24 feb TIL MINNE OM ANDERS

Anders var et fast innslag på Frisks A-lags kamper, og hans beste kamerat, Marius Mao Strøm, kan bekrefte at han levde og åndet for ishockey.

 

Inspirasjon for alle

– En humørspreder gjenspeiler seg i Anders. Han elsket hockey, til tross for at han aldri selv fikk kjent isen under beina. Han møtte alltid opp for å støtte laget sitt, forteller Marius om bestekameraten som har satt sine spor hos spillere og supportere, både i Frisk og i andre klubber.

– Han var en inspirasjon for oss alle!

– Anders brukte hele vinteren på å se hockey. Og hele sommeren på å planlegge vinteren og tenkte på hockey. Han elsket å reise, og var det en ishall på turen så skulle den besøkes. Han var stadig innom Cam og Chris (Abbotts) og de sier selv at Anders var deres norske familie og største inspirasjonskilde. Han er kjent for sin store stemme, men vil alltid bli husket for sitt store hjerte.

– Du vil aldri bli glemt. Du vil alltid følge oss!

EN SISTE HILSEN FRA CAM ABBOTT

Fra Sverige sender Cam Abbott en siste hilsen til sin gode venn Anders:

I’m sure Anders has touched each and every one of us in a different, yet similar way. I first met Anders, and his true friend Marius, early in the season when Chris and I played for Frisk. Anders and Marius would stop by the Askerhallen after school each day and watch some of the practice. With a big grin on his face, Anders was always quick to remind us we had to win the next game, because he would be there in his corner cheering us on. I remember scoring a big goal that year and celebrating with Chris, and Flaten and team mates up against the glass in front of Anders. He was right there scoring along with us. Pure joy.

Anders’ positive, encouraging attitude was an overwhelming inspiration. His positive mindset allowed him to turn any personal challenge into an opportunity. I remember calling him a few years ago. He was in the hospital for a week due to some complications. While he could have been pissed that the doctors wanted to keep him for another 3 nights, he explained it was no problem as there were two hot nurses scheduled to work the next three days. Classic Anders!

While our time in Asker came to an end, our friendship with Anders had just started. We stayed in touch every few months. He came with his father and friends to visit us in Angelholm and Lulea, Sweden over the years. I cherish memories of those visits greatly. Sharing meals, having a beer and talking about hockey, just hanging out.

Anders was the type of guy that always left you feeling positive, feeling better about yourself. A truly special guy. I will miss him and our genuine friendship. May you Rest in Peace!
