Posted: September 24th, 2022


Monty Milan Anderson passed away on September 21, 2022 at the age of 78, and is having a joyful reunion in Heaven with his daughter Kari and mother Addie. He was the youngest son of Lawrence and Addie Anderson; survived by his siblings Freida, Norma, Jean, Sharon, and Richard, and predeceased by his parents and brothers Ken and Ted.

He will be dearly missed by his wife Sharon, and family: Darren (Niki), Shawn (Annie-Jo), Scott (Jodi), his 11 Grandchildren and 5 great-grandsons.

Monty was born in Cardston, Alberta, on September 1, 1944. He met the love of his life, Sharon Williams in Cardston in the summer of 1964, married her September 1, 1967, and they were sealed together with their children in the Cardston Temple in June 1978.

In 1969 he bought the Claresholm Creamery with his brother Ken and moved to Claresholm. Monty and Ken later bought the Cardston Creamery and ran both. He was known as the milkman in Claresholm.

Monty was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many positions over his lifetime and enjoyed serving in the Cardston temple with his wife.

He was active in the community and played an instrumental role in building the baseball diamonds at Claresholm Centennial Park. He volunteered countless hours as a baseball coach and umpire, including being an umpire at the Canadian Junior championship.

You could often find Monty outside working in his yard. He loved the outdoors, especially trips to Mexico and camping in Waterton with Jean and Arnie Ferguson. He loved animals and enjoyed collecting coins and hats. He was a hard worker, generous, dedicated to his family, always had a smile and a treat to share, and will be deeply missed.

In lieu of flowers, please take the time to give your loved ones a hug and kiss.

A Funeral Service will be held Wednesday, September 28 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (4924 Р3rd St.) Claresholm, AB. Friends may meet the family at 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM with the service beginning at 11:00 AM.
