Albert was born on June 23, 1936 to Beltram and Hulda (Mindt) Aanderud. He was raised and educated in Beulah. He married Adeline (Rahn) on April 10, 1959, and they were blessed with two sons, Wade and Mark.
Albert worked at the Knife River Coal Mine for 39 years, retiring in 1998. He enjoyed working there with his co-workers, and eventually became a dragline operator. He was also a representative of the Genie-Watt Credit Union for 21 years. He also served 24 years on Beulah’s City Council. He was most proud of his part in rebuilding the water treatment plant and Beulah’s beautification projects.
Among his fondest memories were those spent with his wife at their lake cabin at Beulah Bay with family and friends. He loved fishing, playing cards, and telling stories around late night campfires. Albert had a great sense of humor, and will be dearly missed by those who loved him.
