Larry Anderson


November 18, 2020

Larry Anderson, 75, of Glasgow, Mont. passed away Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020, at Valley View Home, in Glasgow, Mont.

A memorial services with military honors is planned for Spring 2021, with burial to follow at the Harlowton Catholic Cemetery.

Larry was born Feb. 5, 1945, at Hallock, Minn., to Olaf and Virginia (Docken) Anderson. He received his early education at Opheim Schools and graduated from Opheim High School, in Opheim, Mont., in 1963. He went on to attend Northern Montana College and graduated in 1981. He joined the Army in February of 1964, in Presidio of San Francisco, Calif., as a Medical Corpsman and was released honorably in 1964.

Larry married Kathleen Berg on March 31, 1978, at the Calvary Baptist Church in Glasgow and the couple made their home in Great Falls, Mont., from 1979 until 2015, when his daughter Denise moved him back to Glasgow to be closer. He lived at Nemont Manor for three years and Prairie Ridge Village for two years. He moved to Valley View Home recently, where the staff and family took really good care of him.

He loved being a grandpa. Larry enjoyed lawn work, reading western books and watching western shows. He could often be found remodeling and building projects for all of his daughters. Often you would find him walking five miles a day. One of Larry's favorite things was hamburgers: he even had one named for him at the Whitehorse Saloon in Idaho...The Oly Burger.

Larry is preceded in death by his wife, Kathleen; brother Jerry Anderson; his parents, Olaf and Virginia Anderson; mother-in-law, Elaine Hanzlik; and three brothers-in-law, Leroy Guidery, Lloyd Traxler and Larry Hanzlik.

He is survived by four daughters, Denise (Duke) Forbes-Kegel, Theresa Farrar (Keith Carlson), Christine (Aaron) Jones and Linda Arioso; five sisters, Linda (Kenny) Reimche, Bonnie (Chuck) Walters, Barbara (Steve) Werner, Betty Traxler, and Andreen Guidery; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild; and numerous nephews and nieces.
