Lavern "Andy" M. Anderson

April 2, 1928 — May 23, 2020

LaVern “Andy” Anderson, 92, of Humboldt passed away on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at the Paula J. Baber Hospice House in Fort Dodge.

Andy was born on April 2, 1928 in Fort Dodge, the son of Vern and Grace (Bittner) Anderson. He grew up in Fort Dodge and graduated from Fort Dodge High School in 1947. At the outbreak of the Korean War in June 1950, Andy was drafted into the Army and stationed at Fort Rucker, Alabama where he served as a military policeman. There he met and married Doris Bolin and the two welcomed their children Kevin and Jill Anderson. Upon military discharge, the family moved to Fort Dodge where Andy worked in the telephone communications at Centel Company for 22 years. In 1974 he relocated his family to Slocomb, Alabama, there he was employed by Sony Corporation in Dothan, Alabama until his retirement in 1986. Shortly after retirement, his marriage to Doris was dissolved and Andy moved back to Iowa where he reunited and married his high school sweetheart, Verla. He lived the remainder of his life in Humboldt.

Andy loved to go hunting, fishing, golfing and go on walks. He was a fan of college sports, most notably football and basketball and his favorite team was the Hawkeyes. He enjoyed watching old westerns and driving bus for the Humboldt Schools.

He is survived by his two children, Kevin M. Anderson of Hartford, Alabama and Dr. Jill M. Anderson of Dothan, Alabama, four step-children, two special nephews and several other nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Verla, brother Robert Anderson and sister Colleen Sindlinger.
