Alan Lynn Anderson

May 14, 1964 – January 27, 2023

Alan Lynn Anderson was born May 14, 1964, in San Antonio, Texas, and passed away suddenly of natural causes on Jan. 27, 2023, in San Pedro La Laguna, near Lake Atitlán, Guatemala. He was predeceased by his niece Jennifer Mary Anderson, stepsister Danielle Sue Green, father Edward L. Anderson, M.D., mother Margaret A. Anderson, and stepmother Joyce B. Anderson. He is survived by his brother Edward L. “Larry” (Debbie) Anderson, sisters Linda S. (Lenny) Coker and JoAnn (Sam) Goodrich, stepsister Danalee “Sissi” (Danny) Easterling and stepbrother Danny Lambrecht, aunts Judy (Jerry) Whitehead and Mary Nell Leitko, along with numerous cousins, nieces and nephews and many close friends whom he considered as family. 

Alan embodied the very definition of “free spirit” and traveled many parts of the world, especially Alaska, Southeast Asia and Central America. He settled in Skagway, Alaska, during the warmer months of the year, opened up the One Stop Tour Shop, and guided tourists through the marvels of Alaska with adventures via hikes, horseback or airplane – ensuring that his customers had, quite literally, some of the most memorable times of their lives. During cooler months is when Alan traveled abroad, met friends, created friends and absorbed the cultures around him. Many winters found Alan with his dear friends in Guatemala. 

Alan was a long-time member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles Aerie #25 in Skagway. If desired, donations can be made to the FOE Aerie #25, P.O. Box 181, Skagway, Alaska, or the charity of your choice. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, Aug. 12, 1 p.m. at the Eagles Club, 601 Broadway. Share a memory at 

Travel on, Alan. We’ll meet up and have a cup of coffee and a good laugh with you and your angels on the other side!
