Obituary for Todd Anderson

Todd Michael Anderson, age 54, passed away peacefully on January 19, 2022, after a short illness with cancer and other complications at Madison University Hospital after a seven week stay in ICU. Todd was born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on February 19, 1967. He resided in Oshkosh all his life. Todd did side painting jobs in his earlier years and then became disabled at 47 years old and could no longer work. Todd enjoyed his Chicago Cub and Green Bay Packer games, fishing and cookouts.

Todd is survived by his wife of 24 years, Dawn Anderson of Oshkosh; son, Alex Anderson of Oshkosh; daughter, Jennifer Wolfe of Elwell, Michigan; sister, Angela (Angie) Ewald of Fond du Lac; step-daughters: Destiny Hoefs of Oshkosh and Cassandra Hoefs of Manitowoc; step-sister, Valerie (Bob) Hinz of Waupaca; step-brothers: Scott, Brian, and Brent Bantleon, all of Oshkosh; step-mother, Jackie Anderson of Omro; nephew, Ryan Carder of Fond du Lac; niece, Brittany Carder of Fond du Lac; great-niece, Harmony Carder of Oshkosh; great-nephew, Aadyn Inocelda of Fond du Lac; three granddaughters: Sherri, Janessa and Lauren Wolfe of Elwell, Michigan; his favorite cousin and best buddy, Kelly (Toby) Reischl of Appleton; and numerous relatives and friends, too many to mention.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Carolyn S. Anderson Zamzow in 2007; father, Arden Anderson in 2016; grandparents: Mae Rackow, Grant White, and Frank and Evelyn Anderson; and aunt, Beverly Ford.

As per his wishes, he will be cremated with no service. There will be a celebration of life for him in June.

We’d like to thank the I.C.U. staff, especially “Kirsten,” for their caring help during his seven week stay and for making him comfortable.


You gave no one a last farewell,
Nor ever said good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
A million times we will miss you,
a million times we will cry.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
no one else can fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you,
the day God took you home.
We will meet again someday, I know in a better place.
I thank God he made you my brother, while you were here on earth.
Til we meet again my little brother, I love you,
Love Sissy, Angie

They say there is a reason:

They say there is a reason, they say that time we heal,
but neither time nor reason, will change the way I feel.
For no one knows the heartache, that lies behind our smiles,
No one knows how many times we have broken down and cried.
We want to tell you something, so there won’t be any doubt.
You’re so wonderful to think of, but so hard to be without.

Love your wife and kids,
Dawn, Alex, Jennifer, Destiny, Cassandra
