Timothy James Anderson was born on July 23, 1963 in Stanley, WI, to James F. and Rose M. (Liedl) Anderson. He was raised and received his education in Stanley, graduating from Stanley High School in 1981. After high school, Tim went to work at Halterman's in Stanley, before his marriage to Theresa L. Taylor on October 24, 1987 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Stanley. He later worked as an automotive mechanic for Courtesy Ford in Thorp, and then for the past 26+ years at All Automotive, also in Thorp. Tim was a volunteer fireman for the Thorp Fire Department for many years, and would do anything for anyone, no matter what day or what time.
He had many interests, but especially loved spending time with his children and grandchildren, tinkering on cars, cruising around town, old country western movies, classic country & polka music, shooting pool, truck & tractor pulls, socializing with friends, camping and playing cards.
Tim will be dearly missed by his 2 daughters: Amanda Anderson (Jeff Kobylarczyk) of Thorp, Samantha (Eric) Van Calcar of Thorp; 6 grandchildren: Calli Martin, Braxtin, Emrik and Fintyn Nowobielski, and Aliyah and Gannon Van Calcar; 2 brothers: Dave (Debbie) Anderson of Cadott, Lorry Anderson of Colfax; 4 sisters: Pam (Jeff) Thompson, Peggy (Jerry) Ciokiewicz, Cheryl (Rick) LaMarche, and Cyndi (Don "Buzzy") Burzynski, all of Stanley; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his son, Joshua J. Anderson, on December 23, 2009; one brother, James "Tubby" Anderson, Jr.; and one sister, Patricia LaMarche.
