On Sept. 26, 2010, our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Jeffery Richard Anson, lost his battle of pulmonary disease, and departed this life. He joins family and friends who preceded him. He passed peacefully at St. Peter’s Hospital.
Jeff was 69 years old and was born Jan. 10, 1941, in Watsonville, Calif.
He worked as a QA inspector/engineer for Lockheed Aerospace in Sunnyvale, Calif., and retired to Helena in 2002 with his loving wife of 40-plus years, Linda.
