One of the many things I admired about Doc Anderson was his great sense of humor. He always took time to enjoy small things in life that were enjoyable. I practiced with him for 5 years in Glenwood City before his retirement and would say he enjoyed smelling the roses every day. We also enjoyed Thursday afternoon golf league for many years.
