Condolence: Dr. Anderton was an inspirational professor who will be deeply missed at NMU and throughout the Marquette community. I am a graduate in Physical Geography with an Earth Science minor, having had quite a few classes with Dr. A. He was a personable, light-hearted, and deeply passionate teacher who always managed to find the time and care amid his busy schedule to talk with his students. A great guide and inspiration! My deepest sympathies to his children, family and close friends! Know that his Spirit lives on through all the lives he has touched. Thank you Dr. A! Love and Peace

His passing is a loss I felt keenly because of the affirming time I spent with him at NMU and because of his future contributions--personal and professional--that are now lost.

Condolence: I am an NMU freshman and am currently taking one of Dr. Anderton's classes. I am terribly shocked and saddened by his passing. Though I only knew him for half a semester he immediately made a huge impression on me. His love for his job and his enthusiasm in the classroom made me enjoy going to his class every day. My very sincerest condolences go out to his family as my thanks go out to him for the impression he made on me and my peers. He was a great man and a fantastic professor and will be missed.

Condolence: I met John through working on a trail project. His class worked on some historical information for our interpretive work. John was gentle, smart, thoughtful and committed. I will miss seeing his beautiful ski glide on the trails. This community has lost a very good person. My condolences to his family.

Condolence: John was a true friend, colleague and of course one of the finest ski training and racing partners I have known. I will sorely miss his professional generosity and his friendship. My thoughts are with all of his family members and I will keep many great memories of the time I was able to spend in his company.
