Scott Rodney Anderson, age 64 of rural Arlington passed away on Sunday July 9th, 2023 at University of Minnesota Fairview, Minneapolis.

Scott was born on February 19th, 1959 at the Arlington Municipal Hospital to Rodney and Lorraine (Neubarth) Anderson.  Scott was baptized on March 20th, 1959 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Arlington.  Scott later confirmed his faith through Confirmation at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Arlington.  Scott attended and graduated from Arlington-Green Isle High School.  After graduation he worked along side his parents on the family dairy farm which he later continued with his own family.

In 1988 he met Barb.  They later married on July 22nd, 1989 at Peace Lutheran Church in Arlington.  Together they raised four children.  One of his favorite summer activities was seeing his kids show cattle at the County and State Fairs.  He was also the proud recipient of the County DHIA dairy production award.  Farming and cows were his passion second only to his family.  He was referred to as Dr. Dolittle as no matter what the animal was, they always took to him.  He was a board member of the Sibley County DHIA.  He was a member of Peace Lutheran Church and served on the education board.  Over the years Scott found out that he enjoyed traveling, which took him to places such as Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Aruba, Haiti, Columbia, Panama, Curacao, the Bahamas, Alaska, Las Vegas and numerous other states.  Sometimes he was joined on these adventures by friends, or his kids and his grandkids which brought him great joy.
