Neil Allen Anderson entered heaven on April 15, 2024.  He was born in Ft. Wayne, Indiana on May 24, 1935, the son of Arnold and Martha (Peting) Anderson.

Neil attended South Side High School in Ft. Wayne (1953), graduated from Indiana University, (where he was proud to have participated in one of the first “Little 500s”), and served six years in the US Army Reserves.

He started his career with New York Central Railroad, moved on to North American Van Lines, then to the Trust Department at Fort Wayne National Bank.  He retired from NBD Bank in 1998 as a Vice President of Private Banking and Investments.  After  a short retirement, he joined the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne where he served as the Director of Planned Giving until he retired in 2012.

Neil was active in the following organizations:  Ft. Wayne Kiwanis Club, Family & Children’s Services, South Side High School Foundation, Audiences Unlimited, Olin B. & Desta Schwab Foundation, Lutheran Homes, Lutheran Social Services, and Habitat for Humanity.

His great loves were his wife, Sarilda, his children, grandchildren, tennis and Siesta Key, Florida.  After moving to Fishers to be near his grandchildren, Neil found great friendships and community through his church, Christ the Savior Lutheran, and his River Glen neighbors.

Neil is survived by his son, Todd Anderson of Orlando, FL; his daughter, Ann Marie (Randy) Waren of Fishers; and two precious grandchildren, Jack and Isabelle Waren; his sister-in-law, Susie Winebrenner; niece, Sue Davis; and nephew, Jim Anderson.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Sarilda; his brother Dwight Anderson; a sister-in-law, Donna Anderson; and a half-brother, Gale Anderson.
