Andy will be missed by all that had a true relationship with him. Andy exemplifies what Jesus wanted as his followers. While "Christians" argue what it takes to be a christian, Andy demonstrated Jesus's expectation. It was defined at the "Lord's Supper" when Jesus told the guys that they "are to love one another, the way I have loved you". Andy, when I knew him, he saw no evil in others, he only saw their best. Thanks for being Andy. Dusty

Andy was such a kind soul and he will be missed by many, especially his sweet family. I’ll always cherish the childhood memories we have from growing up as cousins in Arco. Many fun times. Rest In Peace, my sweet cousin. ❤️

I am so sorry to hear of Andy’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with him at the Brownstock Department at the Pulp Mill. He was always a pleasure to work with and to work around. We hated to see him go but now wish he would have left sooner because he didn’t get to enjoy his retirement long. Rest In Peace my friend. You will be missed.

Tenille & I were best friends growing up. I just loved her daddy. He had the best personality & sense of humor. I remember him being an avid tennis player & he was good at it too. I’m so sorry for your loss❤️

I have known Andy for as long as i have known his wife Linda. I have seen him with my own kids aggravate them or for that matter every kid that came around. He aggravated them so much but they loved every second of it. He was one of a kind. Sweet soul and could make anyone laugh. Dear brother dear friend i will miss you . You were one of a kind. RIP Andy we will make every effort to make sure your wife stays safe and takes care of herself. Loved by all that knew you.
