John Frederick Anderson It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden death of John Frederick Anderson, age 77, of Saskatoon on Saturday, March 24, 2012. Jack was born near Bradwell on November 22, 1934 at the family farm and received his schooling in various locations throughout Saskatchewan. He spent 35 years working with the Federal Government in Radio Communications and his job promotions took him across Western Canada, finally ending his career as a District Manager in Victoria, B.C. He and Mary Ann returned to Saskatchewan in 1993 and enjoyed their retirement years travelling extensively. Jack was proud to be an active member of the Masonic Fraternity, Saskatoon Shrine Club, and the Royal Canadian Legion. He was a man of his word and could always be counted on. Jack was honest, caring, and gave generously of his time. He had a great sense of humor, was very practical and could fix just about anything. Jack was dearly loved by his wife of 54 years, Mary Ann; daughter, Janice (Terry); son, Rob (Lynn); and his five precious grandchildren, Adam, Drew, Todd, Lane, and Metaya. He was a devoted family man who never missed a `gathering of the clan'. He touched our lives in countless ways and his love was a gift we will cherish forever. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Shiners' Hospital for Children (1021 Saskatchewan Cres. W, Saskatoon, S7M 5J6), or the Heart and Stroke Foundation (279-3rd Ave. N, Saskatoon, S7K 2H8) would be greatly appreciated. The Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, March 29th, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home (east on 8th street, first right past Briargate Rd.) Interment will take place at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens. Family and friends may send online condolences from the website www.hillcrestmemorial.ca . Arrangements entrusted to Megan Kasper. May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
