August 24, 1927 – June 2, 2019
Harold Edward Andersen, 91, resident of St. Andrews Estates in Boca Raton, Florida, passed away on Sunday, June 2. He was a hardworking, faithful and loving husband, father and ‘far’ (grandfather). He is survived by his beloved wife, Alice, of 67 years and three children: Kenneth (and wife Marcia), Steven (and wife Carol) and Carol (and husband Jeff). He was blessed with 14 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.
While born in Brooklyn, NY, he grew up in Lista, Norway, during WWII and returned to the United States at 17 years old where he married, had a family and worked as a dockbuilder for 40 years. He and Alice were faithful members of 59th Street Lutheran Brethren Church and he was a long-serving trustee and deacon. They retired to Pennsylvania in 1989 and moved permanently to Florida five years ago. He was blessed with a long, healthy life. We rejoice that he is with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in heaven and that we will see him again one day.
