Anderson, Harold  
EUREKA - Harold E. "Bud" Anderson, 76, of Eureka passed away at 9:10 a.m. Saturday, April 18, 2015, at his home. He had been in poor health the past seven years. Born March 9, 1939, in Calhoun, Okla., to Geather D. and Lois (Deaton) Anderson, he married Carol A. Brown on Oct. 19, 1961, in Eureka. She survives. Also surviving are sisters, Maxine Shipley and Reba (Frank) Merritt, both of Eureka, Kathleen (Ray) Archey of Shady Point, Okla., and Freda Bandoni of Arkoma, Okla.; one brother, John Anderson of Yellville, Ark.; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters and three brothers. Harold proudly served two years in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. He was assigned to the Fort Myer, Va., motorpool and had the honor of driving in President Kennedy's funeral procession to Arlington National Cemetery on Nov. 25, 1963. He was a member of American Legion Post 466 in Eureka. Harold worked as a welder at Ulrich Manufacturing Co. in Roanoke, then A.O. Smith and Washington Equipment Co. in Eureka. He was a skilled gunsmith for many years, which he had a deep passion for, and was a life member of the National Rifle Association and the Illinois State Rifle Association. He enjoyed being outdoors hunting, fishing and trapping and belonged to the North American Trap Collectors Association and Ducks Unlimited. For many years, he raised exotic chickens and game birds, which was another enjoyable period in his life. He loved animals, always had cats and hunting dogs and enjoyed feeding and observing the wild birds that came to his feeders. He and Carol grew large gardens for more than 45 years. He wore a beard since 1976, which eventually turned white, and children often thought he really was Santa. He touched the lives of so many people through the years and left an indelible impression on them. A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 25, 2015, at Olio Township Cemetery in Eureka, where full military rites will be conducted. There will be no visitation. Knapp-Johnson Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Morton is handling arrangements. Memorials may be made to American Legion Post 466, P.O. Box 97, Eureka, IL 61530.
