He has been described by many as being exceedingly kind, compassionate, a great conversationalist, a generous and loving man by his family, friends, colleagues, and patients. He always had a good joke and a smile on his face. He embraced and cherished every moment of life. Dr. Anderson was a loving husband who adored his wife, children, and grandchildren. He always had time to lend an ear and to counsel and support those he loved. He celebrated the success of those around him and would make it known that he was everyone's number one fan. He was our beloved "Papa" who shared his love so freely and had no hesitation expressing his pride in his children and grandchildren. He sat through hours of graduations, vocal concerts, theatrical plays, and ball games. He never told his grandchildren, "no". His favorite activities included reading, puzzles, endless bingo games and traveling, his favorite place being San Diego. He will be very deeply missed by everyone.
