Russel Anderson, 38, Sidney, MT

Russel Anderson, 38, was born in Sidney, MT on March 14, 1985. He spent the first 14 years of his life in Montana, where he enjoyed swimming and endless summer days at his grandma's house with his brother Ronnie and his uncle Rodney, and cousins DJ, Roxanne, Lacy & Racheal- they were all his first and last best friends. He moved with his family to Pueblo, CO, in 1999. He was raised there until 2003 when he returned to Montana for a few years before settling down in Colorado.

He met and married Lillian Halverson and they had two children Jamey & Evan "Van" whom he adored and would do anything for. Russel moved his family to Montana in 2010. He worked at Millworks and for his uncle Terry Roth until he found his true passion working on diesel trucks as a diesel mechanic. He moved his family to Williston, ND, to be close to his work. Russel and Lillian separated in 2022 and he moved back to Sidney, MT, to live with his cousin Lacy Churchill.

Russel passed away on Monday, July 24, 2023 in Williston, ND.

Russel was always the life of the party. We all had many great times laughing and joking when we hung out. His sense of humor always brightened everyone's day. He enjoyed going shooting and spending time with his kids. During football season he cheered on the Vikings and had the funniest Viking outfit he dressed up in. We loved it.

He will forever be remembered by his brothers Ronnie, Richard, Cheldon and Quentin and sisters Felicia, Sage, Reese and Michaela as big brother. Russel loved his family and would do anything for us. His humor and love and hugs will be missed immensely. A piece of our hearts is missing; until we see you again my son.

John 5:28-29 "Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out-those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned."

Russel is survived by his children, Jamey & Van Anderson; mother Shawn and Dad Carlos Sandoval; father Brad Anderson; brother Ronnie Anderson; grandparents Gene & Ilene Roth; uncles Rodney, Terry (Carrie), Justin and Shane Roth; and his cousins who he loved dearly: DJ (Sarah) Roth, Lacy Churchill, Roxanne Roth, Racheal Lutz, Josh (Ann) Thiel, Darren Roth, and Natalie (Ish) Kwosie; and many other family members too numerous to mention.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents Hank and Shirley Anderson; infant son Ethen Anderson, and cousins Michael and Chris Roth.

Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
