  1. Mark was a big part of my life growing up. I am so sorry for your loss and wish you all peace during this difficult time.

  2. My Condolences to Mark’s Family.

    Mark was a longtime, young age friend to me and a lot of people. We did Messiah Lutheran Church Sunday School & Cherub Choir (Mark’s Mom was the choir director), Washington Elementary School, Fargo Parks Baseball, White Earth Lutheran Bible Camps, Ben Franklin Junior High School, Messiah Lutheran Confirmation & retreats, Fargo North High School. From there everyone did their own 1,000 points of light and scattered! You could always count on Mark for a positive outlook on everything! What a Great Guy to have as a Friend!

    • Tom and Sandie Bonnett

      Mark was my Attorney for many years, and more importantly my dear friend. He was a very special person, I trusted him , his honesty and integrity were beyond reproach. His sense of humor and incredible personality, just talking or meeting him for lunch, I will deeply miss. His smile was contagious. The world was a better place with him in it. To Jeri, Christine and all of his family, my profound sympathy and condolences.

    Very sorry for you loss

    • I met Mark when I first got into the car business, we hit it off right away and became desk mates. From that day forward we became lifelong friends and buddies. Mark was one of a kind, from his one liners, quick comebacks to his ability to fix anything that requires a tool. A great Father, Husband, Brother, Son and Friend, Mark was absolutely the best! My deepest sympathies to Jeri and the family on your immeasurable loss, may he Rest In Peace

  4. Jeri, I am a chilhood friend of Marks from Fargo. We met many years ago and shared Christmas cards with your beautiful family early on. Even though we lost touch with Mark i know what a special guy he was and how much he loved his family. I am sooo sorry and have been praying for your family. May our good Lord hold u up and give u strength during the upcoming weeks and beyond. God’s peace and love to u all, Amy (Leitner)Tronsgard

  5. Jeri,
    My deepest condolences to you and yours with Mark’s passing. I spent a lot of time with Mark as a lad; he was a great friend. He will be missed.
    My prayers are with you.

  6. Mark has been a friend of mine since 3rd grade and all the way through high school and after we graduated. In grade school, Mark was our strongest baseball player coach. He was a very excellent athlete in life. His death brings sorrow to me, but I totally believe he is living in Heaven with our lord and Savior, Jesus.

  7. Jeri and family, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayers to all of you.

  8. To all of Mark’s family I send my deepest condolences. He was one of my best friends growing up. Played sports together and had a lot of good times. His family was always welcoming to all of his friends. He was always a sounding board for advice and friendship. My thoughts are with you all and hope to see you soon. Your friend Blaine

      My sympathy to Mark’s family. I am guessing I met Mark in 1st grade when I moved to 18 th Avenue in Fargo. We loved just a few houses away. We were childhood friends, belonged to the same church and in the same High School Class of 1980.
      Blessings to all of you during this difficult time

  9. My sympathies to the entire Anderson family. I am so privileged to have intersected with the Andersons, who have been a presence throughout my life—though from afar at times. There has always been a bond, established through church, through Boy Scouts, through school and through the north side neighborhood that nurtured all of us. Very sorry for Mark’s family, the extended Anderson family, and all the friends, associates and acquaintances who Mark no doubt touched during his life and career. . .

  10. Sharron (Sam Mikula) Carmell

    I am another 1980 classmate of Marks… I remember he always had a big smile on his face and always had kind words for everyone. He will be missed at the reunion by many. May your happy memories of him get you through this time of sadness. You are all in my prayers..…Sam Mikula

  12. My condolences to Jeri and the entire Anderson family. I feel very fortunate to have had Andy as my friend. I was lucky to have grown up a part of Andy’s little gang. I have many wonderful memories of Andy’s family and their home. Also I have great memories of spending time with Andy at Elephant Park, camping and playing baseball (Muscatell Manglers).
    You will be missed by many – Rest In Peace.

  13. Barbara Ferguson

    Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to all of your family.

  14. Michelle Watson & Heidi Kostelac

    Our deepest sympathies to the entire family. Although we both have only known Mark as our attorney for a short while he has made a lasting impact on us both. He was a wonderful human, we loved everything about him.

    We will deeply miss him. We send our prayers to the entire family during this difficult time.

  15. Carol and Brian Feight

    Jeri and Family – I’m so sorry for your loss. Although I didn’t know Mark well, I know the tremendous impact he had on his family’s life. He had been a rock for Arlene and my father-in-law JJ Feight. His love and support for them (and yours too, of course) over the years has created a bond with the Andersons that we Feight children will never forget. Our deepest sympathies.

