Obituary for Bruce W. Anderson

Bruce W. Anderson, 68, of Merrill, passed away Thursday, July 1, 2021, at Pine Crest Nursing Home, Merrill, Wisconsin.

Bruce was born March 17, 1953, in Crosby, North Dakota, son of the late Leonard and Peggy (Bixby) Anderson. Bruce met Ellen Gunderson while they both attended Mayville State College in Mayville, North Dakota. They were married on August 11, 1974, at Grue Lutheran Church in Buxton, North Dakota. Bruce and Ellen had a relationship that lasted more than fifty years and Bruce had been Ellen’s rock during her entire adult life. They enjoyed many ‘date nights’ together.

Bruce began his educational career in the fall of 1976 in Fisher, Minnesota. He left Fisher in 1990 and moved to Wisconsin to continue working in education administration. He had the pleasure of serving several Wisconsin school districts.
Bruce had a strong faith. He was a faithful servant of God, family, and the community. He had learned from his father the importance of time in the bible and time in prayer.
