Sidney E. Anderson, son of C. Melvin and Clara (Loe) Anderson, was born April 11, 1928 in Sioux County, Iowa. Sidney was one of twelve children who grew up on the family farm in rural Hudson and graduated from Canton High School. After graduating he worked on the farm and joined the 147th Field Artillery Army National Guard.

He was united in marriage to Violet Thompson on April 5, 1951 and a son and daughter were born. In 1955 the family relocated to California and Sid pursued a career as a research and development engineer with Cherry Textron in the aerospace industry.

In his free time, Sidney enjoyed playing the stand-up bass with various big bands and polka bands throughout southern California. He enjoyed various hobbies such as music, gardening, and machinist work. In 1993, Sidney and Violet returned to South Dakota to retire and enjoy being near family.

Grateful for having shared his life are his wife, a son and daughter, four grandchildren, two great-granddaughters, and his siblings.

Sidney was preceded in death by his parents and four siblings, Palmer, Clarence, Lorraine and Merle.