  16. Hugs and Sympathy for the whole family!

  17. Martha and Chris Nowatzki

    Our families were (barely) grown when Mark’s dad and our mom died and when Arlene and JJ began their lives together. I was a childhood friend of Julie’s and have loved reconnecting. In recent years, as my dad has struggled with health problems, Mark and Jeri’s love and care for my dad and Arlene have put a giant lump in my throat multiple times—especially in the past few months. My dad may not be able to express how much he loved Mark but it is crystal clear in his eyes and his voice. Thank you so much Jeri. Our hearts break for you and your family. We hope you can, with time, find your way back to the laughter and joyful memories.

  18. Julie Ann Walvatne

    My deepest heartfelt sympathies to Jeri and the whole Anderson family! I went to school with Mark and he always was such a genuinely kind soul. He always had a smile on his face and happiness radiated from his spirit! He will be missed at the reunion! You’re in my thoughts and prayers and may God’s loving arms wrap you in his mercy and grace thru these difficult days! God Bless You All!
    Lovingly ,
    Julie Ann Walvatne

  19. Mark will be missed by all of us at the Prior Lake Chamber and the Prior Lake legal field won’t feel the same without him. Seems unfair to lose such a great man much too early. We will send prayers and hope for his family and friends to lift them up during this sad time.

  20. Beautiful words for an awesome man and family. Jan and I send our condolences and continued hugs and prayers.

  21. Anderson Family, we are truly saddened to hear of Mark’s passing. He was such a nice man. Our thoughts are with all of you at this time. The Miks Family (George, Steph, Sheldon and Makayla)

  22. My sincere condolences to the family – we certainly appreciate the respect Mark extended to my father when creating his will. God Bless all of you.

  23. Ann Lindblom Keenan

    I knew Mark from Fargo North, both of us ended up at Concordia…in a lot of Political Science classes together, and we had the same birthday. He was a really nice guy. My deepest sympathy to the family.

  24. Kari Larson Teschendorf

    I had the privilege of growing up in North Fargo with a cast of characters, Mark “Andy” Anderson had a leading role. I have and will always have fond memories of Andy and cherish the loyalty among our friends. He was big, loud, opinionated, relentless but fair …we had a lot in common! I regret never observing him in the courtroom as I suspect he carried those traits throughout his life.
    Mark was a cherished friend.
    My deepest sympathies to his family,

  25. I got really sad when i heard this tragic news today my sincere condolences to the Anderson s Family i met him at his office over 20 years ago and he gave us the best advices always. My brother and I had too much respect for him ,he was someone special for us.God bless you Mark and your family we will miss you!!

  26. Bill Gonzalez Jr.

    I got to know Mark years ago while selling cars together. I recall his rigorous studying to become an attorney at the time. We kept in touch on and off for many years and his advice was invaluable. I pray for the repose of his soul and may God Bless his family during this time of loss.

  27. Jeri and Family I lived across elephant park on 19 the Ave and was best friends growing up with Mark. As time went on best friends has a title I’d have to share with many more people because Mark was that kind of guy. Mark was a leader and being that had a big following wether that was Boy Scouts, Sports or Just hanging out with friends. Even though we may have lost you h over the years it leaves a big hole in my heart to hear of his passing I cannot imagine what it’s been for you and your family. I pass on to you my deepest sympathies. May the love that pours out to all of the Anderson’s give you all a reassuring peace and embrace you in your loss.

  28. Markie Mark, one of my best friends, a guy that I will love to the day I leave this earth. One of the nicest and kind heart young man you could ever meet. So long my friend, Love Ya. Jerri keep your head up, I can’t imagine what you are going through you. Mark was well talked about in the Richardson household. We are praying for you and your family. God knows your pain, Greg & Alfreda Richardson

  29. Teresa and Dave Affeldt

    Our condolences to you Jeri and all of your family our hearts go out to all of you. Mark was an incredible outstanding human being and a TRUE friend to so many. He was a GREAT friend of ours starting back in the car business. He also gave our family good legal counsel and we gladly recommend him to many others. RIP Mark you will always be loved. Prayers and ((HUGS)) to all of you.

  30. Dre and Jay Gustafson

    We are devastated hearing the news of Mark’s passing. We enjoyed kicking back a couple Mich Golden Lights to talk about family, neighborhood stuff, politics (Dre), home projects and sports.
    He was so proud of his family and his grandson. Taken far too soon but he will never be forgotten.

