Frederick R. Anderson

Frederick Raymond Anderson, 92, died at home surrounded by family 23 July 2018.

Survived by his loving wife, Shirley (DeHaan) Anderson; children, Diane Taff, Rondi Collette, and Norman Anderson; sisters, Peggy Hodgetts and Betty Cullom; and cherished grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Margaret (Hultberg) Anderson; brother, Harry Anderson; nephew, Paul Cullom and niece, Debbie (Hodgetts) Ludwig.

Born on the south side of Chicago, Fred served in the South Pacific during WW2 aboard the USS LCI 990. He then attended the American Academy of Art on the G.I. bill and became a successful commercial artist for D'Arcy. He started his own studio at the age of 50 and taught evening classes at the American Academy of Art. He enjoyed volunteering at the Newberry Library. He was involved in the church communities of Stewart Ridge Congregational and later attended the United Methodist Church of Geneva IL where he designed banners and helped on committees.

Fred's wisdom and kind, thoughtful advice was cherished by many. He was passionate about sharing his love of books and art, encouraging creativity in others, young and old. His cheerful approach to life and calm strength will support us always. We hope to live by his example.

Visitation with Family will be held at United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton Street, Geneva, IL on Saturday, August 4 at 10:00. Service at 11:00.

In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the United Methodist Church of Geneva General Fund.
