Edward A. Anderson, of Hull, formerly of Boston’s Dorchester and Readville neighborhoods, died on April 3. He was 79.
The beloved son of the late Norman and Ruth Anderson, he was the devoted husband of Diane (Ferland) and the loving father of Denise and Jason Permatteo and children, Mireille and Andrew, of Leominster; Jill and Chris Miller and son, Arthur, of Quincy; and Erik Anderson of Quincy.
He was also the loving brother of Elizabeth and Bill Hurley, of Braintree, and Bill and Renee, of South Carolina. He was the dear uncle of Alison and John McDonough and children, Eamon and Mary Elizabeth, of Foxborough, and the late Matthew Hurley. He is also survived by several other nieces and nephews.
Ed spent several decades working in the magazine business, most recently at Boston Magazine. An avid runner, he could be seen running along Nantasket Beach several times a week until recently. He loved nothing more than a round of golf, Frank Sinatra, a good book, and a cold beer. But mostly he loved his family and many, many friends.
A celebration of life will be planned at a later date. Please visit www.dolanfuneral.com to share a condolence with the Anderson family.
