Obituary for C.D. "Andy" Andreasen

C. D. “Andy” Andreasen 88 of Lowell passed away May 6, 2020 in Rogers. He was born February 6, 1932 in Joliet, Illinois, the son of the late Cedius M. and Mary T. (Major) Andreasen. Andy was a Sargent in the United States Army and a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.
He was a former President of White Pines Association in Bensenville, IL, and former President of the Lowell, AR Chamber of Commerce. Andy was a well-respected businessman who in 1959 established and operated Century TV in downtown Bensenville. He relocated his family to Arkansas in 1974, where he then acquired Norwood-Lowell Electronics and continued to run this business until retirement.
Survived by his wife Kathleen of the home, they would have been married 65 years on May 7th, the date they had made their vows to each other in 1955 at St. Edwards Catholic Church in Chicago, IL; children Donald C. Andreasen, Susan E. Steven, Ronald J. Andreasen, Kenneth J. Andreasen (wife Pamela), and Daniel M. Andreasen (wife Carmen); and his devoted, loving grandchildren Matthew Steven, Meagan Andreasen, John Andreasen, and Sarah Andreasen. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother George Andreasen, and son-in-law Ritchie Steven.
Sargent C. D. Andreasen was a first generation American of Danish and Hungarian heritage. He served in the US Army during the Korean War. After the armistice had been signed, he was talking to his close army friend when the soldier was suddenly fallen by a sniper. In memory of his friend, Andy lived his life to the fullest. He met the love of his life, Kathleen, at a dance shortly after returning from war. They married a year later and continued to dance nearly every weekend into their 80s. Andy enjoyed music and played the tuba, accordion, and organ. During his high school years he played several sports including football and baseball. Later, he coached his boys in basketball. He shared his joy of boating with his first mate, Kathy, and their 5 children, navigating the Great Lakes and Canadian waters on their yacht named Kathan. Boating remained one of his great joys throughout life. After 15 years of running his electronics business in Illinois, he sold it and moved his family to Lowell, Arkansas near Beaver Lake onto a 40 acre ranch. Here he built the family home, raised cattle, and became owner and operator of an electronics and satellite business. At retirement, he restored an RV bus and enjoyed traveling around the states with wife, Kathleen. Andy served actively in the community and was a highly regarded businessman as well as an endeared friend to many. He was a father who inspired his children throughout their lives with the generosity of his time and constancy of his love. He was dearly loved by all who were fortunate to have known this special man and he will be very deeply missed.
Private family mass 10:00 a.m. Friday, May 8, 2020 at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. Friends may attend the interment in the St. Vincent Cemetery.
Memorials may be made in Andy’s memory to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 1416 W. Poplar St., Rogers, Arkansas 72758.
Arrangements by Benton County Funeral Home, 306 N. 4th St., Rogers.
