We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Spencer Funeral Home
Paul Gene Anderson, 75, of Marlborough, beloved husband and high school sweetheart of Bonnie (Kinghorn) Anderson, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, May 16th, with family by his side. Born Aug. 1, 1946, in Hartford, CT, he was the son of the late Eric and Marjorie (Warner) Anderson Sr.
Paul was a 1964 graduate of RHAM, where he excelled in art and won many school and state awards. Paul was retired from Pratt & Whitney, where he had worked for over 40 years. Paul was a resident of Marlborough for over 55 years, where he raised a family and enjoyed traveling, camping, gardening, fishing, motorcycling, and automotive restoration. Paul was a member of the Salmon River Country Riders NETRA Motorcycle Club in his younger years and loved cycling of all forms. Paul's passion for old cars brought him annually for many years to the Carlisle, PA, automotive flea market, where he would buy and sell old car and truck parts. Paul and Bonnie would often take rides in Miss Molly to find out just where does that road go?
Paul was a member of the Marlborough Congregational Church for 55 years. As a member of the Marlborough Volunteer fire department, he served on the Roy B. Pettengill Ambulance Assoc. as an EMT. When the fire department formed the fife and drum corp, Paul lettered the bass drums in Old English lettering. He was a former Cub Master with Pack 39 and assisted with Boy Scout Troop 39. Paul was never afraid to take on any project and would always be there to help family and friends at a moment's notice.
Besides his wife Bonnie, he is survived by his two sons Kenneth (Robin) Anderson of Marlborough, Brian (Jennifer) Anderson of Bethlehem, CT, a brother Eric (Lucille) Anderson Jr. of Andover, six grandchildren, Tyler Anderson, Katelynn (Josh) Vesser, Leann, Lindsey, Hunter, and Courtney Anderson, several nieces nephews, and great-nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother James Anderson, his sister Christine Miller, and loving in-laws Harry, Mabel, Glenn (Nancy), and Bruce Kinghorn.
A Memorial service will be held Saturday, June 11th , 11am, at the Marlborough Congregational Church. The family would like to thank the Middlesex Hospice team for their kindness in caring for Paul, especially nurse Kelly and social worker Jan. They'd also like to thank caregivers Paul and Michael, who had such devotion and compassion for our loved one. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Roy B.
