Born Feb. 25, 1987, in Watertown, NY, the son of George and Dianna Anderson, he graduated from General Brown Central School in 2005 and attended Jefferson Community College.

George worked as a machine operator at Jain Industries in Watertown. He was very proud of his work at Jain and the opportunity that was given him.
