Gregory Dean Anderson
Gregory Dean (Greg) Anderson of Burnsville, passed away on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, at Fairview University Hospital from complications due to a stroke following his recent heart surgery. He was surrounded by his children and went peacefully.
Greg was born in Fillmore County on June 22, 1953, to Amos and Helen (Tolrud) Anderson. He was proud to be a funeral director for the majority of his working career and found satisfaction helping families which was well known as one of his innate qualities. He was funny, caring, enigmatic and true to himself. He never shied away from a good time, but he also worked hard every day to make a difference in the lives of those he loved. His hobbies of gardening, boating, cooking and music are just a few of which he was known for. His storytelling was top notch and he could have even the most stoic people laughing, even if they'd already heard the story a million times.
Greg was a long-time member of the Zuhrah Shrine Horsemen and a proud member of The Torske Klubben.
He is survived by his kids, Thomas Anderson (Tami), Lindsey Anderson Watson (Wes), John Anderson (Kristina Janu) and Jessica Norem (Tony); grandkids, Garrett, Aurora, Lillian and Ashton.
