He was born in Bothwell, Utah on May 8, 1914, to the strong pioneer stock of Rasmus (Daddy) and Mary Elvina Anderson. He was the thirteenth of sixteen siblings who all preceded him in death. He loved them dearly and diligently cared for each of them through the years.

They lived in Corinne, Utah, Bonners Ferry, Idaho before settling in his beautiful Bothwell. His love of the land there kept him farming well into his seventies.
Cleon was a lifelong member of the LDS Church and held the office of High Priest in the Bothwell Ward. He served as President of the Young Men, secretary of the elders quorum. He was a faithful home teacher for many years and was always willing to serve others.
