Riggin Scott Anderson (20) born on March 19th 2000 in Broken Bow Nebraska to Kevin and Jody and older brother Kale.  He was joined in birth with twin brother Ridge.  At a very young age Riggin became extremely busy and interested in motors and anything that ran, this favorite thing then, a vacuum cleaner.  He and his brother were always doing something, no rock left unturned in this little town. Riggin’s love of motors evolved to bigger things like the diesel pick up he drove and the surf boat he, Ridge and friends loved to spend time in at Lake Maconaghy. A Huge outdoorsman he was, hunting many things throughout the year. Riggin was a very hard worker and was never one to just sit and do nothing. He had hardworking hands but a very soft heart and gave the best hugs you can ever get.  He loved the McGinn’s as though they were family.  He spent a lot of his working hours out at the Rifle Valley Ranch, he enjoyed the cattle, rolling hills and the smell of fresh cut hay.  Riggin had a smile and laugh that you can never forget. He had a very special young lady in his life, Avery, whom he adored. They shared a home and the enjoyment of their two dogs Charlie and Riley. Riggin and Avery had so many things in common it is crazy, as though they were just meant to be together. They were a joy to see grow and love life. Although his life was cut way too short, this kid made the most of it and one can say he had a “Good Run! ”


He was survived by his Parent Kevin and Jody, brothers Kale (Gretchen and niece Berkley) Ridge (special friend Logan) Girlfriend Avery Atkins, Grandparents Jerry and Dolly Grause, Grandpa Steve Anderson Uncle Corey (Tiff, Kutter and Grace) Anderson, Aunt Tiff (Kalon Jaxon and Hays) Fancher.
