Duane Earl Anderson was born on March 20, 1935, in Big Lake, Minnesota, the son of Walter and Laura (Myers) Anderson.

In 1966, with a little encouragement from his sister, Phyllis he moved to Atlantic and began working for Walnut Grove. He continued working there until his retirement in 1996. On April 7, 1973, he was united in marriage to Dora Dominguez in Kansas City, Missouri. They were a couple of faith, serving their Lord. Duane and Dora looked forward to trips to Branson where they took in a lot of country music, which they both loved.
Duane was an active member of Church of God of Prophecy/New Life Church and volunteered countless hours. He was a talented banjo player and when he was younger played with family and friends at a variety of events. Duane looked forward to spring when he could plant flowers and work in his garden that was his pride and joy. He was handy in carpentry and was always willing to help others with remodeling projects.
