John George Anderson Jr., 66, of Fort Myers, FL passed away on April 20, 2018 at Hope Hospice. He was born on November 12, 1951 in Waterbury, CT to John George Anderson Sr. and Mary (Kiriako) Anderson. John was a successful Entrepreneur with the most current business being the Owner of an Aggregate Mine.  His life’s passion was on the race track; John began racing in the Northeast as soon as his feet could touch the pedal at the age of 16.  Once he had conquered the drag racing circuit, he found his greatest achievement and happiness behind the wheel of SK Modified race cars for the next 20 years.  He was an avid NASCAR Racing enthusiast and also enjoyed golf, and billiards. Most people know John as “JA”. He traveled every inch of the country by owning and driving 18 wheelers under radar. He loved playing in the huge sand boxes with his monster machines – a dirt dog, as he liked to say. John’s personality was larger than life – his quick wit and quick fist kept everyone on their toes. Those who was fortunate enough to ride in the passenger seat with JA had the ride of their lives. One of his favorite sayings was, “you’d better hang on with both hands, because it’s checkers or wreckers when you are riding with me!”.  JA lived life in the only lane he knew, ‘The Fast Lane’, and he took everyone along for the ride. Generous to a fault, he wanted to share his wealth and experiences with every life he could touch, and he did.  There are a thousand stories and a thousand laughs in his memory – he wanted us all to remember him this way when we celebrate his life. Loved by many, cherished by all. His life IS his legacy, and his memory will go on forever. He is survived by his children, Jennifer Anderson-Humphrey; Jaime Anderson; Shawna Anderson, and Alan Fontaine; his mother, Mary (Kiriako) Anderson; his sister, Mary “May” Rotondo; his 2 brothers, William Anderson Sr. and David Anderson; his 2 grandchildren, Jace and Jade Humphrey; and his faithful dog, Oreo. John was preceded in death by his father, John George Anderson Sr. Arrangements are in the care and trust of Cremations by Baldwin Brothers
