Kenneth ‘Kenny’ A. Anderson, 77

Kenneth "Kenny" A. Anderson passed peacefully into the hands of his Lord on Oct. 10, 2012, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

He was 77 years old.

Kenny was born Nov. 30, 1934, in Milwaukee, the son of Edwin and Julianne "Julia" Grudzielanek Anderson. From 1956 to 1958, Kenny proudly served his country in the U.S. Army in Korea. On Sept. 2, 1961, he was united in marriage with Carolyn "Honey" Maier in Oconomowoc. Kenny was a salesman at Kennedy Chrysler/Plymouth in Milwaukee from the day it opened until the day it closed. He later worked at Dodge City in Wauwatosa, where he retired in January of 1998.

Kenny was a member of Trinity Freistadt Church in Mequon. He had enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, archery and photography. He was a skilled woodworker, and built many car models. His family will always remember him as "Mr. Fix It" and his ability to fix anything around the house. Above all, Kenny loved being with his family and friends, and was especially proud of the fact that his three sons are the best of friends. He was an avid traveler, and enjoyed spending his vacations with his loved ones.

Kenny is survived by his wife of 51 years, Carolyn "Honey" of Mequon; and their three sons, Brett (Kim) of Princeton and their children Joe (Laura) and Jake; Kirk (Jane) of Mequon and their children Ian and Shea; and Wade of Port Washington. He is further survived by his sister, Charlotte (Max) Heise of Port Washington; brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

A memorial service was held at noon on Monday, Oct. 15, at Trinity Freistadt, 10729 W. Freistadt Road, Mequon. He was laid to rest at the parish cemetery. The family received visitors at the church on Monday morning from 10:30 a.m. to noon. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the Technology or Tuition Funds at Trinity Freistadt School.

The family would like to thank the staff of Gentiva Hospice for their loving care and support.
