Submitted by admin on Fri, 08/02/2013 - 16:14
Jon David Anderson, age 44, unexpectedly went home to heaven July 8, 2013, at his parents home in Stoughton.
Jon was born Oct. 16, 1968 in Colorado springs to David and Claudia (Baker) Anderson, but grew up mainly in Wisconsin and Michigan.
He was married to Yumi L. Nielsen for 17 years and after they graduated from the University of Michigan, they made their home in Manhattan, New York.
A published author, Jon worked for various New York financial institutions and was at Merrill Lynch when he witnessed the 9-11 attacks. He continued to pursue his art and writing and had completed a collection of gallery ready artwork at the time of this death.
Jon had recently come to Wisconsin and was providing much needed help gardening and landscaping his sisters nature center. His artists eye and love of the outdoors was evident as he transformed our gardens and woods. Jon was a kind and gentle soul with a brilliant mind. Jon had placed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and we know he is with Him now and that the reunion with his brother Jason was a joyous one.
Jon is dearly loved and greatly missed by his long-term friend and former wife Yumi, of New York; his parents David and
Claudia of Stoughton; his sister Kate (Luke) Dennis of Stoughton; his nieces and nephew Isabella, Ava and Indiana Dennis; and his grandmothers Helvi Anderson and Jan Baker of Minnesota.
He is further survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins in Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and Texas.
There will be a memorial service at a later date in Duluth, Minn. where Jon will be buried next to his younger brother Jason
Robert Anderson who preceded him in death in July 1997.
Memorials can be made to the family or LakeView Church in Stoughton.
