Kyle Matthew Anderson, a retired U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development branch chief, died of cancer Nov. 24 at his home in the Milford Mill section of Baltimore County. He was 58.
Born in Baltimore and raised in Ashburton, he was the son of Paul Anderson, a U.S. Postal Service worker, and Bernadette Anderson, a social worker.
He attended Our Lady of Lourdes School and Lemuel Junior High School, and was a 1976 graduate of Northwestern High School.
He attended Towson University and obtained a bachelor of science degree at Coppin State University. He was a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity and was its keeper of records, exchequer and historian.
He joined the Department of Housing and Urban Development and became its asset management branch chief. He retired in 2015.
Mr. Anderson was an avid golfer for more than 30 years. He played with a group of friends who spent weekends at courses in Maryland and Pennsylvania and had annual outings to Florida and Myrtle Beach, S.C. His friends called him the "Commissioner of Golf." He had attended the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga.
Mr. Anderson hosted family events on Mother's Day and at Christmas. He enjoyed jazz music and liked viewing old films and television situation comedies.
He was an outdoor griller — ribs and steaks, family members said — and enjoyed gardening, raising tomatoes, spring onions and peppers.
A funeral Mass will be offered at 11 a.m. today at the New All Saints Roman Catholic Church, 4408 Liberty Heights Ave., where he was a member.
Survivors include his mother and two sisters Ivy Lawal and Holly Archer, all of Baltimore; and nieces and nephews.
