Carl William Anderson, age 79, died after a brief illness, Tuesday, September 20th, in Beverly, Massachusetts. He was born November 19, 1942, in Chelsea, Massachusetts to Bert and Rita Anderson. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Jeanne (Bonica) Anderson.
In 1970 Carl and Jeanne moved to Middleton, Mass., where they laid their forever roots. Carl was a salesman for Nibco, Walden Industrial and Ferguson for over 40 years. At the age of 65, Carl began working for Northeast Arc, driving for the disabled. When he finally retired at the age of 75, he could be found camping in New Hampshire with his wife, tending to his garden, or tackling any repairs needed around the home.
Carl is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his children Leigh-Andrea (Rick) Zwicker, Troy (Kris) Anderson; Adria (Chris) Burke, Crystal and Brett Anderson; his three grandchildren: Taylor and Parker Anderson, Willow Burke; and his brother, Barry Anderson.
Carl was an exceptional father and husband who always put his family first. His soft demeanor, big heart and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew him.
