Christopher S. Anderson
Monday, January 22nd, 1962 - Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020

Christopher Scott Anderson, 58, of Washington, passed away unexpectedly at his place of business on September 2, 2020. Chris (as everyone knew him) was born on January 22, 1962 in Dayton, Ohio to Thomas and Harriet (Van Blarcom) Anderson.

Chris grew up in many different places with his family in the U.S. Some of his fondest memories are of living in Rochester, New York. Chris spent his teen years in Grapevine, Texas where he taught himself to play the guitar and came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Savior – his two great passions! He began writing and singing his own music, teaching guitar, and became very involved in his church. Chris graduated from Grapevine High School and went on to graduate from Texas A & M with a BA in Industrial Engineering. Gig ‘em!

He held many different positions over the years with a few of America’s top corporations, most of which related to global operations: IBM, Dell, Best Buy, Avery Dennison. In 2011, Chris fulfilled a life-long desire to run his own business, and to live and work where he and his family like to vacation, by making the move to Maine where he bought Friendship Trap Company. He thought of the company as an extension if his family and really cared for his employees and customers.

Chris was a devoted worship leader and Elder at several of the churches he belonged to throughout the years, as the family relocated for jobs, and was blessed to be appointed to those positions again at Salvage Church in Rockland. He was also chairman and a delegate for the Republican Committee in the Town of Washington.
Family and friends knew him as a loyal, devoted, faithful, self-less, strong Christian. A passionate man who thoroughly enjoyed creating whether it be songs, an atmosphere for worship, food or new manufacturing processes.

Chris is survived by his wife of 25 years, KC (Karen Cantley) Anderson of Washington, his parents Tomas and Harriet Anderson of Yardley, PA, his daughter Katheryn McCormick and husband David of Whitefield, sons Christopher “CJ” Anderson, Jr. of Washington, and Benjamin Anderson and wife Tiffany of Washington, brothers Thomas Anderson of New Jersey, David Anderson and wife Kris of Fuquay-Varina, NC, and John Anderson and wife Julie of Bedford, TX, sister Kathleen Anderson of Yardley, PA, nephews John Bell of Fuquay-Varina,NC, Kyle Anderson, Seth Anderson, and Joel Anderson all of Bedford, TX, and granddaughter Karen Jean Anderson of Washington.
