In care of the family for future designation

Christian Travis Anderson, known as “AC” to some, passed away on July 21, 2022, at the age of 46, in his childhood home, surrounded by the people who loved him the most.  Christian fought a brave battle with liver failure.

On January 29, 1976, the most beautiful brown skinned, brown eyed baby boy was born to Gaylord and Deyo (Callan) Anderson of Wahoo.  His parents and big sister Heather were ecstatic to bring him home on his mother’s birthday, February 3, 1976. Later, the family welcomed Joshua and Amanda all through adoption. Christian graduated from Wahoo High School in 1994 where he excelled in football, basketball and track.  Christian was voted “Best Dressed” by his high school classmates and boy did they hit the nail on the head.  Christian worked as the general manager of the Men’s Wearhouse for 18+ years, where he was in his element.  He took pride in making himself and his clients look spectacular.  Christian was a true gentleman and won the heart of Carissa (Haselhorst) Anderson in 2002.  Though he fell in love with Carissa, his true love was baby Skylar Rose.  Carissa and Christian were married May 2006 and went on to welcome Christian’s second and third loves, Scarlett Rose and Sunday Rose in 2007 and 2010.  Christian loved his family fiercely, but sadly, Alcoholism, came between him and Carissa.  He tried hard to maintain his sobriety, for his family.

Christian will be missed fiercely by his love Carissa Anderson, daughters Skylar Rose and son-in-law Jaden Jilg Brown, Scarlett Rose and Sunday Rose.  His loving parents Gaylord and Deyo Anderson, sister Heather and husband Chuck Elliott, brother Joshua and wife Kristy Anderson and sister Amanda and husband Tyler Amheiser.  Family was the most important thing to Christian and he adored his nieces Isabel, Abigail, Ellie, Olivia, and Hazel and nephews Callan, Devin, Dominic and Theo. In life and eternity, he will be surrounded by his extended family and close friends.  He eternally joined his grandparents Garwood and Dorothy Anderson and Edward and Ruth Callan in the Kingdom of Heaven.

To celebrate Chirstian and his love of life, we would love to see everyone in colorful attire.

    It was an honor and a privilege to live next-door to the Anderson’s home for 36 years. What the Anderson household taught me was that family is everything. It was a beautiful sight to watch Heather, Christian, Josh and Amanda gather over the years at their parent’s home for every event imaginable. From Heather’s wedding, to birthdays, holidays and everything in-between. It delighted me to watch them as the years went by and their families expanded. It was an easy task to spot Christian out of the rest of the pack because he was consistently the best dressed Anderson by far. I am certain the very first time I saw an actual cowl-neck sweater in person (not on a movie star) was on Christian. I was enamored with his style and grace and was certain Deyo took him to NYC to shop. I remember commenting on his style frequently to my father, and dad would reply that Deyo was “one of the hardest working women” he’d ever seen. (I promise we weren’t weird peeping-Tom neighbors, they were just in the yard a lot:). My father must have been listening to me over the years because he made it a priority to visit Christian at Men’s Wearhouse to buy a suit. When he got home he showed me the gray and brown pin-striped suits that Christian had helped him pick out. It was an honor and a privilege, several years later, to lay my father to eternal rest, dressed in that crisp gray suit that Christian picked out especially for my dad. I remember another time commenting on a ring that Christian was wearing. I said “Christian that is such a neat ring! Where did you get it?” He replied “Oh, you really like it that much, here you can have it,” and he proceeded to remove the ring from his hand. I assured Christian I could not accept his fashion staple but I tell you that story just to show the nature and character of Christian. He was so kind and generous and always wanting to help. The very last time I saw Christian, 2 years ago, he was helping me mow my property. I can still remember him with that agreeable smile and his straw hat, riding the lawnmower. Every time I saw Christian prior to that day he was doing just the same: Lending a hand or asking OTHERS how they were doing, never in exaltation about himself, yet always concerned about others. He was a man of service and loved his family fiercely. He was so extremely proud of his family, especially his 3 daughters, and his mother, Deyo. One day, after Deyo’s dear dog passed away, Christian reached out to me to let me know so I could send condolences to his mom. He was so concerned about her and it was obvious to me that he hurt because Deyo was hurting. When his baby sister, Amanda, was pregnant with Theo, he came to me and beamed with his big beautiful cheeks, so excited to tell me how she and Tyler were expecting their first baby boy. Family was EVERYTHING to Christian. The future will not be the same without Christian physically present, but I hope you all can take some solace knowing he is with you in your heart. He touched so many individuals and we all are so blessed to have a piece of him with us forever. I certainly know I am a much better person having known Christian “AC” Anderson. Rest easy my sweet friend.
    God Bless all of you!
    Your friend, Amber (Andresen) De Boef

    Christian was such a kind, kind Soul…. Damn our human earthly battles that we all experience in different ways. Under it all he loved big and saw the best in people.
    You are missed my friend – may Christian be an Angel now to protect and watch over all of those he loved so Big!

    Gaylord, Deyo and family,. I am deeply saddened to hear of Christians passing. My mind takes me back to the early years when he and Jeremy and the other boys played after school usually at one house playing football. They all had so much fun. Christian was always very well behaved and always respectful to me and others. I have missed out on so much. The last time I saw him was at their graduation. Joanie let me know when he came home for his final days here on earth. Please know my every thoughts in my mind has been with you as you have endured this pain. I know that he is in good hands now with no pain and suffering. Be comforted he is with you everyday in spirit. I believe in the wonderful life after death that our God gives to us. In watching the funeral livestream,. This filled me with the reality of his life and how he had grown to be a beautiful young man. I am truly sorry for your loss. No parents ever want to face this day. You have many happy memories and his daughters will help ease his missing in the future. I could go on and on but I won’t. I just needed to share my thoughts of a young man I remembered as a happy young boy. My prayers are sent to the entire family of Christian ‘AC’;Anderson. May God be with you and for the many days to follow. Be happy he is with his grandparents and resting in Peace and looking forward to the day you will be reunited again.
