VilhjÃ¡lmur Ãrni Sveinsson aka Lee Anderson, 31 years old passed away on the 10th of April, 2016. Beloved husband of Peleiake Anderson (Rice) since October 2011.
Lee was educated in Iceland with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, a master’s degree in Physiology, and multiple certifications post graduate. He worked as a strength coach in Iceland working with top competitive athletes, before coming to the United States. He was employed at Renaissance ClubSport in Aliso Viejo as an elite trainer and strength coach. His programs delivered a unique approach with a focus on improved neuromuscular stability and motor control.
He enjoyed carpentry, web design, drawing, writing, teaching, baking, fishing, hiking, and most of all helping people become the best they could be, hopefully with a smile on their face.
Lee will be remembered as a caring and intelligent man, who was always willing to lend a hand. He had a great sense of humor and loved making people laugh.
