Mark E. Anderson, 65, of Salem, MA, formerly of Uxbridge, MA. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved companion, father, brother, son, grandfather and friend, Mark E. Anderson. Devoted to each other, Mark leaves Jennifer Moore, the love of his life with whom he shared many life-giving and meaningful years together in Salem, MA. Mark loved his family deeply, especially his three beautiful daughters, Erika Johnson and her husband Bryan, Elizabeth Deters and her husband Dave and Katherine Anderson, all of Uxbridge. Mark would consider "his girls" to be the very best of him. Mark was forever grateful to his former wife and dear friend, Marilyn Nydam of Uxbridge. He adored his 6 grandchildren- Benjamin, Margaret and Samuel Johnson and Caleb, Micah and Gabriel Deters.

Mark also leaves behind his very witty mother, Helen Anderson, his dear sister Joan and her husband Jack Tomasiello of CT, and their sons Adam and Peter Tomasiello of NC. Mark and Joan shared a special bond which was wrapped in their humor and love for one another. Mark's father, John Edward Anderson, predeceased him. 

Mark enjoyed many successful careers. He began as a firefighter in Hopkinton and then continued on as a police officer in Hopkinton, Uxbridge and Douglas. He later became a land surveyor and was a founding partner of Heritage Design Group in Whitinsville. Mark was also a talented carpenter, building his family a beautiful home as well as gifting many family and friends with pieces of homemade furniture over the years.
