The Passing of Peter Anderson

To the Williams community,

We just learned the sad news that Peter Anderson, an electrician at the college, passed away unexpectedly in the early hours this morning. 

A resident of North Adams, Pete attended local schools and graduated from Mount Greylock Regional High School in 1985. He then worked at Rickert Electric in Williamstown, starting out as an apprentice and eventually becoming a journeyman electrician. In 2012, he joined Electrical & Lighting Resources Inc. in North Adams, where he was as a foreman electrician before he came to Williams in July 2019. 

Details about a memorial service are not yet known, but I wanted to share this news now, given Pete’s place as a member  of the Williams community. 

Our deepest condolences go out to Pete’s family, colleagues and friends.
