Curly Anderson was a one of a kind man. Over the years I played a lot of sports and to this day Curly was the only parent allowed in the locker room and if he wasn’t in there we wondered where he was. In 1974 LB won the BVC in football and Curly was as important to that team as any member was. He was there to strap your shoulder pads, your helmet or to give that pat on the back. Not once did any parent or coach question why he was in the locker room. He was a great man that we were all fortunate to know. We will miss Curly!

my sympathy goes to you and your families with the loss of your dad. My father, Ralph Huss, used to farm down the road, the Heldman farm. I believe Parley is named after the man who dad cash rented from. You all were very young, but I remember your mom and dad. Good People and always a friend to my dad. They are now in heaven talking about the great times of farming years ago.

I am sorry to hear of Howad's passing.While neighbors at the Brookstone Villa's Howard was always busy doing things. He was used to keeping thing up and busy on the farm. I was president of the villa's and he was always at my door with ideas of things to do or help me with.
When he and June moved to that special house on Mainstreet a place she always had desired, several of us visited. I can still remember all the little rooms up staris and all over, such an interesting house He will be missed by you all. One time when they were down south for the winter, he had heard that his condo drive was not plowed. I sent him pictures of snow piled 10 feet high all over the condo area. He replied no problem, he was glad he was not up here.

We wanted you to know our hearts and thoughts are with you. "Curly" was a great man and we have many wonderful memories from Liberty Benton days. We're sure he's in heaven telling stories with his "straight-face" delivery. Prayers--Karen & Steve.

I remember your Dad driving us to Pony League games in that great car (was it a DeSoto?) and being a quiet man with an inner fire. I spent some time with your family during sleep overs in Jr. high and was always treated kindly and got to know Parley a little, too, even though Randy was always my catcher (it seemed!).
Go rest high on that mountain.
