Russell Fremont Anderson, Jr

February 5, 1951 — July 8, 2020

Russell Fremont Anderson, Jr, 69 of rural Muscatine, died Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at his brothers’ home in Sherrard. Russ or Monte as his family called him, asked for cremation to be accorded upon death and to have a private family celebration of his life. Speer Funeral Home, Aledo is assisting the family.

Russ was born on February 5, 1951 in Davenport, Iowa, to Russell Fremont & Dorothy May (Burnaugh) Anderson, Sr. He served his country in the US Army. Russ was a heavy equipment operator with local #150 Operating Engineers. He loved to tinker with anything that had a motor and especially enjoyed fishing and living the simple life with his friends at the Muscatine Power and Boat Club and his faithful canine companion, Lulu.

Russ is survived by his siblings: Susan K. & Jerry McDonough of Pueblo, CO; Gregory K. Anderson of Burlington; Tonya R. Burch of Burlington and Scott & Vicky Anderson of Sherrard; his step-mother, Eileen Anderson of Ava, MO and many nieces and nephews. Russ was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Frank C. Anderson and his beloved dog, Sweet Pea/Bubba.

The family would like to thank everyone at the Muscatine Power and Boat Club for their friendship with Russ over the years; the Muscatine VFW Post #1565 for all the trips to the VA Hospital; and to Unity Point Hospice for the compassionate care given to Russ in his final days.
