In memory of

Jeffrey R. Anson

January 10, 1941 – September 26, 2010

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.

Jeff loved and devoted his life to his family, his pets, automobiles and singing in the choir. He was a wonderfully sweet man who loved everyone and served God with all his heart. He will be sorely missed and remembered with love and kindness by all.

Jeff is survived by his wife, Linda Anson; son, Kevin Turner of California; son, David Anson of Helena; daughter, Karrie Grover of Helena; brother, Mal Anson of Aptos, Calif. Jeff also has 15 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

In honor of Jeffery Anson, please send any donations to the Lewis and Clark County Humane Society in his name.

  2. Dear Linda, David, Kevin and Kerry,
    My heart goes out to you and all of your beloved family members. I trust that you’ll celebrate the wonderful and loving man that Jeff is, for as long as you keep him alive within yourselves he will always be with you. I hold dear to my heart his lifting smile and soft spoken ways. And least I add his jovial Santa Claus laugh! Never an ill word spoken from his lips I have treasured memories of a peaceful caring man that I am blessed to have had in my life. Not with you in person but in spirit – Love, Cindy
