May 3, 1963 — November 11, 2023

Barry “Omar” Anderson, 60, of Fergus Falls, died Saturday, November 11, 2023 at Sanford in Fargo.

The last couple of years he enjoyed his time with special friends at the Sugar Shack, cooking maple syrup.

Preceding him in death were his father, Floyd, and brothers, Hartley and Brian.
