Soldotna Mayor Nels Anderson, who has missed some meetings recently, passed away this (Tuesday) morning, according to a social media post by his son Nate. He wrote:

Our dad, John Nels Anderson MD, “Doc”, Mayor Anderson passed to the other side this morning. I couldn’t be more proud to be his son. He went down fighting to the end.
Love you dad. Will never watch a Dodger Game, eat a bowl of chocolate chip mint ice cream, or back bounce Big Eddy without thinking of you. Till we meet again. -- Nate and Matt Anderson
