NORTH ANDOVER - Joseph G. Anderson of North Andover, passed away on Sunday, December 24th at the age of 66. Born in Boston to the late Gustaf and Emily (Dockerty) Anderson, Joe was a lifelong resident of Massachusetts. Graduate of Don Bosco High School in Boston, and of Merrimack College in North Andover, Joe spent the early part of his career with Verizon (fmr. NE Telephone, NYNEX, Bell Atlantic), and the latter years with Fidelity.
Joe will be remembered for his sense of humor and ability to put people at ease. He loved spending time in Vermont with family and friends, and enjoyed nothing more than sitting outside on a sunny day with a cup of coffee, a cigar, a book, and the Red Sox on the radio.
Joe is survived by his wife of 42 years, Ellen; daughters, Michelle and Emily (husband, Michael); and sister, Mary.
In lieu of flowers, gifts in Joe's honor can be made to the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center at https://giving.massgeneral.org/cancer/donate or mailed to Massachusetts General Hospital, Development Office, 125 Nashua Street, Suite 540, Boston, MA 02114.
