Notice Condolences


79, of Radnor, Pennsylvania, died of cancer May 25, 2018. He was surrounded by his loving family at his home in Naples, Florida. He was the son of Stanley and Dorothy Kiesling Anderson of Malverne, New York. He is survived by his devoted wife of fifty-seven years, Judith Wiseman Anderson. He is also survived by his three sons, David (Deanna), Brian (Lezlie) and Steven (Chelsea), and his eight grandchildren, Tucker, Alex, Tory, Tyler, Darby, Wyly, Blake and Teddy, as well as his brother, Richard (Joann), of St. Louis, Missouri.
Mr. Anderson was born in Brooklyn, NY and attended Valley Stream Central High School. He graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a degree in Industrial Engineering, which led to a 37-year career at the General Electric Company. He graduated from GE's Manufacturing and Financial Training Programs, and earned an MBA at night while working in Memphis, Tennessee. Mr. Anderson's career with GE saw him in a variety of different businesses and in different cities, but he enjoyed the last twenty years of his career in management at the Power Delivery Division in Philadelphia. Mr. Anderson also served in the Army after graduating from college and retired as a captain in the Army Reserve. He was a member of Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church and Aronimink Golf Club. Mr. Anderson was passionate about investing, playing tennis, spending time with family, and seeing his beloved Philadelphia Eagles finally win a Super Bowl. He viewed his recent bout of cancer, after seventeen years of remission, as a challenge to overcome and a reminder for having persevered for so long. His courage and determination were an inspiration to all who knew him. But it was his kind nature and positive outlook on life for which he will be most remembered by family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, June 23 at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church at 11:00, with family visitation from 10:00 to 11:00. Memorial contributions may be made to Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, 625 Montgomery Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
