Worth grew up in the depression 30’s in Vidalia and had wonderful stories of those days. He joined the US Army in 1941 and was serving in Panama when WWII broke out. He and his brothers served through out WWII. Worth served in the 550 and was a medic after he was a machine gunner. He fought in Italy, and Southern France and was on rest and recuperation with his unit in England in December 1944. Then came the “Bulge” – he and his mates were loaded into their gliders and towed to near Bastogne on Christmas Eve 1944. He said they fought like crazy for 48 hours but after that “…we were freezing and so were the Germans.” That was as close to Germany as he got; after suffering frostbite he was medically sent back to the US. He subsequently got out of the Army but then went back in and served in the occupation forces in Berlin and Heidelberg, Germany.

There he met his future wife Marianne Knappe. They married and returned to live in Washington, DC and Arlington, Virginia.

Worth left the Army in the mid 50s but served further with DOD and subsequently made a full career in civil service. After retiring they moved to Jacksonville – then back to Virginia and subsequently to Naples in 2009 to be near Christine and Dave.

Worth and Marianne loved to travel and went all over the world. They made many trips to Germany, France, England, Ireland, Turkey and other places. Most significantly on their 50th anniversary they traveled with Christine and Dave and actually walked the battlefields of Bastogne in 2002. It was his first time since 1944 – it was a poignant moment for him but more for his son-in-law and daughter.

One more of our Greatest Generation pass on – he will be missed.

He will be interred at Sarasota National Cemetery along with his wife. Date to be determined.

Please in lieu of flowers make a contribution to the Salvation Army.

We would like to thank the staff of Physicians Regional Medical Center and AVOW Hospice House for professional service, great kindness and compassion.
