Gerald Anderson, 84, of Roseau, Minnesota passed away at Lifecare Manor in Roseau on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 with loved ones by his side. Gerald Conrad Anderson was born May 3, 1935 in Lake Bronson, Minnesota, the son of Melvin and Ida (Lindquist) Anderson. Gerald was raised in Lake Bronson and graduated from high school there. Soon after graduation he married Bonnie Hahn. Our much loved husband and father was a Jack of All Trades. He trained horses, worked at saw mills, drove over the road semi, drove for Transystems and worked on area farms. Gerald had a passion for the outdoors and walleye fishing (any season). He loved animals, but don’t tell anyone he secretly loved dogs! Gerald’s greatest love of course was family.
He is survived by his wife, Bonnie; children, Barb (Brent) Thorsteinson, Kennedy, MN, Patty Anderson, Ohio, and Tracy (Eric) Leedahl, Fargo, ND; beloved grandchildren, Nathan, Daphnie, Billy, Carson, Talon, Tayla, Thailin, Tay, Savannah, Paige, CharLee and Dawson; brothers, Arlen, David (Lynn) and Paul; and an aunt, Lois Lindquist. He was preceded in death by his parents; and his only beloved son, Rick Anderson. May you all know that in his life he loved you more!
Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in the Lancaster Covenant Church, Lancaster, Minnesota. Interment will be in Riverside Cemetery, Lake Bronson, MN. Visitation will be held at the church for one hour prior to the service.
