OBITUARY

Harold Lee Anderson

June 19, 1929November 3, 2019

On November 3, 2019, Harold L Anderson, a resident of Perry Park for 46 years (the place that he never wanted to leave), left us for a better place. He leaves behind a legacy and reputation for being someone whom you felt fortunate to have crossed paths with. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and very proudly a great grandfather to five girls. Harold leaves behind a family that grew up with the respect and care that he had for his wife and children that truly influenced their lives. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Dru Anderson, and their children: Carrie Mikelson (deceased), married to Randy Mikelson and their children Sara and Riley, and his wife Bree and their children Lilly, Macy, and Emery; Amy Tenn, married to Steven Tenn, and their children Nicole, Ashlee, and Calvin Nelson, and his wife Ashley Nelson and their children Isabelle and Lilah; and Hal Anderson, married to Christy Anderson and their children Rachel and Ryan. Harold was a proprietor of HLA Royalties LLC, operating as an independent Lease Broker in the Oil & Gas industry for over 60 years in Colorado. He was inducted into the Denver Association of Petroleum Landmen Hall of Fame: https://dapldenver.org/ . It is an exceptional honor to receive that level of recognition. Harold was a trusted business man whose reputation and integrity preceded him. Everybody Harold came into contact with will remember him because of his willingness to listen, to help people, and for his generosity. Harold will be missed and remembered by so many, and we love him deeply. The family will be having a private gathering to celebrate Harold's life. If you would like to participate in the celebration, we would invite you to leave a comment below for Harold's family and friends to enjoy. Contributions in memory of Harold Anderson would be appreciated to the Douglas Land Conservancy.

Unfortunately I only met Harold one time, but it was a beautiful day and relaxing visit when Mike Webb and I came down to the house to see Hal, back for a brief visit to CO in September last year, after moving to Seattle. Hal, I could see a lot of your dad (and mom) in you and instantly trace from where so many of your admirable qualities come. Thanks for welcoming us to the home of your youth and sharing your family with us. I’m glad I happened to have this picture of your dad to help remember him and that pleasant day. You are blessed that he is your dad.

Harold and Dru were dear friends with my parents Ro and Doug Woolston . When my father died that friendship continued. His kind helpfulness was always appreciated by my mother and his steady presence was invaluable when he stepped in to help her with a troubled family member.
Harold was a dear and kind man through and through and is a true example of a life well lived.

Harold was my dad's best friend. My dad nicknamed him Hype (short for hyper) because he was always so energetic and the first one to help with many projects that were always too complex for my father. Over almost 50 years since meeting at The Echo Hills Club, the were golfing buddies, gin rummy buddies, and occasional cocktail buddies. But as years have crept upon us, Harold showed his great friendship and compassion by continuing to visit with my parents every Saturday morning for coffee. Even after my dad was moved to a memory care facility, Harold would still visit my mother and check up on her regularly. His true caring friendship with my parents will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dru and the entire Anderson family.

There is nothing I can say that can top, or rival, what has already been said about Harold. One of the kindest and gentlest men I've had the pleasure to know, through my parents, Lee and Denny Dinwiddie. It was always such a joy to be with my parents and be surprised by a visit from Dru and Harold. Laughter and love all around, a continuous smile on my face. That's how I will always choose to remember Harold - with love and a continuos smile.

Harold, Hal and I put the sprinkler system in at Hal and Christy's new house some years ago. It was a tough job. We hand dug trenches and laid pipe and replaced sod. I remember both Hal and I ready to collapses and Harold just kept going. I couldn't believe his strength and endurance and he was 30 years my senior. Harold was a wonderful man. He will be missed. He lives on through his beautiful family. I am blessed to have known him.

I already shared this with Hal, but it is by far my favorite memory of Harold! I won’t share too many details, I will
Just say that Amy Tenn knows the details when Harold held a “court and judge” meeting at his house one time for some of the neighborhood kids!! He was kind and only trying to help, give advice and teach everyone a valuable lesson. Those were the days!!
Harold and Drew’s house was always open to all! Such a kind and loving home to be a part of!!!
Christmas at their home was always a treat as the house was decorated impeccably and the gift wrapping of Drew’s a sight to behold. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and your loving home!!!

What a wonderful man Harold was. I so much enjoyed the times I spent with him. His legacy - children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, are a testament to the impact he's had on the lives of so many. Best wishes always to a family I love.
