Oshkosh - Carl Gunnar Anderson, Jr., age 87, passed away unexpectedly at Aurora Medical Center on Sunday, December 13, 2020. He was born to the late Karl and Alice (Lauren) Anderson on November 26, 1933 in Chicago, IL. After graduating from Steinmetz High School, Gunnar joined the U.S. Army and was stationed in the Panama Canal Zone. He married Marilyn Jeanne Ulman, the love of his life, on August 21, 1954 in Berwyn, IL, and they were together 61 years until her passing on November 29, 2015. Gunnar was the owner of Anderson Instant Printing in Chicago and worked there for many years. He was a member at First English Lutheran Church in Oshkosh. He enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, fishing and was a very talented artist, painting numerous pictures for his family, working with stained glass, and making ceramics for his grandchildren. In their younger years, he and Marilyn enjoyed square dancing. Gunnar was an avid bowler, traveling with Marilyn to bowling tournaments all over the country. He was an enthusiastic Disney fan and spent many happy days at Disney World with his family. He had a great sense of humor and liked making other people smile.
