Richard John Anderson

May 8, 1931 — September 9, 2023

St. George, Utah

Richard John Anderson (age 92) peacefully passed away on September 9, 2023.

Richard was born to John Edward and Viola Ruth Anderson on May 8, 1931, in Duluth, Minnesota. He had 1 brother (Kenneth Anderson) and 1 Sister (Evelyn Setter). 

Richard married the love of his life, Barbara Fasbender, on July 21, 1951. Richard and Barbara had 1 daughter, Beverly. Beverly and her husband Allen blessed them with 3 grandchildren, Jeff (Erin), Rochelle (Alex) and Jessica. Their posterity continued to grow with 8 grandchildren (Kaitlyn, Kaleb, Kylie, Andrea, Tyler, Hadley, Ella & Colton). Their family was their greatest joy in life!

Richard worked for the Duluth Railway from 1949-1952. In 1952, Richard & Barbara loaded up their 1948 Chrysler New Yorker and a trailer and moved to Fontana, CA where Richard worked at Kaiser Steel until 1983.

Richard spent his retirement enjoying his lapidary hobby and he & Barbara were members of the Kaiser Rock Club. Richard and Barbara were well known throughout the community for their volunteer work with the Fontana Unified School District, the Fontana Police Department, Fontana Gridiron Club, National Night Out, Neighborhood Watch and as a Senior Volunteer for the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. He was always available to bring his tools to help a neighbor or friend.

Richard will be greatly missed by his family and friends, but we know there is a great Heavenly Reunion and Richard & Barbara are “Together Again”.

Richard was preceded in death by his wife Barbara, his parents, his sister Evelyn and her husband Harold, his Sister-in-law Corrine, & his Grandson Jeff Terry.
