Ron Anderson was a quiet, humble man who enjoyed the simple pleasures in life like his ‘65 Ford Mustang, the occasional trip to Deadwood to fill up on crab legs (and maybe fill his pockets, too), and a warm day on a quiet pond in the hills watching the bobber on his fishing rod do a little dance. He was a firm believer in always doing the right thing and understood that in order to get what you wanted, you worked your tail off for it. He was old school - and he wasn’t scared to admit it. He loved giving people a hard time, hated technology, and could have cared less about what people thought (those who remember his red Ford Explorer understand completely). Even after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, he insisted on showing up and refused to let the world see anything other than the same old Ron.
If he didn’t spend his evenings sorting through stacks of paperwork and bookkeeping for Foothills, he could be found with his feet up watching TV - flipping between Pawn Stars, Storage Wars (or some other A&E/History Channel reality show), or an old western movie. He loved dogs, spending some of his earlier adult years breeding Alaskan Malamutes, found peace in Spring and Summer gardening, and had a long history practicing and instructing others in the art of Tae Kwon Do (advancing up to a 4th degree black belt in his own discipline).
Ron had a deep love for coaching kids. After a few years of coaching his daughter’s basketball/softball teams, he decided the basketball court suited him best and gave his efforts to the Piedmont Stallions/Junior Scoopers basketball leagues for many seasons. When he wasn’t able to commit the necessary time to coaching teams full-on, he always agreed to help referee weekend games and tournaments. He’s still known and remembered by kids and adults alike as “Coach Ron.”
Both on and off the court, Ron found moments to “coach” others. His voice of reason and calm, patient demeanor, along with extensive life experience made it hard to argue with him - even though we still tried once in a while.
Ron adored his wife of 35 years, loved his 3 amazing kids, and found his purpose when he began caring for residents 30 years ago. Since then, he has touched an infinite number of lives through hundreds of avenues and across many miles, leaving some sort of quintessential “Ron-ism” memory in his wake.
He will be dearly missed and the impression he leaves behind will be felt for years to come.
Ronald “Ron” George Anderson, 69, died Friday, December 20, 2019, at his home in Piedmont.
He is survived by his wife, Kyeok; his children, Mike, Chris, and Tanya; and his brother, Tom.
He is preceded in death by his father and mother, Donald and Anna; his sister, Marge Brunmaier; and nephew, Casey.
Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 7, at Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis.
Memorial services will be at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 8, 2020, at Divine Shepherd Lutheran Church in Black Hawk with Pastor Randy Sturzenbecker officiating. Committal services will follow at 2:30 p.m. at Black Hills National Cemetery near Sturgis.
A memorial has been established.

I was saddened to hear of Ron's passing. I remember fondly the years he encouraged both of our children on and off the BB court. He had a way of making kids feel appreciated and loved by remembering them far past their court years.
He was a coach in many ways ~
I will continue to pray for your family, and to my sweet friend; Cathy, I am deeply sorry for yet another loss in your life. The Lord is gracious and kind; even in and possibly especially during our darkest hours ~

My deepest sympathies to Ron's family. I knew him for many years when I worked at first Pamida Pharmacy and then Shopko pharmacy. He always called me "Red", he was the ONLY one who ever got away with that! haha! I have many fond memories of him. He was a great guy and will be dearly missed by all who had a chance to know him.
