In Memory of James 'Sam' Anderson

June 30, 1942 - August 7, 2022

James (Sam) Anderson passed away August 7th with his family by his side.

He was born on June 30th, 1942 in Eau Claire, WI.

Sam attended grade and high schools in Eau Claire. He graduated from Memorial High School in 1960 and went on to graduate from UWEC. He began his employment at Northern States Power Company while attending college and continued working with the company until his retirement from the Hudson office in 1998. Upon retirement, he and his wife Phyllis moved to Cumberland, Wisconsin where he fulfilled his dream to build a retirement home. This was his happy place.

Sam had a unique sense of humor and a knack for remembering jokes. These were enjoyed by his many friends and family. He had a kind nature and a quick wit that led to many friendships throughout his lifetime. Sam bravely fought Lyme’s Disease and its effects for many years, working hard to ensure that it did not interrupt his life. He enjoyed the daily crossword puzzle, hunting, fishing, golf, construction, music (guitar playing), and especially bowling, scoring a 300 game.

Sam was a member of the National Guard – Red Arrow Division- which cultivated an interest in the Civil War, WWI, and WWII establishing a desire to visit the battlegrounds and sites while reading anything he could get his hands on about those time periods.

He is survived by his wife Phyllis (Lamovec) of 56 years and sons Thomas (Dosie), grandchildren Molly, Tom, and John, Kansas City, MO, and Daniel (Joanna), grandchildren Maddie and Isaac, Hudson, WI. His brothers Jerry (Barb) Tx and Richard (Linda), IN. As well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Sam was preceded in death by his parents Chester and Alice Anderson; sister Jean (Pat) Krause and Phyllis’s parents, Henry and Ann Lamovec.

A private Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
