Duane R. “Andy” Anderson, age 87, died on Thursday, January 18, 2018, at the Sunset Hospice Cottage in Worthington, MN. Duane was born on June 5, 1930, in Worthington, MN to Edwin and Ruby (Jacobson) Anderson. He lived in Worthington his entire life. In 1948, he graduated from Worthington High School. Duane was united in marriage to Bertha W. Lubben, on April 25, 1950, at the St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Worthington.
Duane was a loving and faithful husband. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. He was a grandpa to many day care kids. Throughout his life he was devoted to God. Reading devotions was important to him. He was active in his church where he served as Sunday school superintendent. He worked for the Ford garage, Allis Chalmers businesses, and was dedicated to working for others. His talent was being able to fix anything with an engine: Allis Chalmers tractors, cars and trucks. He owned Andy’s 66 Towing and Repair, and the Gateway Standard Station. He attended tractor shows with his children to see his favorite Allis Chalmers tractors. Andy was a racing fan who cheered on his son and friends who raced motorcycles and cars. He was a committed NASCAR fan for over 20 years. He will be remembered as being a Good Samaritan to everyone even strangers.
