John W. Anderson,Sr., age 53,died on November 12 with his family by his side at his home in Deptford, passed gently from this life to the next after a 28 year battle with M.S.
Formerly of Fairview, a graduate of St. Joseph's High School class of 1974, John, in his youth, loved cars, baseball, and fishing. He was a favorite waiter to patrons who dined at Chubby's or the Philadelphia Club. He was a devout fan of the WWE, as well as classic TV shows.
Beloved father to John Jr. and Nicole, son of John H. and the late Norma H., brother to Norma, Kathleen, Gregory and Zachary, brother-in-law to Donna, uncle to Zachary II and Alyssa, and Pop-Pop John to Nicholas.
John's illness never changed his great sense of humor or his quick witted mind. He was a confident, strong-willed man with a never give up attitude. A warrior with a sensitive side who's unmistakable smile and laugh will always be in our hearts.
