Bryan Anderson

Bryan Carl Anderson, 47, Minot and co-owner of Papa John’s Pizza died on Friday, August 3, 2012 in a Minot hospital after a courageous battle with cancer.

Bryan was born on July 12, 1965 in Jamestown, ND to Robert C. and Betty Lou (Sims) Anderson.  He was reared in Fargo and Minot where the family moved in 1975.  He graduated from Minot High School in 1983.  As a young adult he was employed at Domino’s Pizza in Minot.  Shortly thereafter, he transitioned into other business opportunities and purchased Domino’s Pizza franchises in the Leavenworth, Kansas area.  When the Papa John’s Pizza franchise in Minot became available he sold the stores in Kansas and became a co-owner of the franchise in Minot.

Bryan married Melissa Rambel on September 4, 2004 in St. Leo’s Catholic Church - MInot.  They made their home in Minot and were the proud parents of Annyka and Roxanne. 

Bryan was a member of St. Leo’s Catholic Church and especially enjoyed relaxing on the patio or around the camp fire with friends and family, watching Vikings football games, motocross racing and car racing.  He enjoyed photography, golf and racquetball and building  Honda Z-50’s.  Even though he was known for his work ethic, his family was his pride and joy.

Bryan’s loving family includes his wife Melissa; children Annyka Anderson of Minot and Roxanne Weigel of Wahpeton; granddaughter Jordan Weigel; sisters: Beth Anderson of Minot and Becky Nelson and her son Riley Nelson both of Minot and Bobby Anderson of Mesa AZ; sister- and brother-in-law:  Melinda Rambel Stone and Jon Stone; aunts and uncles: Randy and Karen Stiller of Hazen and Mike and Paulette Anderson of Minot; cousins: Curtis Engebretson, Carla Camp and Laurel Rohrer.

MessageUnfortunately, I didn't have the pleasure of meeting or getting to know Bryan; however, by listening to Melissa talk about him during my hair appointments, he was a great husband and father. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Take comfort in the fact that Bryan is in a wonderful place of heaven and no more pain or suffering. Of course, it will be difficult for you, Annyka and Roxanne but your faith will sustain you during this time. Wonderful memories will brighten your days.

MessageI had the honor of working for Bryan during his time at ING. He was a wonderful supervisor to work for/with in addition to being just a great gentleman in general. He had a genuine interest in all people he met and that was immediately apparent to anyone had the honor of working with him. He will be missed by many more than I am sure he would ever realize. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

MessageHi Melissa and Annyka,
My heart is aching for the loss of your husband and Annyka's dad. You are in my prayers and thoughts and pray for God to hold you in his arms to comfort you both. So many people loved and admired your husband. He was also a good father to Annyka. What a blessing his life was to us all. God bless. With Deepest Sympathy.

MessageI come to know Bryan in 2006 to the present day as a delivery driver for Papa Johns. He will be dearly missed at the store among past employees and present employees. I never met a man that cared so much about his staff. I heard lots of employees over the years say they never had a supervisor that truly respected them and took the time to get to know them. He even helped me pull my car out when it got stuck delivering in the snow. He also helped me push start my car when the starter was going out.
We both shared our love of 80's music like Def Leppard of course and the tasty bevarage of Diet Dew. He would buy some of my supply if his got low. WE both like Hondas and he always seem interested if my were in Papa Johns shape for delivering.
Bryan always made people feel important and loved. He made the pizza business fun to work in even in times of craziness. I will miss the big guy and it will be hard not seeing him around at the store anymore, but I'll know his spirit and legacy will live on among his friends and family and co-workers.
