John and Angelina Anderson, of Fort Myers, Fla., passed away with their loving family by their sides. Both were born in New York City.
John W. Anderson passed away on March 10, 2013, at the age of 84. Angelina M. Anderson passed away from a broken heart on March 23, 2013, at the age of 82. A true love story.
John was a computer engineer with Univac and worked in the Quad-Cities for 25 years. John helped design the computer the first time our country went to the moon, and it was ultimately John's computer that brought back Apollo 13.
Angelina "Ann" was active in bowling, hobby, red hats and Foxy Ladie.
John and Ann leave behind to cherish their loving memory three children, Lynn Capps, Susan Anderson and Christine Anderson-Buser; two brothers, Richie and Ronnie Passafaro; one sister, Stella Blaze; five grandchildren, David York, Trina Luebbe, Heather Osterkamp, Nicole Dolan and Caleb John Buser; and nine great-grandchildren. John and Ann also are survived by countless special loving friends from everywhere who were proud to call them their friends.
A celebration of John and Angelina's life together was held April 13, by their community in Fort Myers. Private services will be held at sea where they wish their ashes to be placed together. May they always have fair winds and following seas.
Those that wish to express condolences to the family at this difficult time are urged to visit John and Ann's memorial webpage at andersonpatterson.com and sign the guest book.
