OTTUMWA — Seth Cotter Anderson, 22, of 2644 N. Court Rd., died March 5, 2006, as a result of a house fire at 11612 140th St., Ottumwa.

He was born November 21, 1983 in Ottumwa to Dennis and Marty Harter Anderson, actually two years to the date from his sister, Keitha. They shared birth dates. Kallie also has a November birth date.

A graduate of Ottumwa High School, he was attending Indian Hills Community College. He was on the honor roll and was a member of the Ottumwa High School Golf team. He won the City Junior Golf Championship as a senior. Seth, “Ping”, to his many friends, had a big heart. He loved playing golf, mushroom hunting in those secret locations on Whiskey Ridge and fishing in that new boat. His other past-time was trying to defend himself from his two sisters, who surrounded him in age. He had worked at HyVee, Carroll Lumber, and was presently employed at Winger Mechanical.

Surviving are his parents, Dennis and Marty Anderson of Ottumwa; two sisters, Keitha and Kallie Jo, both of Ottumwa, and special friends and neighbors, Lloyd D. “Bud” and Cathy Leedom.

He was preceded in death by grandparents, Paul and Bettimae Anderson, Lynn and Ruby Harter.

Mass of Christian Burial will be 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Patrick Catholic Church with Rev. John Spiegel officiating. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery.

Visitation will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Reece Funeral Home with the family present from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Pallbearers will be Ted Canny, Shamus Brown, Dustin Ware, Colby Hayes, Bobby Moss, Phil Baum, Fletcher Person and Kenny Keith.

In lieu of flowers, memorials have been established to Cedar Creek Golf Course for a tribute or memorial to Seth; the Gordon Woofley Trust administered through the Elks, or to the Heartland Humane Society.
