Andy was a close friend of mine during our freshman year of college at USC. He was always outgoing, funny, and willing to stand up for his friends. Unfortunately, over time I lost touch with him but in just a couple of years he made a big impact on my life. He will be missed and my thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.

My condolences go to Andy's family on this heartbreaking loss.

I knew Andy through his business, Green Innovations, which did work at our home these past few years. Andy was always so upbeat and professional, and the business he built was really top-notch -- the best and most reliable I had ever dealt with. I'm glad I got to know him, even though it was in this limited way.

I have known Andy since we were 10 years old; we've played baseball together for many of them. We've worked together, we've played golf together, and we've misbehaved together! I will sincerely miss the time I shared with you and your family! Andy's kindness, his goofiness, his love, and his positivity will never be forgotten and always mourned. I love you bud!

I have known Andy throughout his childhood and adult life and remember him fondly for his quick wit, intelligence, ready and engaging smile and laughter, his energy and his winning personality! Loved his red hair, his love of animals and how he tackled life with vigor and determination! He will be missed.
