A celebration of Life for Dusty Anchors will be held June 22 at 1 p.m. at Olympic High School’s commons area. Anchors, a former local radio sports announcer and softball coach at Olympic, died May 16 at the age of 69 after a long battle with heart disease.

For years Anchors was the “Voice of Westsound”, a man whose tireless positive enthusiasm was difficult to overlook. He and Lane C. Dowell made a wonderful radio broadcast team doing basketball games and a weekend coaches’ corner show on local radio.

Anchors also did the public address at Olympic College basketball games and coached women’s basketball there, coached his two daughters in fastpitch softball  select teams and for Olympic High School and did it with a passion and a heart big enough to draw attention to even the casual observer.

In his last years, Anchors also coached at Eastlake High School and Battle Ground and then at Ridgefield High School
