Peaceful 10

Clarence "Andy" A. Anderson


Clarence A. "Andy" Anderson was gifted with many talents, a determined and stubborn perfectionist who exhibited a gruff exterior attempting to cover-up a big ole soft heart.   He could be a perfect gentleman or as ornery as they come, always working best behind the scenes and far away from the limelight as he gave of himself to others.  He loved clearing snow from the driveways of the neighborhood widowed ladies and friends whose jobs required them to leave early in the morning.  The goal was to get it done and be gone before they knew who did it.  If they found him out, he never expected or accepted an offer of payment and often generous to a fault with folks who knew him best. 

His hobbies included baking, travel, woodworking, welding, photography, videography and making DVDs for his friends, converting old media to CDs or DVDs, creating greeting cards for birthdays and special events, computers and loved riding his big Harley.  He even served for a time on the team of TV cameramen at First Baptist Church, Edmond Oklahoma.

Professionally, he worked as a groundman in the construction of steel towers for cross-country power lines over the southwestern USA.  Moving was a lark to Andy because he never stayed anyplace long enough to put down roots.  He lived last in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma and Wisconsin but never lost his delightful Texas drawl!  He enjoyed living in East Troy, Wisconsin for the last 6 years and thought the snow was beautiful!  Maybe that's why he bought such a big snowblower and enjoyed using it!

Andy fought Stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer (adenocarcinoma) for the past 19 months with the help of his top-notched World Class oncology team at the ProHealth cancer centers in Mukwonago and Pewaukee.  Our deepest heartfelt THANKS to Dr Raza and Dr Francis and their wonderful staff!  We were blessed with the best of care even during his final days by the caring staff at AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc. We are grateful to the staff and army of Volunteers who provided such loving care in his most difficult days and the special, unforgettable "send-off" to his new home in Heaven.  May God richly bless you all!
