John was a good friend and always enjoyable to be around.   I remember watching him along with the rest of the AHHS swim team.  He was an excellent swimmer.  per his obituary John passed away Monday June  10, 199l  at his home.  He was born Feb 11, 1946 and was 45 at the time of his death.  He was noted to be an All-American swimmer at AHHS.  Then he went to Yale and was on the varsity tennis and swim team.   He received his M.B.A from the University of Chicago in 1971 and worked for the First Boston Corporation in New York and later became the senior vice President of CIGNA.  In 1985 he became the pesident and chief investment officer of the constitution capital management co.  He biked annually to raise funds for a cancer institute in Boston.  He was survived by his wife Kathleen Heneage Anderson and 3 children Hillary, Molly and Jay.  Memorial service was in Granby,  Conn.  We miss you John.   May you rest in peace.

John played piano in my first band. We were at South Intermediate then. I remember a few years later the Arthur Hill dual swim meet in which John anchored the medley relay. When he began his 100 yard freestyle leg, he was one pool length behind. He caught up, swimming 4 lengths while the opponent swam three: John touched him out by a fraction of a second. One of the most thrilling athletic moments I've ever seen. I felt devastated when I learned of John's death. I keep him and his family in prayer. I miss him very much.   --Matthew Beach

John was always so thoughtful and friendly to everyone without question.  His athletic ability was something to be admired- He certainly is missed.

John really was such a great person.  He was always thoughtful to others.  The swim meets were always fun to watch and that swim when he made up so much length and then barely touched out his opponent was an awesome moment. His young passing was very sad indeed.
