Andrew "Andy" Joseph Englande III

June 16, 1969January 4, 2020

Andrew “Andy” Joseph Englande, III, 50, passed away peacefully at his home on January 4, 2020 surrounded by family due to autoimmune encephalitis. Loving husband of Lori Lynn Illg Englande of twenty-two years, devoted father of Andrew “Drew” Joseph Englande, IV and Alex Raymond Englande. Son of Andrew Joseph “A.J.” Englande, Jr. and Bonnie Lynn Bellande Englande, brother of Deborah Lynn Englande Gros and Kevin Michael Englande (Allyson). He was preceded in death by Randy Gros, a beloved brother-in-law. Uncle to Stephen Michael Gros, Ashley Englande Gros, Ryleigh Englande Gros, Maggie Grace Guidry and Caroline Elizabeth Englande. Son-in-law of Jack Raymond and Joan Fritsch Illg and brother-in-law of Kristi Lynn Illg. He had many cousins and was a nephew to a host of aunts and uncles. Born on June 16, 1969 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Andy graduated from Holy Cross High School in 1987 and received both a Bachelor of Science in Business and a Master of Science in Public Health from Tulane University. Andy began his professional career focused on protecting our environment as a research associate at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine followed by employment at BASF Chemical Plant, ERM Southwest Consulting and Orion Refining Corporation. For the last eighteen years Andy worked at Shell Oil Company, most recently as a senior environmental engineer. He lived in Chalmette for most of his life but the last sixteen years he resided in Mandeville. As a coach of various sports, Andy touched the lives of numerous young children. He was extremely selfless whether it was reaching out to one person in need or working on community-service projects such as helping flood victims as he was a Katrina victim himself. Andy loved fishing, golfing, dancing and traveling. He had a great sense of humor and was the life of any party. His bright smile was a hallmark of his bubbling personality. He enjoyed listening to live concerts and, undoubtedly, he was a New Orleans Jazz Fest enthusiast. Andy was a dedicated family man, a conscientious worker, a generous, warmhearted person and a friend to many. He truly will be missed. The family wishes to thank his caretakers at St. Tammany Parish Hospital, Post Acute Medical (PAM) and the Heart of Hospice. A sincere thank you is extended to both Dr. Amy Jones and Dr. Craig Seicshnaydre. Their compassion, perseverance and kindness will always be remembered. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the charity or educational organization of your choice so that Andy’s spirit of giving continues. Family and friends are invited to attend services at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church at 501 Holy Trinity Drive in Covington, Louisiana on Saturday, January 11, 2020 beginning at 9:30 a.m. Mass will be held at 12:00 noon followed by interment at the St. Lazarus of Bethany Memorial Garden in Covington.

Lloyd and I cannot find the words to express the sadness we feel for you regarding the lost your son. Lloyd told me about the wonderful tributes that were paid to him. He is with God in heaven now, and someday all of you will be reunited with him, and there will be such joy. He lives on in your hearts, and in the hearts of all that loved him so much. RIP Andy with the angels. Love Cindy & Lloyd

I am so sorry to learn of Andy's passing for all of you and his friends. He was always with a huge smile. I loved working the gate with the other Basketball parents but especially with Andy. He was just so much fun.
He was such a great Dad, and so encouraging with his uber basketball knowledge, encouraging my son, Paul ( Stolin), and all others. I so appreciated this. He was so unselfish. My deepest sympathies are with you. Heaven got an angel. I know he is encouraging all from above, and likely has found a pickup game or two.

The tributes spoken by his friends and family members gave us insight into what a great young man your son was. We learned that your son was an exceptional person--a loving husband, father, son, brother, and nephew. Truly, you must be proud that your Andy was a role model to so many people. May the memories of the wonderful times you shared with him forever sustain you and your amazing family.

We are very sorry for the loss of your fine son Andrew. He was a wonderful father, person and professional. The world will miss him and remember him. I remember when he was less than a year old and hit a boy who was 2 years old. over fifty years ago. I wanted to get to the funeral but weather did not permit me to come. Our prays are for your family and hope to see you and Bonnie in the next year.

Dear A.J. and family: Your son Andy put up a long, courageous, and brave battle against the horrendous disease he was afflicted with for several years. Now Andy is finally at peace and in the wondrous hands of our Lord in Heaven. God bless all of you and your family at this time of sorrow. But while you weep for Andy's passing and remembering all the wonderful things he did while on this Earth, let each and every one of you know that Andy is now safe and completely free from all that terrible pain he suffered with on Earth and that he is comfortably in the hands of God in Heaven
