Henry "Tony" Anderson Jr. - Class Of 1964

In particular the Wisconsin Lutheran College "Old Timers" basketball group, which Tony was the "commish" of and all-time 3 point shooter. We will miss you Tony, but are assured that you will be at home and in comfort in God's heaven. We want to thank Zilber Hospice for their unbelievable care and comfort given to Tony during his stay.

Shocked to hear this very sad news. We sat together at our 50th reunion dinner and had a great time. He was a very kind soul.

Tony was a good friend growing up, he lived 1 block from our house, my brother, Nick and I would go over to his house to play basketball.

Sorry I couldn't be at the reunion.

So sad to hear of Tony's passing. I saw him at the 50th reunion and often ran into him at Mayfair. He was a true gentleman and he will be missed.

I sat at the same table with Tony at our 50th. I enjoyed the evening talking to Tony.

If there isn't a basketball team in heaven, Tony will form one.  He was a great guy.  I attended his funeral with several of our reunion committee members and was so pleased to see how many people were there to pay their respects to Tony. I think everyone he ever played basketball with attended since there were a multitude of men over 6'3" present each telling his own story about Tony and his beloved basketball games. His WHS letter sweater was on display along with many pictures of his days at Washington.  Rest in peace Tony!!!  You left us way too soon.
