Louis ‘Tom’ Anderson

Louis “Tom” Anderson, 74, was born on July 31, 1941 to Lester and Viola Anderson. Tom lost his battle with cancer on February 25, 2016.

Tom graduated from Elmwood High School in 1960 and enlisted in the United States Army in 1962, serving during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Tom worked at 3M for 37 years, retiring in 2000.  He enjoyed his days of retirement and was busier than ever.  

Tom loved working on classic cars, building houses, and fixing anything and everything. He was definitely a “jack of all trades.”

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Michele of CA; sons, Brad (Christa) of FL; and Brent (Denise) of Hudson; grandchildren, Sarah & Erin Anderson, and Megan & Wyatt Anderson; along with his siblings, many other relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Lester and Viola Anderson; and brothers, Jerry and Roger Anderson.

A Gathering of Family and Friends was held 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Sunday, February 28 at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home, 1010 Newton Street, Baldwin, WI.

He will be greatly missed.
