Suzanne Downing, Must Read Alaska: Services for Mayor Anderson of Soldotna
During his 36 years in Soldotna, Dr. Anderson made his mark on his community as a family physician, an in vitro fertilization specialist, public servant, Boy Scout leader, church leader, dog musher, and avid gardener.

As a physician, obstetrics was his favorite part of family medicine, and he was the only in vitro fertilization doctor doing test-tube babies in the state of Alaska. During his career, he delivered more than 5,000 babies, with more than 300 of them test-tube babies.

Bringing those little miracles to those families is the true legacy he leaves behind.
