Eric Anderson Obituary, Death – Eric Anderson, 59, passed away on October 27, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. Eric Anderson, the son of Dean and Patricia (Lewandowski) Anderson, was born, if an an a. After the little family moved to Appleton, Eric spent his early years there and was engaged in both Cub and Boy Scouts. After graduating from Appleton East High School, where he excelled in debate and forensics, he went on to earn bachelor’s degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin Madison, as well as a master’s in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
After completing his studies, Eric moved to Milwaukee. He decided to start his own business in that industry after some time spent working for various specialized chemical corporations to try his hand at running things himself. Eric fell in love with music at a young age. Along with playing electric and acoustic guitar, he also played trumpet. He enjoyed listening to various genres of music, but his favorite was rock and roll, both “old school” classic rock and modern rock. We shall always remember Eric for his wicked sense of humor, “colorful” vocabulary, and singing prowess. Cooking was another one of Eric’s interests and skills.
He enjoyed cooking for his friends and family, and once he even made Christmas dinner. He demonstrated his love of others not just by cooking meals for his family, but also by being a generous and compassionate guy. Eric was a seasoned traveler who has visited France, Germany, England, the Netherlands, and Jamaica, to name a few. He cherished the true tranquility he felt while in Jamaica and thoroughly enjoyed his stay there. Eric is survived by his daughters Jennifer and Rebecca, mother Pat, sister Dawn, nieces Allison and Emma, as well as other aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. He is also survived by his ex-spouse Sheila. Milo and Axel, his two devoted canines, are still alive and will terribly miss his affections. His paternal grandparents Carol and Lois Anderson, his father Dean, and his maternal grandparents Richard and Adda Lewandowski all went away before him.
