Obituary Condolences

ANDERSON, James Thomas James Thomas Anderson, of Farmington, husband of the late Elizabeth B. Anderson, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday (November 19, 2008). Born in Boston, MA on October 23, 1936, he was the third son of the late Dr. and Mrs. Edward N. Anderson. Mr. Anderson spent many of his formative years living in Iowa City, IA and after graduating from high school, he spent a year at the University of Iowa before enlisting in the Army. Upon completion of his enlistment, he was honorably discharged and enrolled at the College of the Holy Cross, graduating in 1962 with a degree in Accounting. While living in New York and working for Touche, Ross and Company, he met and married his wife. After moving to Farmington to work for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, he and his wife began their family, eventually having three sons. In the early 1970's, Mr. Anderson left Pratt and Whitney to start his own company, a landscaping concern servicing the Greater Hartford area, growing the company until he sold it and began his retirement in 1992. A life-long sports enthusiast, he was an outdoor sportsman, an avid upland bird hunter and he and his wife travelled extensively to follow their sons' soccer pursuits. In addition to following the Red Sox, Patriots and Uconn Sports, many will remember him for his dogs of which he was very proud. He is survived by his three sons: Mark E.
