Don was born on September 16, 1928, in Wyoming, MN, to Samuel Victor Anderson and Helen (Nickel) Anderson. During the depression, the family moved to Clearwater, MN, and eventually to Compton Township.

They had three daughters, Victoria (Robert Drake), Deborah (Steve Kolb), and Danielle.

He was employed by the Minneapolis Star and Tribune in March of 1951 and retired in 1991. He worked for Minnesota Motor Company, delivering vehicles part-time for several years after that.

Golf was a passion, and he was president of the golf board for several years. He also was a member of the Elks for many years. He became a member of Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in 1978, and was very active. For twenty-five years he was sexton for St. Otto’s Cemetery.
