Richard V. Anderson, a retired furniture salesman and avid Oriole fan, died in his sleep Friday after a long illness at Edenwald Retirement Home in Towson, where he had lived for the past six years. He was 90.
Services for Mr. Anderson were being held today at the Ruck Towson Funeral Home, 1050 York Road.
From the age of 14, the Baltimore native worked in his family's business, Wielands Furniture Co. in Highlandtown.
In 1970, the family sold the business, but Mr. Anderson continued to work from his home selling furniture and flooring on a contract basis. He retired five years ago.
Mr. Anderson played on a semipro baseball team when he was young and attended Oriole games until about three years ago.
