He was uncle Andy for me when I relocated to Wichita from Fall River. Andy kept me punctual, he made the best appetizers and he was a genuinely good person. Some of our favorite memories looking back on our "family dinners" are Andy's giggle fits or waiting for him to slap us for cutting an obnoxious piece of pie from the center when he wasn't looking. His Wichita family will miss him immensely.
