Obituary

Robert O. Anderson passed peacefully on July 11, 2019 after a short stay at Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, MA. He was the husband of the late Doris (Hillebrand) Anderson.

An Eagle Scout, Robert was a WW II US Navy veteran serving as an electronics/radio technician. He graduated from Medford High School class of 1941 and Northeastern University in Boston after WW II with a degree in mechanical engineering.

He was the Water Superintendent for the Town of Belmont for 25 years, retiring from there 30 years ago. He was also a 70 year member of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, was a Past Master at both Mount Hermon Lodge in Medford and Tahattawan Lodge in Littleton and a member of the Shriners.

He lived in Medford for a few years after his marriage in 1951, then he and his wife Doris moved to Littleton in 1957 and resided there for the past 62 years. He looked forward to spending summers in Kennebunkport, Maine where he enjoyed his passion for building his summer home and sailing.
