Richard C. Anderson, 48, of Keosauqua, Iowa, formerly of Chatfield and Austin, died Dec. 3, 2002 in Summit, S.D., when the semi-truck he was driving slid off a bridge during inclement weather and into the path of an oncoming train.

He was born July 14, 1954, in Austin, grew up and graduated from high school in Chatfield, and attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. He married Deborah Taylor on Nov. 13, 1981, in Custer, S.D., the city where he spent most of his adult life. He'd also lived in the West Indies and in Montana. His family had moved to Keosauqua in 2000. Mr. Anderson had been a logger and operated a carpet cleaning business and had recently started as a driver for Werner Transportation of Omaha. He was a member of Fairfield Jehovah's Witnesses.

Survivors include his wife; three daughters, Shoshannah, Nakomis and Pasque; and two sons, Uriah and Seth. All of the children live in Keosauqua.
