James “Jim” M. Anderson, 78, of Abingdon, IL died peacefully in the early morning of August 29, 2023 at Allure of Lake Storey in Galesburg IL.
Jim was born to Orville G. Anderson and Marian E. Stammer on April 15, 1945 in Canton, IL. Jim went on to grow up in Abingdon where he attended high school. Jim lived a full life and wasn’t afraid of putting in hard work. He worked at Admiral before going on to work at the ADM bean plant. Jim enjoyed working before having a stroke in 1988, but he didn’t let that stop him from living a great life. Jim loved finding himself a good spot to fish and hunting deer. He also collected deer figurines and miniature cars. Jim often farmed and even restored a vintage tractor.
Surviving Jim are his sisters Carol Coursen of Knoxville, IL and Mary J. (Garry) Eklund of Gilson, IL. His son, John Anderson of Galesburg IL. A grandchild Meghan Anderson of Galesburg IL and many nieces and nephews. Also included is his special friend, Ona Younge of Abingdon IL. Jim is preceded in death by his parents and 3 brothers, Jack Anderson, Ralph Anderson and Bobby Pearson.
As Jim requested, cremation will be accorded. An ash-committal service will take place on Saturday, September 2, 2023 in Uniontown Cemetery in Uniontown, IL (Middle Grove) at 10am. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Critter Cove. Online condolences may be made at www.h-p-w.com.
