David passed away June 9, 2020 at his home in Dickinson.

David was born May 3, 1943, the third child of Elmer and Ruth (Matheney) Anderson. He grew up on the family farm that was homesteaded in 1908 south of Regent, ND. He attended grade school at Alden Township School and graduated with the first class from the newly-built Regent High School in 1961. From a young age, he always knew he was called to be a caretaker of the land and carry on the legacy of the family farm. He and his brother, James Anderson, took over the farm when their father had a stroke and David was just 19 years old.

David attended college at NDSU in Fargo, attending only half of each school year due to springtime farming at home. After nine winter quarters, he was a proud graduate with a BS in Ag Economics. He continued to farm with his brother Jim until 1998 and added son Mark into the operation in 1993, later retiring from the farm in 2004.

During the Vietnam War, David joined the North Dakota National Guard for six years and was proud to fulfill his time in the service. Although it was very difficult to be in the service while farming, he managed to serve and keep the farm going with the help of his brother and a hired man.

March 25, 1972, at age 28, David was united in marriage with Marie Outka at St. John Lutheran in Dickinson. He said that was the best decision of his life. He adored his children, Sonya and Mark. Mark would become Dave’s future hired man, third partner in the farm business and eventual boss.

David was the glue of the family that held everyone together and he was very proud of all his family members. He especially cherished attending and experiencing his grandchildren’s activities and accomplishments. He was a very thoughtful, patient and considerate man who will be deeply missed.

David was especially active over the years in various organizations and clubs such as Farm Credit Services, where he served for 25 years. He was also very involved and loved serving in the Shriner’s, Rotary, Elks, Masons, Church Council, Hettinger County Wheat Commission, Hettinger County Weed Board, Hettinger County Crop Improvement Board, Cenex Board and American Legion throughout the years. He was a valuable asset to each of these organizations.

A very skilled woodworker, David enjoyed many types of wood projects including building cabinetry for their home, as well as creating and assembling model airplanes and cars. He adored reading, especially history books. Farming was more than a job, it was a love he had his entire life. He and Marie traveled extensively throughout the world, treasuring the memories they made. He enjoyed skiing and hunting in his younger years. Dave truly enjoyed his coffee groups, exercising and socializing at the rec center, car club and especially taking part in his grandchildren’s activities.

David is survived by his wife, Marie of 48 yrs; daughter, Sonya (Casey) Binstock of Mandan; son, Mark (Jill) Anderson of Regent; brother, Jim Anderson, of Dickinson; grandchildren, Char Binstock of Bismarck, Nick Binstock of Florida, Alex Binstock of Mandan, Sydnee Anderson and Tanner Anderson of Regent; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Ruth Anderson; sister, Beverly Hanson; sister-in-law, Rosella Anderson; grandson, Wyatt Anderson.

The family suggests that memorials be made to Badlands Ministries - 3892 Bible Camp Road Medora, ND 58645 - or Heartland Hospice - 30 7th St W Dickinson, ND 58601.

Dear Marie,
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family! We were very sorry to hear about David's passing. He was a kind and gentle man. We have fond memories of him when we were past members of St. John in Dickinson and when I lived in Regent many years ago. We were blessed to have known the Anderson family! Cherish the memories! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time! We are so fortunate to be able to join you virtually this afternoon for his memorial service!
May God be with you!
Bonnie (Zander) & Don Ficek

Marie, Sonya and Mark- My thoughts have been with you a lot the last few days. I wish I could join you for the service today. The Anderson family has always been great neighbors with a long history on both the Olson and Lien side of the family for us. David has taken the time over the last few years to send me several very nice emails talking of life, changes to the neighborhood and general family updates and I will miss the occasional note. Look forward to stopping in for a visit the next opportunity I have when in Regent.

Sincerely, Jon Sperl
