Lee Allan Anderson, 69, passed away on Aug. 25, 2021, in Roseau, Minn. He was born on Aug. 31, 1951, in Hallock, Minn., to Allan and Gladys Anderson of Kennedy, Minn.
He grew up on the family farm west of Kennedy and was the third of six children. He graduated from Kennedy High School in 1969. From there he attended Covenant Bible Institute in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada, for one year and then finished his education at Bemidji State University where he majored in social work. He also served on Covenant Youth Caravan for a year in eastern U.S. where he used his gifts of music and caring for people.
Lee had an interesting career doing several jobs, primarily working in oil fields and later Marvin Windows in Warroad, Minn.
In retirement, he was always quick to help friends with their projects and loved working and playing outdoors. His sense of humor, generous spirit and tender heart endeared him to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed!
