Robert Anderson Obituary

Robert E. “Andy” Anderson, 85, of New London died Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at University Hospital, Cleveland.  He was born December 7, 1937, in Wellington to the late Pauline (Kolbe) and Earl Anderson.  Robert was a 1958 graduate of Wellington High School and served in the US Army.  He worked at Forest City Technologies for over 30 years.  He was a member of the Wellington Eagles and American Legion.  Although Robert did not play baseball, he was a true baseball enthusiast.  He coached, umpired and watched baseball on TV; he loved tracking the stats of each game.  Robert loved bowling and was on a bowling league for over 30 years.  He enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and would much rather have sweets than a meal.  Robert was a quiet and private man who was dearly loved by his family and friends.     

Robert is survived by his sister, Carol Anderson of Wellington; niece, Kristine (Tony) Primm of Myerstown, PA; nephew, William (Pam) Shank of Woodstock, GA; great nieces, Heather (Brian) Sekely and Meghan (Brian) Milici, Emily (Eric) Anderson and Eliza Shank; close friend and care giver, Michelle (Randy) Parr of New London.  He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Nancy Anderson and brother, William Anderson.
