Erin Mark Anders

Erin Mark Anders was born in San Antonio, Texas on March 17, 1958 (St. Paddy’s Day) hence the name Erin. He passed peacefully at home in El Portal on May 19, 2015.

He was a legendary trail worker in Yosemite National Park, loved his kitties, his work and his wife Catherine “Pinky” Collamer, and was loved by many. He is survived by Pinky and by his mother Joanne and several siblings.

An informal tribute and toast to Erin were held in the Old El Portal play park on the evening of May 19. A bigger celebration of Erin’s life will be held in September.

Memorial contributions can go to the Yosemite Conservancy with an emphasis on donations for trail work in Yosemite.
