Dr. Anderson was my very first college professor in 1979 in Columbus. Our entire class enjoyed him very much. He always had a smile on his face and made us want to learn. His nick name from the students (after class) was "Jolly John". Our class was at 7:00 a.m. . He started off the first day of class playing "the Trout" and danced in front of the board. One of the students spoke out of turn. Dr. Anderson smiled and said get
serious. "Only 2 of you will graduate in 4 years". Four years later 4 of us did. I am sorry for your loss. I wish I could tell him thank you for what he did for us.
So very sorry for your loss. It's been a difficult year in that regard. My thoughts and heart are with you and your family.
We had the most wonderful pleasure of meeting a buddy of our Dad who flew together and were shot down on their final mission during WWII. We met John in Denver, Co only a few short years ago and what a sight to witness the hugs and exchange of words between two fellow buddies of the Air Force 388th. John's account of their experience became more alive to us of their fight for mankind. We are thankful for John - he is a hero to us.
