In memory of
Robert S. Anderson
Robert S. “Bob” Anderson, 51, passed away unexpectedly Sunday Oct. 16, 2016. Robert was born in Manchester, CT, the youngest child of Barbara (Erickson) Anderson of East Longmeadow, and the late George Anderson. He grew up in Longmeadow, and graduated from Longmeadow High School and Holyoke Community College. Robert was employed by Mass Mutual Life Insurance as a Business Consultant for the past 30 years. He was also a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in East Longmeadow. He was a lifelong fan of all Boston sports teams and listened to almost any kind of music - especially the Beatles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Keith Urban, just to name a few. Most of all his loving, funny, kind and generous nature was embraced by his family and friends. A perfect day would be one surrounded by family and friends, playing a card game while cheering for the Patriots. Along with his loving mother, he leaves his devoted wife of 28 years, Carolyn “Carrie” (Cousineau) Anderson; two beloved sons, Matthew and James Anderson; brother, William Anderson and his wife Kathy of Monroe, NC; three sisters, Laura Hebert and her husband Thomas of Enfield, CT, Lynn Gibby and her husband Burton, of Longmeadow, Carol Lenski and her husband Michael, of East Hartland, CT; brother in law, Thomas Cousineau of Warwick, RI; sister in law, Dianne Falconer and her husband Eric, of Kennebunk, ME; and many nieces, nephews, extended family members, and lifelong friends. Calling hours will be held from 1:00pm-3:00pm on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at the Forastiere Smith Family Funeral & Cremation, located at 220 North Main Street, East Longmeadow, MA, with a ceremony to celebrate his life immediately following.
