Dennis LaMar Anderson, 62

Dennis LaMar Anderson, 62, passed away in his home on Feb. 27, 2023.
Dennis was born on April 30, 1960, in Hallock, Minn. He was the youngest of six children born to LaMar and Mary Etta Anderson. He had a rough start to his life as he was two months premature and weighed only about 2 1/2 pounds!
A memorable activity in his younger years was being a member of The Good News Generation Singers, a Gospel singing group of young people. He graduated from Hallock High School in 1978.
Dennis spent his life working at a variety of jobs. One of his jobs was working for Anderson Sanitation Service for his father, LaMar, and at another point he worked with his brother, Brian. He was also a farm employee for neighbors and his cousin. He worked in Minneapolis for a short time in a department store as a sales employee. Most recently he worked in Lake Bronson and Lancaster as a bartender where he had many friends! His cherished companion of many years was his much loved dog, Petey. Dennis had a home in Kennedy, Minn.
Health issues really took a toll on Dennis! He went through open heart surgery, had his leg amputated below the knee as a complication of diabetes and the last few months he was going through dialysis twice a week. The nurses in the dialysis unit sent messages after Dennis passed stating he was a kind and thoughtful patient. He was great with staff and would be greatly missed! Dennis was a kind, soft-hearted big teddy bear of a guy. He was generous to a fault.
He is survived by: his mother, Mary Etta Anderson, Karlstad, Minn.; sister, Diane (James) Hahn, Saint Cloud, Minn.; brother, Brian (Tressa) Anderson, Hallock; sister, Wanda Nelson, Santa Ana, Calif.; several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
He was preceded in death by: his grandparents; an infant brother, Daniel; father, LaMar Anderson; sister, Marsha Wilson; and niece, Jeannette (Hahn) Lund.
Dennis was a beloved son, brother, uncle and friend! Always in our hearts!
A gathering for a celebration of Dennis’s life will be held Saturday, July 15, 2023, at the Lake Bronson Community Center from 1 to 3 p.m.
