Brian Anderson, 67 of Millinocket and Prospect, Connecticut, passed on to a pain free place on Sunday, March 10, 2019 after his battle with cancer. His loving family was by his side, and, just as in the rest of his life, Gerri was there by his side at all times making sure he was well cared for.
Brian was a wonderful husband, Dad, grandfather and brother. He had a great love for all his family. He spent his life always learning new things and enjoyed passing along his wealth of knowledge to anyone willing to learn. He loved to be outdoors riding around in the truck, out in the boat, on the motorcycle or on the snowmobile. He enjoyed many camping trips, trips to see the hot air balloon festivals, and the coast as well as being out in the woods. He could fix anything and enjoyed doing many projects, one of the most recent being his new fence. He looked forward to helping Dan work on his family's new home at the lake, a place he also loved to be. He was a paper maker in Millinocket for almost 30 years, he fixed many VCR's in the community and was also a stained glass artist.
Brian will be greatly missed by all who loved him. He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years Germaine (Howson) who has been his sweetheart since grammar school, his daughter Michelle and her husband Gary Charette, son Daniel and his wife Amy (Leet) Anderson, grandkids Evan McLaughlin, Kacie McLaughlin, Makayla Anderson, Molly Anderson and great granddaughter Loni McLaughlin, sister Donna and her husband Ron Gelinas, brother Scott Anderson and sister in law Christine Lynch, nieces and nephews David and Lisa Gelinas, Lori Strobeck, Clint and Tracy Howson, Kelley and John Lukeski, Morgan Lynch and Jaime Lavalle, Heather and James Tiganella, Lauren Anderson and Nathan Sprague and Andy Anderson, as well as numerous aunt's, uncle's and cousin's and friends and friends of the family that loved him as father too.
