Frank Anders: great BBC president, worker & beloved person has passed

Frank Anders: great BBC president, worker & beloved person has passed

Hello All

I am passing on an email we received yesterday from Tom & Peggy Dymond:

Tom and I got a call yesterday from Kathy Anders. Frank Anders passed away this week after a long battle with a Parkinson's related illness.  Frank and Kathy have been our friends since 1971; they are our first friends in MD.  We visited them at their home in Hunt Valley two weeks ago. Kathy was her usual up-beat self.  She has been Frank's rock all through this terrible illness.

As many of you know, Frank was an avid bicyclist and tennis player until his illness took its toll on his balance.  Kathy said the last tandem ride they did was in 2012.  It's been so very sad to see such an out-going, funny, enthusiastic person lose first his balance, his mobility, and then his speech. 

Frank was president of BBC and a board member for many years.  He and Kathy ran Kent County Spring Fling for about 10 years and led numerous other BBC events.  But it was always Frank's enthusiasm and people skills that shone through.  Frank LOVED people; he loved to tell jokes and stories. Frank Anders will be missed by everyone who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, the Anders / Geipe family requests donations to organizations that have helped Frank and Kathy get through the past few years.

Kathy sent the following details today:

If anyone wants to make a donation, the organizations are:
Maryland Association for Parkinson Support, Inc.
PO Box 450
Brooklandville, MD 21022
MarylandParkinsonSupport.org
or
CurePSP
1206 York Rd, Suite L-4
Lutherville, MD 21093
psp.org

We'll send out details about a "Celebration of Life" party in the future.
Thanks,
Kathy
