MARVIN ANDERSON
January 10, 1922 - Aug. 21, 2015
Marvin Louis Anderson, 93, was born on January 10, 1922 at a farm north of Powers Lake, ND to Laura Beulah Anderson (nee Larson) and Julius Adolf Anderson.

After suffering a short illness last week, he died Friday, Aug. 21, 2015 at Sanford Medical Center, Dickinson with his children by his side.

After graduating from Powers Lake High School, Marvin attended North Dakota State University and majored in business. In June of 1945, he enlisted in the United States Navy and was stationed at Great Lakes Naval Base in Illinois and Dearborn, MI. He met Jennie Catherine Barton at a USO event in the Detroit area and they were married on June 21, 1947 in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI.

He is survived by 12 of their 14 children: Theodora (Dr. Patrick Jimerson), Waukegan, IL; David (Barbara), Aurora, CO; Deborah (Allen Erickson), Battle View; Keith (Sharon), Powers Lake; Shelly, Minot; Joel, Palmyra, MO; Mary (Richard Hutchens), Dickinson; Anita (Todd Jorgenson), Powers Lake; Lori (Kenneth Sorg), Swansea, IL; Colleen (James Lobdell), Portola Valley, CA; Cynthia (Peter Alexander), Palmyra, MO; Shaun (Dawn), Palmyra, MO;

grandchildren: Catherine, Tessa, Shane, Tara, Wayne, Tyra, Crystal, Dawn, Brandon, Amber, Aaron, Jeffery, Jennifer, Jacob, Kristen, Austee, Baylee, Kendra, Kaleb, Keely, Samantha, Josiah, Ryan, Alexandra, Christopher, Grace, Austin, Jarom, Alyra, Sheyenne, Cooper, Rylee;

and 25 great grandchildren.

He is also survived by his brotherís two sons, Howard and Mike.

Marvin and Catherine operated a ranch east of Powers Lake after the death of Julius and his only brother Howard. In the early 50ís, Marvin ran a water hauling business in Tioga. The boom of the oil field enticed him to move his growing family there.

Disaster struck and a couple of years later, he returned to farming although it was not his preferred profession. He remained on the farm until the late 70ís and then moved to Williston, followed by Sioux City IA and finally Dickinson. After leaving the farm, his passions were cattle buying, his inventions, and driving an 18 wheeler.

Marvinís love of animals, his ambition, loyalty to friends and belief that family and education were the keys to success are life values his family adopted.

His childhood lives on in the stories he told about he and his brotherís antics growing up on the ranch; it was a wonder, they lived to adulthood. His children carried on in the same tradition, not letting him know half of what they were up to. Marvin made friends easily and could talk to anyone and everyone. His creativity, practical problem solving and inventions are legendary including the air wrench, the sea turtle, the horse riding lift system, cord retractor and the portable personal smokeless ashtray.

He felt deeply, always had a story and lived life on his own terms. He will be missed by his special friend Colleen Hipler, the staff and residents at St. Lukeís and his family.

Preceding Marvin in death were his parents; brother, Howard and sister-in-law, Mary nee Henjum; sons, Jeffery and Jerry; grandchildren, Chase and Tucker; and son-in-law, Donavan Eide.

Funeral service was at St. James Catholic Church, Powers Lake, 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 25, followed by interment at St. James Catholic Cemetery, Powers Lake.
