Obituary for Douglas A. Anderson
Douglas Andrew Anderson, age 80, died at home, February 13, 2016.

Doug was born to Andrew and Ruby (Nelson) Anderson in Bone Lake, Wisconsin and attended school in Frederic, Wisconsin.

Doug worked for various farming businesses in Wisconsin until he moved to Anoka, Minnesota. There he managed Stone's Turkey Farm, worked for Federal Cartridge, was the manager of two service stations, and the vehicle manager for Minnesota Utility Contractors.

In 1985 he moved back to Wisconsin, finding 20 acres of wooded land south of Balsam Lake. His greatest joy was deer hunting on his own property and fishing the many lakes in the area. He had many adventures night hunting for coon, and often for his dogs after the fact.

Even more than the hunting and fishing, Doug enjoyed the company of friends at the Angler Inn in Balsam Lake. He kept up on all the local news through his many friends. Doug enjoyed people!!!

Doug was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and Ruby Anderson; brothers, Donald, Arvid, and Roger Anderson; sisters, Marian Lundquist and Audrey Branstad; and brother-in-law, Rolland Lundquist.

Doug is survived by his wife of 44 years, Cheryl; children, Kevin (Sue) Anderson, Bruce (Carol) Anderson, Rick Anderson, Pam Davey, Lisa Anderson, Jan (Joe) Sands, David (Deb) Peterson; 20 wonderful grandchildren and 4 rambunctious great-grandchildren. He is also survived by sisters, Lois (Chuck) D'Jock, Norma (Ken) Zittleman, Sandra (Dennis) McKee; sisters-in-law, Joan Anderson and Pat Anderson; brother-in-law, Bevan Branstad; and many nieces and nephews.

A private family service is planned for this spring.
