Arthur Dehli Andersen was born in Chicago, Illinois of Norwegian parents. He had one sister. His middle name was his mother's maiden name. On July 18, 1939, he married Ruth Eggebrecht who he had met at work. Due to his patriotism, and despite his age of 42, he enlisted in the US Navy after the outbreak of World War 2 and served as an Aviation Machinist Petty Officer Second Class. After the war, he returned to a job with the Western Electric Company. In 1961, he retired as a Senior Equipment Engineer with 41 years of service.
In the family, he was known as Andy. He was very skilled at metal working, wood working, clock repair and especially photography. He had a lathe and a darkroom and provided most of the family pictures. His favorite cars were Studebakers that he kept in tip top condition. At some point, he purchased the home of his widowed mother-in-law and they all lived together throughout her lifetime. Eventually, they purchased a home on North Maple Avenue in Elmhurst. He and Ruth enjoyed scenic vacations. Although they were not blessed with children, Arthur and Ruth were beloved aunts and uncles to their many nieces and nephews. His always slim stature may have contributed to his long and healthy life.
