Obituary for Jon Ove Anderson

Jon Ove Anderson was born on July 12, 1954 in Ames to Floyd and Alice (Ritland) Anderson. He was a member of Bergen Lutheran Church. Jon enjoyed quarter horses and showed them in Halter, Pleasure and Showmanship classes, receiving many trophies over the years. After graduating from Roland-Story High School and attending DMACC, Jon was engaged in farming, working for the Roland Coop, running Big A’s, spreading fertilizer, repainting tractors and welding. Jon was a caregiver for his dad for many years. He moved to Garner, Iowa and was employed by I.M.T. where he excelled for several years as a welder until the battle with cancer brought him to Story City, where his best friend Diane Swenson provided living quarters and excellent care until his last days at Hospice House.
Jon passed away February 16, 2018 at Israel Family Hospice House in Ames at the age of 63.
He is survived by a sister, Faye Ann Chappell of Pittsboro, IN and her daughter, Alicia; a brother, Allen (JoNann) Twedt of Roland and their children, Seth (Renee) Twedt, Wendy (David) Maxon and Michele (Bret) Anderson; several special aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Jon was preceded in death by his parents.
