Lynn A. Anderson, of rural Hayti, SD, passed away on Friday, November 15, 2019 at the age of 47.

Visitation will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at the New Hope Lutheran Church, rural Hayti. A Celebration of Lynn's life and time of sharing will be held at 7 p.m. with Rev. Randy Eisenbeisz officiating. Burial will be at a later date.

Honorary Urn bearers are his close friends, Ron Holiday, Scott Schaefer and Ben Stormo; Nephews, Jason Anderson, Austin Anderson, Michael Anderson, Wesley Johnson, Jeremiah Peckenpaugh, Tanner Moss, Riley Buck and Brady Buck.

Lynn Allen Anderson was born July 23, 1972 to Arnold and Donna (Namken) Anderson. He was the youngest of 7 children. He grew up on the family farm near Hayti and called it home till his passing day. Lynn graduated from Hamlin High School in 1990 and continued his education at Lake Area Technical Institute in the area of Ag. He continued to work in the Ag industry including Hayti Farmers Elevator, Westcon in Milbank, Scotts Air Ag, Lake Mary Elevator Construction, for his friend Ron Holiday and most recently P3 Electric.

Lynn loved to fish and do his “chores” of feeding his squirrels at his favorite place, the farm. He enjoyed attending auctions and finding antiques, playing cards and providing many laughs for those around him. Lynn was a true people person and could talk the ear off of anyone. Family and friends were his world, especially his daughter Justine.

Lynn is survived by his daughter, Justine Anderson of Brookings; his mother, Donna Anderson of Watertown; his siblings, Arline (Leon) Johnson of Bryant, Gary (Serena) Anderson of Beresford, James (Diane) Anderson of Hayti, Mary Ellen Johnson (Bob Sour) of Hazel, Kimberly (Curtis) Hlavacek of Watertown, and MarJoan (Bret) Buck of Bryant; special friend Christy Anderson of Sioux Falls and step-children Amanda (Ricky) Raml and Elora LaBarr; 16 nieces and nephews and 26 great nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his father, Arnold Anderson, beloved friend Chuck Kasten and infant niece Teresa Anderson.

Lynn’s last wishes were to have his friends and family celebrate his life after his passing and to “have one for him." He will be greatly missed by all that crossed his path.

I cannot wrap my head around the fact that Chuck n Lynn are gone. I grew up with both of them. Their names were like One Word. Throughout our K-12 years I hardly remember saying their names separately because they were so inseparable. I knew Lynn since I began kindergarten and we rode the bus together. His nickname was “Smiley” because he was always smiling. I loved to laugh and he was great at bringing laughter to my life when we hung out through our early twenties. I always remember when i would leave his house or take off for home after hanging out he would always say “Great to see you, Be Good” Obviously Lynn had personal struggles in his adulthood but of all the people I’ve met throughout my life, Lynn is one I will never forget and whenever I think of him a Smile comes to my face. I feel so blessed to have been able to get a big hug and smile from Lynn at Arnold’s funeral. RIP Smiley🙏😢. Your Friend, Chad Thue
