Stacy Ray Anderson


(June 29, 2007)

Stacy Ray Anderson of Lovell died peacefully in his sleep Friday, June 29 at Lovell. He was 34.

Stacy was born in Powell Nov. 17, 1972, to Suzette Lopez and raised by Waneta and Marion “Buck” Anderson, whom he affectionately called “mom and dad.”

On Feb. 11, 1995, he married Dyan McNeil, and to this union a daughter, Aspen Brooke, was born. Dyan brought two sons, Joshua and Devon McNeil, to the marriage, and  Stacy claimed them as his own sons.

He was a “Jack of all trades,” including talents such as dry walling and plumbing. His family will remember him as one willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need and one who would consider any stranger a friend.

An avid fisherman, Stacy loved being outdoors. He would look for any excuse to go fishing. He loved to barbecue, always coming up with his own special sauces and seasonings.

Survivors include Dyan, his wife of 12 years; his daughter, Aspen Brooke; his step-son, Joshua; his mom and step-dad, Suzette and Louie Lopez; his “mom,” Waneta Anderson.; three brothers, Bob (Ruby) Anderson of Powell, Ron (Chinye) Anderson of Lacey, Wash., and Duane (Jayne) Anderson of Lacey, Wash.; six sisters, Carol (Dave) Harvey of Casper, Kathryn (Ted) Sager of Casper, Deanna (Ray) White of Powell, Marilyn Anderson of Olympia, Wash., Katherine (Jeff) Luoma of Olathe, Kans., and Gwen (Steve) Cruz of Powell;  and a host of nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his “dad,” Buck Anderson; and step-son Devon McNeil
