Bryan Larson comments on Lee Anderson's passing


SWCS Class of '66 Classmate Bryan Larson sent me this email about our late classmate Lee Anderson this morning that he said was ok to share with everyone... Bryan can be contacted by email by clicking in his name above.



Thank you for posting Lee Anderson's passing on our blog. I have known Lee since we were four years old, we played together as kids we went to church and Sunday school
at Gloria Dei Lutheran in Lakewood, and were confirmed from there in 1961.

We remained close friends through grade school and high school. When we graduated from Southwestern Lee enlisted in the Navy in July of 66 and I enlisted in the
Coast Guard in September. We always kept in touch with each other. In 1968 Lee married Marge Chapman, I had the honor of being his best man.

Lee made a career of the Navy serving over 20+ years and retiring as a Chief Petty Officer. After his retirement Lee and Marge moved to Kentucky to try his hand in farming
with his older sister Karen and her husband.

In 2001 Lee was diagnosed with PLS Primary Lateral Sclerosis. He was afflicted with this horrible disease for over 16 years. He fought the long 
fight with the help of his loving wife Marge and his two children Thad and Tammy.

Classmate Lee Anderson has passed away

HARRODSBURG, Kentucky - I received word today that classmate Lee Anderson has passed away.

Lee had been ill for some years, though gamely kept his spirits alive and inspired lots of people around him.

I last saw Lee at the our 40th SWCS Class Reunion held in Mayville at Webb's Resort.

That's all to report for the moment. 

Below are several photos I snagged off Lee's Facebook page.

RIP, Lee. Keep the wind at your back.
