    So very sorry for your family & for friends of our Andy. I cherished his caring & giving heart. Andy also had a unique sense of humor that I will certainly miss. He so much enjoyed sharing photos of his children & grandchildren, and sharing stories of his experiences & love for them. Andy made friends wherever he went. He was so likable & easy to love. He took great pride in his work & brought a distinctive style to professionalism. He loved design of clothing & it showed as he always looked & dressed his best in public. I will miss the time we spent talking about & sharing life experiences, strengths & hope. I enjoyed the notes & hand made cards that he would leave on my cubicle. They were always fun & heartfelt. Andy was my friend at work & beyond. I’m so happy that he got to meet my husband Rob at dinner with friends. I’m so happy that I got to meet some of Andy’s family also. What a treasure your father/grandfather is. I learned to love Andy’s family through his heart. Peace to you all, as Andy awaits the Return. ❤️

    Though my time knowing Andy was brief, his kindness and deeply loving Spirit shone through over the phone from the first time we spoke. In person, it was even brighter and warming to be in his presence. Indeed, a rare and beautiful breed. I know his family and coworkers will miss him deeply. May you all find comfort in having had such a wonderful person in your life, as he truly made this world a better place.

    Andy was one of the most kind, caring, compassionate persons I have ever known. He always looked on the bright side of life, never letting any negativity influence how he interacted with or treated others. During our early morning, pre-work conversations, I got to know Andy on a more personal level, and found him to be very genuine. He not only talked the talk, but he also walked the walk. His desire, and effectiveness at helping people showed up every single day. He helped innumerable people here at work, and also on the bus as he traveled to and from work. I can’t imagine anyone knowing Andy not being enriched by the experience. Busy as he was at work, Andy made a point to show his thoughtfulness, always being the one in the office to remember to get a card for this or that employee on special occasions. Andy set the example for all of us in how to treat each other. I will miss him. Rest in peace, Andy.
