Carlyle “Butch” Leroy Anderson was born on February 20, 1944, in Echo, to Clarence “Casey” and Florence (Hagen) Anderson. Butch grew up in Belview, was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, and graduated from Belview High School in 1962. After high school, he moved to Minneapolis to work for General Mills. He moved back home to help his dad with carpentry. On July 11, 1964, Butch was united in marriage to Janet Kasten at Peace Lutheran Church in Echo. The couple was blessed with four children, Joy, Jill, Dan, and Julie. Butch worked as an electrician for Hegdahl Electric and Anderson Electric for 32 years, then worked for Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative until his retirement in 2009. Butch was a member of the Belview Fire Department, Ambulance, and Booster Club for 26 years. Butch was very involved with Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, serving as an usher for many years.
Butch was proud of his cabin in the woods, having prepared the land and built the cabin himself. The family spent many summer nights camping and spending time around the bonfire. Butch spent free time hunting and fishing with his son, family, and friends. Butch enjoyed Don Williams and the Statler Brothers, old time music, and going to blue grass festivals. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and just having a good time, including meeting with his “coffee club.”
Butch died on Monday, February 1, 2021, at Carris Healthcare and Therapy Suites in Willmar, surrounded by his loving wife and children. He is survived by his wife Janet; children Joy Anderson, Jill Anderson, Dan (Melissa) Anderson, and Julie (Kevin) Brent; grandchildren Brady, Hunter, Connor, Breanna, Kaylee, and Caden; siblings Twyla (Jim) Bavier, Bill (Kim) Anderson, Christine (Roger) Huseby, Frannie (Glenn) Schmitz; in-laws Duane (Donna) Kasten, Dennis (Lorraine) Kasten, Marilyn (Arnie) Tietz, Irene Abrahamson (Steve Griffin), and Bob Abrahamson.

Blessed be his memory.