  31. I am truly sorry to hear of Mark’s passing. I pray for God’s strength and comfort in this time.
    Gary Gilbert

  33. Sincere prayers and sympathy to you all. Mark will be remembered fondly by everyone who came into his orbit. What a good guy.

    May God’s grace give you comfort and know you are being lifted up in prayer.

  34. I am so sorry for your loss. I had only one or two cases with Mark over the years, but he was a true professional and good human being.

  35. Mark truly made a difference in so many lives. I am thankful to have had the opportunity of knowing him and sharing great conversations through the years.
    I am deeply sorrowed by this loss.
    Please accept my warmest condolences during this difficult time.

  36. Although it’s been 30 years since our last contact, Andy and I shared some indelible memories and events. We were teammates at North and Concordia on the offensive line and were roommates freshman year at Concordia East Complex dorm. We would have pretty heated discussions on politics and culture and current events even though we usually agreed on those things! I told him before graduation that he would either be a lawyer or used car salesman! When we last connected he admitted I was right on both counts!
    He was incredibly smart and talented. I know he will be missed by all.

  37. Roxanne C. Shaughnessy

    I was stunned when hearing of Mark’s passing. I am so very saddened by your loss. Mark and I had several cases together and I had known him as a fellow attorney for quite a few years. This is a tremendous loss to our legal community, and he shall be fondly remembered.

    I send your family my deepest sympathies.

  38. We are so sorry to hear of Mark’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. My daughter Kelly played youth hockey with Emma years ago and I always enjoyed chatting with Mark around the ice arena.

  39. Franco Lopez and Family

I hope time and the universe in all it’s wisdom graces you and the family with the strength to heal from this and carry on the way he would want you to continue. May his warm memory live forever in the hearts of all whose lives he touched and forever changed. I’m really sorry for your loss Alex, sending you a BIG virtual hug.

  40. I was blessed to work with Mark as a boss and coworker back in the car business, also lucky enough to have his talents as a realtor and lawyer help me later in life. Most of all , he was a friend . Thanks for all the games of hoops in my driveway, RIP my friend.

  41. James Weingarten

  42. Karen Young Trenne

    My deepest sympathy to your family. Mark was a classmate at Fargo North as well as a fellow confirmand at Messiah Lutheran. I pray that the promises of Jesus and his resurrection give you hope and comfort in this time of grief.

  43. My deep condolences to Jeri & Entire Anderson family , I had the opportunity to become good friends of Marks since summer of 5th grade when I also played on the Mangler’s and what a group of friend evolved from that as Andy was the king pin of the gang . I kept in touch with Andy where every time we talked it was like we never missed a beat . Honest, loyal , trustworthy , leader, winner,true friend, & straight to the point. Crushed is the word I use when hearing of his passing . Rest in peace old buddy .

  44. Mark, you changed my life for the better. You fought for me and my family in countless ways. I could truly call you a friend. My memories are full of your heartfelt kindness and you will be with me forever. To your family, your husband and father is one of the greatest men I have ever known and he loved and talked about you every time I was with him. Keep his memories alive in you each day and may God bless you all

  45. I was shocked to read about mark’s passing in the paper he and Christine helped us get our will and estate in order I’d like offer my condolences to his wife and family and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  46. We were shocked to just learn of Mark’s passing. He represented us in a couple court matters. We met with him several times to discuss our legal issues, then would hang around and shoot the breeze for a couple extra hours — free of charge! He was an excellent attorney and an even better man. He often told me to stop by sometime and we’d have coffee. Our deepest sympathy to his family.

  47. Roberta Loeffler

    Hi Jeri and family,

    I was so very sorry to learn of Mark’s passing. My heartfelt condolences to all of you . After reading his obituary, it was obvious to all what an exceptional father, husband, grandfather, and friend he was to all. I remember him as a kind and funny man, who always seemed to be doing something to insure that his family had many fond memories and experiences ( I. E. , Halloween displays, playhouse, sports, etc.) It’s been many years since our years in Burnsville together, but I always remember ,fondly, the Anderson family, and my thoughts are with you all.

  48. Debbie Winzenburg

    Kevin, so very sorry to hear this devastating news.
    Our prayers are with you and your family.
    Debbie and Jim Winzenburg

  49. Shocking news. Sorry for your loss.

  50. Kecia Softing Freed

    This is so, so very sad and such a shock! I grew up with Mark at Messiah Lutheran and Washington Elementary on through high school. The Andersons were such an iconic family in our childhood years, it feels like someone in our family has died. Love and prayers to all of you.
