Obituary for Donald Roland Anderson

Donald Roland Anderson, longtime resident of Fraser, died peacefully surrounded by the love of his family on June 8, 2022. He was 75 years of age.

Donald was born in Detroit, Michigan, on May 17, 1947, son of the late John and Margaret (Paulausky) Anderson. He served our country honorably in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. Don married his best friend, Claudia Ann Barrett, on August 21, 1993, in Roseville. The couple made their home in Fraser. Don became a Sub-Contractor; and was the proud owner and operator of Consumer Home Improvements. He was a hard-working man and always had a helping hand to give. Don absolutely loved fishing and enjoyed his warm summer months tending to his vegetable garden and his beautiful flower gardens. He enjoyed traveling and always looked forward to his next camping trip. Don also enjoyed golfing and listening to Tigers and Lions games on the radio. He had a wonderful singing voice, loved karaoke and was known as “Country Don.” Don was a fun, happy go lucky kind of guy who always saw the good in everyone. He always would smile and share a joke or two, leaving everyone in stitches. Above all, Don was a family man, who cherished every moment shared in their company, especially those grandchildren of his. He will always be known for his quick wit, his honesty and integrity. Don will be deeply missed, and his light will always glow in our hearts forever.

Don is the devoted and loving husband of Claudia; dearest father of Donna Anderson-Holton and Mathew (Jen) Anderson; dear stepfather of Jessica Klotz; cherished grandfather of Jonathon, Hayden, Ryan, Trevor and Ava; and beloved brother of Raymond (Sharon) Anderson.

A Celebration of Donald’s life will be held at the Infinity Hall, 16650 E. 14 Mile Road, Fraser on Tuesday, June 21, 2022. The gathering will start at 5pm with a full military service and sharing at 6pm , and then dinner to follow.
