In Memoriam: Hugh Anderson, 1935 – 2010 

It is with regret the Journal announces the passing of financial journalism instructor and seasoned financial columnist and editor Hugh Anderson.

The veteran finance and economics writer and editor was known for his no-nonsense style. After the passing of his second wife Ena Lazarus (S BA 69) in 2006, he passionately shared his lengthy journey through her illness, his grief and his recovery with readers of the Gazette in his Together & Apart column. His words, both in print and as grief facilitator at the Jewish General Hospital, helped others through their grief of loss and bereavement. He also wrote the Seniors column in the Gazette.

Anderson was also known by those close to him for his sense of humour and love of a good debate. He will be sorely missed by friends, family and colleagues alike.

He leaves to mourn his son Colin and daughter Sarah, as well as his first wife, Freda Hammond.

A funeral was held March 7 at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex. Donations in his memory may be made to Ena Lazarus Memorial Fund at the St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation. Condolences may be posted to a guest book online until April 4.
