Jacob D. Anderson

Jacob Danial “Jake” Anderson, age 28, of North Fond du Lac, WI, died unexpectedly on May 2. He is the son of Danial and Rebecca (Sovey) Anderson of Malone, WI. Jake was born in Fond du Lac, WI on September 14, 1993.  

In addition to his parents, Jake is survived by son Eli Anderson, Expected Baby, The Love of his Life Kerri Nevala, sisters, Brittany (Luke) Kohlmann, and Mykayla (Aaron Golemgeski) Anderson, nephews Forest Golemgeski, Colton Kohlmann, and godson Dalton Kohlmann. He is further survived by his grandfather Louis J Anderson Sr., and many aunts, uncles and cousins. 

Jake was preceded in death by his grandmothers, Eleanor Sovey, and Lorraine Anderson, Grandfather Earl Sovey, Uncles Louis J Anderson Jr, and Rodney Lemerand, and Cousin Sarah Gannon.

Jake was an all or nothing kind of guy. He lived life to its fullest. His goofy personality, smile, and hugs always made you feel better. He was a sports fanatic, had a rocket for an arm and could throw a football like no other. Whether it was playing every sport there was as a kid, enjoying a ball game with his girlfriend, participating in several fantasy football leagues, or cheering on Eli Tomac in super cross races. 

He was an avid hunter and fisherman both on the water and the ice. He enjoyed hikes with his dogs. He loved the thrill of riding and preforming tricks on his 4-wheeler, always a kid at heart. He enjoyed sharing his childhood toys with his nephews. He was so mechanically inclined he could work on anything with a motor. He enjoyed all kinds of music but going to Country USA or a Tool concert really made his day. 

But the part of his life he loved most was being a dad. His world revolved around Eli. He and Kerri were excited for every minute they got with him. They were looking forward to their baby boy to be. Jake was an adoring and dedicated daddy. 

In lieu of flowers any monetary contributions will be put into a savings for Jake’s sons. 

Visitation will be held from 12:30 PM -2:30 PM, Saturday, May 7, 2022, at Uecker-Witt Funeral Home. A memorial service will follow, beginning at 2:30 PM. Cremation has taken place.

Services are in the care of Uecker-Witt Funeral Home, 524 North Park Avenue, Fond du Lac, WI, 54935. Additional information and guestbook can be found at ueckerwitt.com
