LAKE STEVENS — More than two weeks after his wife died in a crash west of Lake Stevens, a 79-year-old man died this week from injuries suffered in the crash.
Around 2:15 p.m. on May 30, Kenneth Anderson, of Lake Stevens, was driving in the 10100 block of 84th Avenue Northeast, west of Lake Stevens, when he drifted off the road and into a cement pillar, said Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe. His wife, 78-year-old Lake Stevens resident Sharon Anderson, died at the scene.
On Thursday, Kenneth Anderson died at a local hospital, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office. They both died of blunt force injuries.
An obituary noted Sharon and Kenneth Anderson were married 50 years. They had seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. The obituary published in The Daily Herald also notes Sharon Anderson was known to be a “kind, humble and giving person” who loved gardening and hosting bonfires.
