There are so many who share in the sadness of Coach Anderson's passing. The influence he had on an entire neighborhood and the children who grew up within it cannot easily be explained, but I am certain that all those who read this know exactly what I mean. There are so few people who can honestly say had a positive affect upon so many. Norm Anderson was one of those few. We are all better to have known him.
Sorry to hear of Coach's passing. He was a great man. Didn't take any guff from any of the teenagers that he ran into at the play ground. I always felt at ease when my kids and I went to the park after school to play at the park. We will miss him dearly. Sympathy to his family.
Mrs. Nancy Novak and family, Chi. Ill.
My deepest sympathies to Coach's family. Coach was a wonderful man and I have many fond memories from Pierce Playground. He was a blessing to many kids and was always there for us...
My deepest sympathies to Coach's family, friends, loved ones. I remember him fondly from my days at Pierce, a big teddy bear. He touched many lives.
Coach helped raise thousands of kids and touched countless number of lives. I cant begin to tell the hundreds of stories. He was truly an amazing man and a part of Andersonville history. I was truly blessed as were so many neighborhood kids to have such a solid role model. Thanks for everything coach and enjoy your two weeks out of the park. My deepest condolences to his entire family.
