Owen was born on June 11, 1994 in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, the son of Jonathan and Cathy Anderson. He graduated from Elk Rapids High School in 2012 and attended Ferris State University and Northern Michigan College, working on his degree in Construction Management.

He loved to play video games with his friends, go off-roading, and spending time with his cousins and friends, often entertaining listeners with his long, detailed, funny stories. Owen was a thoughtful and kindhearted man. He spent time snowboarding with his sister, Alaura, and sitting by the campfire. He could often be found tinkering with his car and sharing his joy of loud music while driving down the road. Owen was a great son, always had a smile on his face, and was a joy to be around.
Owen is survived by his parents, Jonathan Anderson and Cathy (fiancé Ron Moretto) Anderson; sister, Alaura Anderson; grandmothers, Alvina Marshall and Lorraine Gustafson; step-grandmother, Carol Gustafson; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
