  41. George was a great man who taught me as a young boy how to not only play basketball but play it the right way. He taught me sportsmanship, confidence, discipline as well as how to win and lose (but mostly win). Skills that last a life time. He could inspire us kids in his gentle yet strong way and showed me Through his actions how a leader and man should act and behave.

    My condolences to the whole Anderson family.
