Anders Cole Andreasen "Ders," 23, passed away over the July 4th weekend. He was born Jan. 25, 1993, in Great Falls and raised in Fort Benton. Anders graduated from Fort Benton High School in 2011 and participated in many activities and sports during high school. He went on to attend MSU, graduating this past May with a degree in Agricultural Business. A proud member of the Bobcat Rodeo team, he loved traveling and making new friends along the way. Anders was happiest spending time at the farm, with family and friends, roping/rodeo, hunting, sports, thinking up crazy shenanigans and making someone laugh. His infectious smile could light up any room or arena, he had a quick wit, an incredible gift of humor and a way with words. Anders took great pride in his wacky t-shirts and thrift store "fashion finds" as well as his vinyl record collection, herd of cattle, beloved horses and his old pickup "Blue Thunder." His life was short, but filled with fun. Anders was preceded in death by his Father, Henning Andreasen and Grandfather Bendt Andreasen. Anders is survived by his Mother, Terrianne Andreasen; Brothers, Randall Trudell and Jaron Andreasen; Grandmothers Marie Bidwell; Ruth (Lenington) Andreasen and a large extended family. He also leaves behind two very special friends, Taylor Judisch and Hallie Bronec and many close friends.
The Guest Book is expired.
We are saddened and brokenhearted that Anders chose to be with his Father and others that went before him. If you knew him, be grateful that you had the opportunity to be his friend. A "celebration" of his life will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, July 15th at the Chouteau County fairgrounds. Please feel free to attend and share your memories. We're asking friends to wear a shirt that "Anders would be proud you are wearing and jealous he didn't own." If you knew Anders through College Rodeo, please honor him by wearing your team apparel. The celebration will be followed by a humorous slide show and reception hosted by many friends.
