Henry "Hank" Anderson, 80, a resident of Newport, New Hampshire, passed away peacefully in the comfort of his daughter's home with family at his side, on Thursday, June 6, 2013, following a long illness.
He was born June 16, 1932, in Brockton, Massachusetts the son of Henry and Edythe (Nye) Anderson. Hank proudly served our Nation as a member of the United States Army during the Korean War. He worked many years as a Superintendent of Construction for a large local cooperation prior to his retirement.
Hank was a man strong in will and pride, he was a firm believer in an honest days work for an honest days pay( and you had better believe it too if you wished to keep your job )
His main interests included riding his motorcycle, his horses, fishing, hunting, building or repairing almost anything and his dog "Honey Girl".
Although generally not a man to openly show much affection, his quiet unassuming compassion was clearly demonstrated in the daily care which he showed to his wife: Ann Crossman, who battled many years with Alzheimer's before her passing in 2011.
