Obituary for Lynwood Anderson
LYNWOOD R. ANDERSEN “LYN”, age 60, Circle Pines, MN, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, January 28, 2007. Lyn was born May 16, 1946, to Joseph and Minnie Andersen. Lyn Served in the Army January 4, 1966 to January 2, 1968. Lyn married his high school sweetheart, Bette Strenke on April 20, 1968. Some of Lyn’s favorite names to call Bette were “Miss Bette” and “Fred”. Lyn was CEO and President of Wissota Siding & Windows, Inc., a company co-owned with his son, Darin. Lyn was a loving husband, dad, grandfather, brother, and friend. This special man was loved by many. Words cannot be expressed to explain how much he will be missed by those who knew and loved him. Lyn is survived by wife, Bette Andersen, Circle Pines, MN; son, Darin (lady friend, Brenda Metz) Andersen, and grand dog, Cheyenne, Circle Pines, MN; son, Brad (bride, Jessie) Andersen, and precious grandson, Mason, Somerset, WI; sisters, Virginia (Lloyd) Nelson, Luck, WI; Marlys Pedersen, Luck, WI; Melva Jean (Weston) Plath, Hutchinson, MN; Sharon (Earl) Silbaugh, Little Canada, MN; our Danish family, Niels Ole and Annelisa Gade; and other family and friends. Lyn was a sports fanatic. He loved his Green Bay Packers (“No. 4 - one more year”) and the Wisconsin Badgers. Lyn enjoyed to travel in his motor home “The Bus.” A few of his “bus” trips included traveling to Canada and Michigan (for his annual fishing trips), to Lambeau Field (the K-mart parking lot), and to Kansas City to the NASCAR race. Lyn also loved to cook/grill with a little song and dance wearing his shorts. He also enjoyed putting puzzles together. Lyn had a great sense of humor and was a great storyteller. Lyn had a big heart and would share a smile and chuckle with anyone. Funeral Services were held on Monday February 5th at the Luck Lutheran Church with Rev. Mark Hall officiating. Burial was in the Luck Village Cemetery in Luck Wisconsin.
