Edward "Eddie" Anderson Jr.

Cedar Rapids

Eddie Anderson Jr. passed away on Feb. 26, 2018.
He was born on June 2, 1947, in Storm Lake, Iowa, to Edward L. Anderson and Thelma Anderson.
Eddie participated in his mother's nursery school in the 1950s and went on to elementary school at Cedar Heights Elementary School in Cedar Falls, Iowa, through the second grade. From there he participated in sheltered workshops in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Eddie enjoyed keeping score while watching baseball on TV with the Cubs being his favorite team, especially when Harry Caray was the announcer. TV and movies, along with eating out at local restaurants, were his favorite activites.
Both his parents and a sister, Kathy Anderson, preceded him in death. He is survived by his brother, John.
A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later time. Donations in his memory can be sent to Camp Courageous.
