Daniel Richard Anderson died unexpectedly at age 55 on Dec. 1, 2011, at his home in Minneapolis.

He led a bright and engaged life on his own terms.
He was preceded into eternal adventures by his father and mother, Harold and Eleanor, and his sister Margaret Ann. He is survived by his brother, Gary, and sister-in-law, Allison, and their children, Danny and Kate, of Lincoln, Mass., and sister Mary Lynn Anderson and brother-in-law Harold Kennedy of Rye, N.H.
