In loving memory of

Nolan Charles Anderson
October 24, 2003 - June 15, 2022

Nolan Charles Anderson passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 15th, surrounded by his family.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 23rd, from 3-6 p.m. at the Evangelical Free Church in Madrid, IA, with services on Friday, June 24th, at 11 a.m. A private burial will take place at a later date. There will also be a celebration of life at Sacred Heart School in Maquoketa, IA, on June 25th.

Nolan was born on October 24, 2003 in Des Moines, IA, to Jerod Anderson (Jackie) and Nicole Meek (Kelly).

Nolan was a recent graduate of Madrid High School where he was active in football, basketball, track, and baseball. He enjoyed playing online video games with his friends, spending time with his girlfriend, and going to B Dubs. Nolan was active in Boy Scouts for 8 years where he attained the rank of Life Scout. One of Nolan's most fun moments came this year when he fouled out of a basketball game in around 5 minutes. The student section was chanting his name, and he just had a big grin on his face. The coach may not have been quite as amused!

Nolan is survived by his parents; his brothers, Quentin and Mason Anderson, and Isaac Soumas; his sister, Athena Soumas; his grandparents, Kenny and LuAnn Wagner and Jean Anderson of Maquoketa, Mike and Cheryl Stubbers of Deltona, FL; his aunts and uncles, Michelle (Josh), Austin, Anna (Michael), Jennifer (Mike), Dale (Melissa), Alex (Mallory), Sarah (Kurt); his niece Freya; and his cousins, Tyler, Nolan, Trent, Grace, TJ, Lydia, Hannah, and Ethan. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, LeRoy Anderson, his grandmother, Darlene Meek, his uncle, Marshall Dunne, and his aunt, Ann Schulte.

Memorial donations will be used to establish a scholarship in Nolan's name to be given to a Madrid High School student.

The family invites you to join them at Sacred Heart School on Saturday, June 25th, from 11:00-2:00 to participate in two of Nolan's favorite pastimes - socializing and eating! Please come in Hawkeye gear (another of Nolan's favorites) or casual attire.
