He owned and operated J.C. Anderson Co. Cabinets, Alumatrail Trailers, and assisted running River Rat Express Shuttle Company out of Stanley, Idaho. He was a builder, he did excavation, snow removal, demolition, and recovery, he was a Jack of All Trades. John was well known for making “things” happen. If someone couldn’t figure it out, they went to John, he always figured out what others could not.
Johnny loved anything fast, building, creating, breaking “boundaries”, shouting orders, and doing what others couldn’t, wouldn’t or shouldn’t. He loved the mountains and hunting (especially Stanley, ID). He loved his family, friends, his kitties and he loved playing cards. Many days, nights and long hours were spent helping those he loved. He will be remembered and missed by his family and friends.
