I was saddened to hear that Dr. Anderson had passed away recently. I was a Political Science student of his from 1979 - 1983 and enjoyed his dry wit and passion for politics. All my best to his family.
It's sad to think that just a year ago you and Mom were out here for Thanksgiving. One of my favorite memories of that time was seeing you with Owen & Luke taking a walk - I can still see it in my head and it makes me feel good. I still have the postcards you sent the kids from the lake, telling them about the animals up there. Another favorite recent memory - you & I were home and you found Luke's M&M's!! I love the sound of your laugh!! We miss you & love you Dennis
Let us be grateful to the people that make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Despite Dennis's disease, he truly loved you deeply. Life does not need to be perfect to be wonderful. You were both blessed to have one another.
To Dennis from your DRB--oh what fun we had trotting around to doctors, grocery stores--remember the first time I lost you in Krogers and from then on I made you wear a red sweater! More fun deciding what to eat and after that huge hamburger and cheese you told Sandy you had peanut butter and jelly for lunch--they came out from the kitchen to see if you could get around it, we took half of it home,remember the time we ate at Steak and Shake and you saw Peter Ujvagi and wondered why he was there--I told you it was probably to eat lunch as there was no political campaign going on. Often you did not know where we were going but you continued to ask and when we got to the doctor's office none of us really knew why you were there, most of all the Doctor at MCO.
I will miss out little trips, love, Sharon Z-D
Sandy, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Dennis will be remembered by all who have touched his life. He was a very caring and gentle soul and is now at peace with out beloved Saviour. God love you always.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know that losing a loved one is so hard , and I do keep you all in my prayers.
Sis, I am so sorry for you loss of Dennis. I know you were dedicated to him like you are to everything you do. Take care you are in my Prayers and I think of you often.
I was a student research assistant for Dr Anderson in 1971-72 and remember him as a very warm-hearted and kind man. My condolences to his friends and family.

Dennis and I were colleagues in the B.G.S.U. Political Science Department. I always admired him for his insights, his intelligence, and for his reasoned positions. We enjoyed many good conversations over a beer or two at Kaufman's Restaurant in Bowling Green. My sympathies to Sandy, Suzanne, Dori, and all of the families and friends.
To a very kind hearted person.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
My prayers and sympathy go out to Sandra and Family. xoxo
Dr. Anderson was one of my absolute favorite professors at BGSU, and I genuinely loved his classes. His sharp wit, his great experiences, and his keen knowledge of politics made classes so enjoyable. I am honored that in my time at BGSU, he not only was my professor, but he became my friend. I will always cherish our conversations, and the memories I have of him. He not only supported me in the classroom, but my political endeavors as well. I will miss him greatly.
I am a former student of Dr. Anderson. I have such fond memories of his classes and his passion for politics. He was very thoughtful in his delivery of the material and had great respect and kindness for his students. I often wondered where he was and how he was doing. I remember when one of his parents was going through the disease that he suffered from. He showed such love and kindness when sharing their struggle. I will remember him as a very positive and large part of my college experience.
I knew when I met Dennis we were as opposite as any two people could be, but I also knew he was the kindest man I would ever come to know and that I would be there to love and care for him the rest of his life. xoxo
As a former student of his, I am saddened by his passing. It was an honor to have met him. My condolences to the family.
