I remember Mr. Andress from my Bosse days from 1958 - 1962! He was a fine man and good teacher having him as my teacher in one class! Always friendly & supportive, I was lucky he came into my life! Didn't know he was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity which I later joined at Indiana University! RIP brother Andress!
