Steen Konrad Anderson was born to Fern Elizabeth (Harris) and Morris Anderson on Sept. 4, 1957 in Wurzburg, Germany. He graduated from Wayne High School in 1975 and farmed and transported livestock and grain following his graduation. He moved to Franklin, Neb. and continued to do trucking for about nine years before moving to St. John, Kan. In 1995 he and a friend formed a business that owned and managed heavy equipment for construction companies. He sold this business in 2009 due to severe health reasons. Steen was an optimistic, kindhearted gentleman who loved the simple lifestyle of the Midwest. He was strong and determined and would help anyone in need. He had a tremendous sense of humor and could have everyone laughing within minutes of meeting him.
