Roland “Ron” Anderson In Memory Of Your Birthday
Roland “Ron” Anderson
Place of birth: Hyannis, NE
Roland “Ron” Franklin Anderson, Dad, Papa, husband, friend to many, and the world’s biggest optimist, left this life peacefully on January 31, 2018 in Paso Robles, California. Ron loved to be around his family and friends his whole life. He was always the life of the party, quick with his newest joke or a hilarious quip fitting for the moment. We all will miss his infectiously happy and gentle disposition, and his ability to light up a room with his larger than life smile and gregarious personality. Ron loved a gathering of family and friends that involved great food and wine, a game of cribbage or gin, and time for a funny story or two. Ron was born on the family ranch in Hyannis in the Sandhills of Nebraska on April 21, 1933. His parents, Lewis and Cerena Chausse, sisters Irene and Lorene, brothers Lewis “Bud” and Hubert, all predeceased Ron. Ron is survived by his family: Teri Anderson Hillier (Tad), Camilla Anderson (Debbie) (daughters), Steven (Karen) (son), their mother Carita Anderson; Paula Anderson, (wife) and Christopher Miller (son); eight grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, as well as many wonderful nieces and nephews and their families. Ron grew up during the great depression, but he said “you’d never know it because we lived like kings on the ranch!” After graduating from Hyannis High School, Ron went on to graduate from the University of Nebraska -Go Big Red! He became an officer and an aviator in the Navy for many years. After his Naval career, Ron became a stock and commodity broker in Los Angeles in 1962. He successfully served his clients and raised a family in La Canada, California until retiring in 2012. He moved to Paso Robles, California in 2014 to enjoy the beautiful Central Coast where he quickly made friends and enjoyed his time.
