Roger Allen Andersen, age 87 of Buffalo, MN, died peacefully on April 30, 2024 after courageously battling dementia for nearly 5 years.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents; and Donna, his loving wife of 61 years. Roger is survived his four children: Jory (Robert) Rohlin, Tara (Joel) Partridge, Staci (John) Scherber, and Joel (Sheila) Andersen; his 20 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.

Roger served our country as an officer in the Coast Guard prior to embarking on a 30+ year career in the electric power supply industry. After retiring, Roger remained active with multiple construction projects, which included building a 3-car garage completely by himself. Roger also enjoyed diving, swimming, roller skating, working out, and tearing up the dance floor with his wife Donna any time jazz music started playing. While hanging out with family and friends, Roger was known to enjoy drinking a good scotch or glass of wine.  Roger was always driven to learn new things. As such, he spent a lot of time reading.

Per Roger’s wishes there will be no formal memorial service.  Buffalo, MN will be his final resting place.

Arrangements have been entrusted to The Peterson Chapel of Buffalo. Online condolences for the family may be directed to www.thepetersonchapel.com

    You are in my heart. I know how tough it is to care for a loved one with dementia . Your mom was a great friend to me at the elementary school and your dad was an excellent baseball ump-always teaching the kids at the same time. Celebrate family-you all meant a lot to your dad

    My condolences to the entire Anderson family. It was my pleasure working with your Dad for many years getting BALL organized. Your family was very special as I watched you grow from childhood to adulthood, as well as working several years with your Mom. Sending prayers of friendship.
    May Roger Rest in Peace.
