Black Hawk County

Melvin was born on February 8th, 1912 on a small family farm in Dunkerton, Iowa to John and Myrtle Anderson in rural Black Hawk County. He was a lifetime farmer with a 6th grade education.

At age 26, he married Lila Kruger on March 16, 1938. Lila and Melvin had 3 children, Mary, Glen and Joyce. From his children, they were blessed with 6 grandchildren.

He farmed every day of his life, retiring only 6 years before his death on April 6th, 1994. He was devoted to his wife, children, grandchildren, agriculture and his love for John Deere tractors.

As every loving grandson looks up to his grandpa, I look up to him with the up-most respect, appreciation and admiration. There is never a day that goes by that I donít think of him and remember what fun times we had together. Thank you grandpa for all of my wonderful memories.

Remembering you today Grandpa as always. I wish you were here to meet my children. You would be so proud of them. Keep watch over us. One day and ultimately it won't be that long, we will see each other again. I love you.
