January 16, 1995 - October 12, 2020

Andrew Jordan Luetkehans (Hans to his friends) got to his final resting place on Monday, October 12 after a four and a half year battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma. He fought the good fight the only way he knew how- with a fierce tenacity. He was truly a warrior.

Andrew grew up in Wheaton, Illinois where he played soccer for Wheaton Academy. He later attended Taylor University on a soccer scholarship. After graduation, he and his wife became proud residents of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Andrew had a fun-loving sense of competition, and was a gloating champion of all goofy games including, but certainly not limited to: Beersby, Corn Hole, Jenga, Sequence, Settlers of Catan, Mario party, Darts, Mini-Golf, and Bowling.

Andrew was a faithful friend to many. In his 25 years of life he never once broke a promise. He valued loyalty above all else, and his relationships were deep and intentional. He was truly the biggest fan and advocate of those he loved.

He was, and will always be, the type of person whose life simply imprinted on those who knew him, and he will forever be a gaping but love-filled hole in the hearts of so many. He is survived by his wife Alycia Luetkehans. Parents, Daniel and Carol Luetkehans. Brother Joshua (Meghan) Luetkehans. Sisters Jenna (Stewart) Robinson and Danielle (Christopher) Jahns. Grandmothers Sheila Luetkehans and Barbara Graf. Nieces, Londyn, Hazel, Brooklynn, and Sydney. And nephews Samuel, Rory, Wyatt, and Grayson.

He entered the gates of Heaven just months behind his beloved uncle, Reed, and weeks behind his adored grandfather, Frank. He is also proceeded in death by his grandfather, Jim Luetkehans, and his uncle, Ken Luetkehans.

Andrew loved well, and he is loved fiercely.

Don and Hans along with Danny and Mark went fishing in Mobile Bay, June, 2019. Don really enjoyed wading out and fishing side by side with such a fine young man in such a beautiful setting. This summer, we were hoping for the same but life had other plans. From earth’s vantage point, those plans suck. But we know he fought the good fight and rests with Jesus!!!
Please know that we hold you up in prayer and love and MORE prayer!!!!!
God Bless you, Alycia and Family!!!!

Andrew always brought laughter and joy to our home when came over to play with our son Benjamin in grammar school.
I would comment to Benjamin how polite Andrew was. Benjamin’s reply, “ Yes he is by adults, but mom he can be mischievous 🤣” I loved that about Andrew. Hugs and blessings ❤️

When Andrew was about five, Carol and Dan would bring him along to our house to visit. By then their older kids and ours were out and about, pursuing lots of activities. Even though he was stuck with us grown-ups, Andrew never fussed or whined - he was a little sweetheart. We got him an art kit with stampers so he’d at least have something to do whenever they came over, and even at that age he acted appreciative. What a gentle spirit - from the very beginning!

We knew Andrew in elementary school. He was a kid who always had a smile on his face and was polite and incredibly kind. Even at age 8, we knew Andrew would be a great athlete when he played baseball or soccer in the yard with Brendan. I remember their third grade play. Brendan was so angry that he and Andrew did not have speaking parts. Those two talked and smiled and laughed on the side of the stage during the play. The part I still remember is them rolling their eyes at each other and laughing as they passed out vegetables to the audience. We are incredibly sad. He clearly spread a lot of joy and love during his short life We are thinking and praying for you. Cris and Ed Kearney

Andrew we never met in person but you and Alycia have been in our prayers constantly for the past few years. Your mother in law would share Alycia’s blog and through that we grew to know and love you both. We will continue in prayer for Alycia. I look forward to that day in the future when we meet in Glory. Thank you for your faithful witness and love.

It was a pleasure taking care of Andrew in clinic and I always enjoyed my conversations with Alycia and Andrew. He lit up anytime Alycia was there and we loved to talk about their dogs. Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

Andrew was always special to Uncle Reed and I. He was the youngest of our nieces and nephews. As a gamer, like me, he was fiercely competitive. His nature was so kind and sincere. I was so thrilled when he met Alycia. He brought her to Milwaukee to meet us. We loved her immediately. The journey of love and faith these two young hearts have been on have been a source on inspiration an ny life and that of many others. To have shared that journey with you all, has been a gift to me. To Carol & Dan and sibs, you have surrounded AJ to the end in a tight linked circle of faith and love. He will be so missed but always so loved. ❤️ We have suffered such loss this year. Together we will learn to walk forward .
