Dale Allen Anderson of Cambridge, died at home on the farm on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at the age of 74. He was born on November 9, 1946 to Delmar and Hattie Anderson at the Rush City hospital. He grew up with five siblings of which he was the oldest; he attended Pine Brook country school, Cambridge Junior High School, then Cambridge Senior High School from which he graduated in 1964. Just after graduation, Dale began full-time employment at RAO Manufacturing (metalwork shop) in Fridley, MN. Shortly after high school, Dale married Darlene Peterson from Isanti, MN. From this union he had three children. His time was spent working at RAO Manufacturing and continuing his passion for farming plus raising his family. In 1993, Dale married Ann E. Steussy Shaw from Fergus Falls, MN which added two stepsons to his family. He and his wife farmed together on their land between Princeton and Cambridge, MN while continuing his employment at RAO Manufacturing. At 62, Dale was forced to retire from RAO for health reasons after 39 years of employment. He had to stop working the farm when he was 70 because of additional health issues. In his “spare” time, he enjoyed his love of cats, dancing to old-time music, going out for supper, and making road trips to other states to enjoy the scenery. He was preceded in death by his father Delmar Anderson. Dale is survived by his wife, Ann; his mother, Hattie Anderson of Cambridge; brothers, Wayne Anderson, Steven (Donna) Anderson; sisters, Sandra (Jack) Holland, Carol (Merlin) Holland, Sue Anderson, all of Cambridge; children Robin (Doug) Lanz of Stanchfield, Jeff (Julie) Anderson of Dalbo, JulieAnn (Jesse) Rouse of Cambridge; stepsons Howard Shaw of Cambridge, Gary (Tammy) Shaw of Princeton; grandchildren, Cody Lanz, Jenna, Caleb and Leah Anderson, Megan and Colin Rouse.
