John R. Anderson, 71
John R. Anderson, 71, of Oakwood, passed away peacefully on Oct. 22, 2018, after a courageous 10-month battle with liver cancer. John found comfort and strength during this time being surrounded with love and support from his family and close friends.
John was born on Dec. 4, 1946, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Theresa and the late Robert Anderson. He served in the U.S. Navy, where he proudly served in the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1969 on the USS Coral Sea CVA 43 in the Gulf of Tonkin and at a NATO Base in Iceland.
Later, John worked for IBM as a field engineer in various brokerage houses and banks. Moving on to JPMorgan, where he retired in 2003, as a senior vice president and head of global contingency planning.
John enjoyed playing golf and cheering for the N.Y. Mets and Giants. But his greatest source of joy was spending cherished time with his children and grandchildren, whom he adored. He was regarded as affable, fun-loving, and larger-than-life by all who knew and loved him.
John is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Marie (nee Migliorini); his son, John S. and wife Elisa, and daughter, Jennifer Mistretta and husband Dr. Michael Mistretta. John is also survived by three grandchildren, Matthew Mistretta, Aidan and Emma Anderson; his mother, Theresa, his sister, Patricia Campbell and husband Colin, as well as many family and friends.
Visitation will be Friday, Oct. 26, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Hanley Funeral Home. A Catholic mass will be said 9:15 a.m. on Saturday at St. Charles Church.

Such a nice guy, although John was many years older than my friends and myself he was always very friendly with good advice for us younger neighbors or willing to toss a football around and tell us stories of his days in the Navy. Growing up in Oakwood was idyllic in those days and neighbors were friendly and always ready to help out each other. Such a shame to see friends dying but this is the circle of life. " Do you remember the times of your life" Condolences to his family. Rest in Peace. Semper Fidelis. Thank you for your service to our country. Go Navy!

John and I worked as a team as IBM customer engineers for many years. We worked many long hard hours together. When I first joined IBM John was a mentor to me but most of all he was my friend.
