Andrew Louis Borghese Sr., age 90, of Columbus, OH, entered the gates of heaven on July 31, 2022. Born on May 17, 1932, he was known by most as Andy. Andy was proceeded in death by his parents Flaviano “Frank” and Anna Borghese, beloved wife, Opal, brother, Arnold, grandson, Frankie and great-grandson, Jaxton. He is survived by sisters, Mary Lou Palma and Rita (George) Berninger and children, Frank Borghese, Anna (Cliff) Kemmerling and Andrew Borghese Jr. He leaves behind grandchildren, Erika (Bryan) Kelley, Dominick Borghese and Brittany (Mitchell) Sturgeon, as well as 8 great grandchildren. Andy graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School followed by 2 years of service in the Army. After serving his country, he worked 47 years between Cecutti Bakery and Sanese Services. Andrew was most passionate about his faith, family, and sports. He enjoyed Yankees Baseball, Notre Dame Football, and Ohio State Athletics. No matter the time or place, he was there for his friends and family, always placing others before himself. He coached youth football and basketball for underprivileged children where he left a lasting impact helping shape the lives of many. His loved ones will miss him dearly. As Andy would say “that’s Amore”. He cared for all of you deeply. Take advice from Andy, "Always do the right thing". The family will hold a graveside service on Friday, August 5, 2022 at 10 am, at Saint Joseph Cemetery, 6440 S High St, Lockbourne, OH 43137.
