Remembering Harold "Andy" Andersen
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, 'This was a man!'
- William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
There is no other individual who has done more to ensure the 30 year existence of Nebraska Shakespeare than Andy Andersen. Serving with Marian as founding Board Chairs for the first 20 years of our history. He shall be missed. Andy's favorite play was Julius Caesar but he so often quoted from the famous Henry V soliloquy:
From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be remember'd;We few, we happy few, we band of brothers
-William Shakespeare, Henry V
Andy is Survived by his wife of 63 years, Marian; son, David Andersen (Leslie); daughter, Nancy Andersen; 6 grandchildren: Lindsey, Robby, Katie Andersen, and Jack, James, Grant Karger. The Andersens have requested memorials to the Andersen Honors Scholars Fund and Nebraska Shakespeare.
