Andrew Shearin sauntered out of his mother’s womb on March 15, 1966. He was born at St. Rose De Lima Hospital in Henderson, Nevada.

In his youth Andrew played baseball and soccer. Andrew graduated from Basic High School in 1984. Andrew was a youth baseball coach.

Andrew attended college and completed his apprenticeship for the Nevada State Labor Commissioner in 1993. Last year Andrew received his 30-year pin from the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada. He is well respected in the industry as a skilled craftsman and welder.

Andrew was a proud legacy member of the Local 525 Plumbers & Pipefitters Union. By proud proxy of his father Jerome Shearin, Andrew belonged to the American Legion Post #40.

Andrew loved hunting, fishing, ice fishing, any fishing, sports events, motorcycle riding street and dirt bikes (where he and Richard TenEyck decided to buy Banshees the day they got laid off). Andrew was an avid BBQ pit master. Family gatherings were his favorite type of gatherings where often he and his brother Martin had the friendliest BBQ wars. Andrew’s favorite holiday was every holiday, he especially loved Christmas and the 4th of July! He enjoyed camping and was often spotted on the Dark Side of Success Loop near Ely, Nevada. Andrew was game for anything.

What made Andrew unique is from A-W! Andrew was an animal lover both mammals and reptiles, his biggest love was his Weimaraner, Andrew was literally a natural at every sport. You name it: ping pong, pool, baseball, golf, darts, horse shoes no matter what it was he could compete with the best! He was a good mechanic. Andrew could eye any measurement to a T. He taught his nephew how to shoot. Andrew was humble and it is often said that he was the easiest going guy ever. Andrew was always smiling! Andrew impacted countless lives. He taught nieces, nephews, and kids how to ice fish, cut down Christmas trees and so much more. He could be counted on by any family member or friend in need. Andrew influenced others when asking his opinion of their future careers. Andrew influenced so many people with the love of outdoors. He got people out of the house with hunting, fishing, frog gigging and so much more.

Andrew was preceded in his death by his father Jerome Shearin. Andrew is survived by his mother Cecelia Shearin, brother Martin Shearin (wife Laura), brother Stephen, sister Jennifer (husband Larry).

No words will ever compare to how much we would rather have you here Andrew. I love you dearly, always have and I always will.
You and those dang dimples!
You taught the kids and I how to really enjoy nature so much more. That is the legacy you left with us.
I have a million words to say and instead will wait patiently to hug you again someday.

Love,

Kelly

I knew Andrew since he was a Freshman in High School, and I ended up being his sister in law for many years. He was always so friendly, kind and funny 😁 Even after our divorce, he was never judgmental and always accepting of me in their family. I am very saddened by his passing away and I am so sorry to his family and friends for their loss. God bless everyone who is grieving, especially his lovely mother, Cecilia, my heart goes out to you! Love you all❤️ Heaven gained an angel and he is laughing with his dad, Jerry❤️

Sprinkles was always willing to perform so many of the tasks that needed to be done at the Americsn Legion Post. From cooking on the grill to changing out the air conditioning filters or re-shellacing the bar. I personally will miss his terrific smile and easy going demeanor. Smile down on us and bring your endearing heartfelt laughter to our memories. May you rest in peace with the shiningest Angel's in Heaven.

I love Andrew, he was such a great guy. I've known him for many years. I work in the cage at the Rainbow, every time he would walk by, I mean every time, he would always say Hi Kat. It made my day. I will miss him dearly.
