Obituary: Lee James Anderson


June 30, 2023

Lee James Anderson, 36, of Cloquet passed into his Father's arms on May 29, 2023. God sent this "special needs" child into this world to spread joy, laughter and sunshine to all who knew him.

Lee attended Winterquist Elementary, where his classmates accepted him unconditionally, showing him compassion, understanding and friendship. Lee graduated from Esko High School in 2007.

Lee was preceded in death by his mother, Joanne; grandparents, Bruce and Lois

Anderson and Lloyd and Joyce Sletten; and his uncle Lee.

Lee is survived by his father, Stephen Anderson (Susan Christenson); brother, Stephen

(Krystal Lalonde); uncle Tim (Laura) Anderson; aunts, Debby (Tim) Price, Gail Bennett,

Susan Sletten and Sandra Jones; and cousins, Abraham, Nathanial, Rebecca, Michael, Matthew, Lucas, Alissa, Kimberly, Karly, Dustin and Aric.

Our family extends a special thank-you to the loving, caring staff of Pine Ridge Homes' Cedar Home, where Lee resided for the past 23 years. Your outstanding care enriched Lee's life immensely and we are forever grateful.

Thank you to the Solvay Hospice staff for the comfort care provided to Lee.
