I met Andy back in 1987 when I started working for Xerox. I was promoted to a position where I'd be working directly with him and Joel Hackett. He was quite the character. When he left Xerox to own a copier franchise, we all used to meet for drinks occasionally. I am so sorry for the loss of such a great guy. I offer my condolences, positive energy to his family who will miss him terribly. Please keep your memories intact, celebrate him and keep him in your hearts! 😘

I met my cousin Andy when I was six years old.. I thought he was the most handsome guy I had ever seen, and so did most of the girls he knew. However, he only had eyes for a beautiful Greek girl, Maria Angelis, who was also my babysitter...Lucky me. After they were married and moved to California it was only on special occasions that we would get together. He was always so kind and jovial and of course still the most handsome man I knew. What I did not realize is what a wonderful God Loving Man he was. He was a wonderful father and even a better Papou to his beloved granddaughters.
He was and is loved by every person that entered his life, which was abundantly clear by the hundreds of friends that attended his funeral. Cousin Andy I have no doubt, Your Memory Will Be Eternal! Enjoy all the the rest of the family up there with you!! We will miss you!

Andy,

My heart is a little empty with you gone. Although we haven't spent a lot of time together the past few years, I will always cherish our relationship. Our games together at Tijeras Creek. The Greek fest. The tournament at Coto for the church. The lousy food at Tijeras Creek grill. Andy once described the omelet to the chef as tasteless and tougher than the sole of his golf shoe. Your magical handling of the bets after a round. But most of all that $1,000,000 smile and sense of humor. I will catch up with you one of these days, Propsy. Until then, rest in peace. My love goes out to all of the Props family. No one loved you all more than Andy!

Dear Maria, Mike and Nicole-

Andy has and will always have a special place in our hearts. He was first class, and regardless of who he came in contact with, he made that person feel important. When Andy passed the baton for us to chair the St. Paul's Golf Classic, that was a tough act to follow, but actually the table had already been set. Through his introductions to the golf course staff, and his attention to detail, everything just fell into place. Aside from the golf stuff, Andy was a gentleman. He had a kind and giving heart, and yes, he was a character. We were blessed to have him in our lives. His legacy is you, his family. Andy did good. His memory will be eternal.

Dearest Maria, Michael & Nicole....I am so very sorry Andy passed! My sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to you & all your family & friends! He will be sooooo missed by all who knew him. I remember when I first met Andy, back in June 1967 when Sharon & George were married & I was a 13 yr old bridesmaid & the first to walk down the aisle at St Sophia's Greek Orthodox Church in Los Angeles. I was so nervous & didnt want to mess up, trip, etc., being the youngest & first one down that long (& seemed like a never ending) aisle. But Andy gave me courage & said, "you can do it young lady" & thankfully, I did, carrying a bouquet of long stemmed yellow roses. To this day, 52 years later, I have never forgotten that! My heart breaks for you all (Maria, Michael, Nicole, Chrissy, Tera, George, Pete, Pat & Steven) and the entire Props & Economos family & the entire family & all of your dear friends! I know you are all celebrating Andy today in the same way we all celebrated Sharon 12 years ago next month! May Andy rest in peace with all who have passed before him & his memory be eternal & forever live in everyone's heart!
Love & miss you all!

Dearest Maria, Mike and Nicole,

No words can even begin to express the sadness we feel for you and for all your family at the loss of your beloved husband and father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. Andy was a wonderful man, the picture of strength, good health and courage. He was fun loving, friendly and kind to all. We will miss seeing him at our church and, for Nick, at the bicycle club as well. He leaves behind the precious legacy of his very beautiful family. We will always remember him with love. May his memory be eternal.

With our heartfelt sympathy,
Nick and Kiki Davis and family

What a loss, for all who knew and loved Andy so well and for those of us who missed really knowing him. Though cousins, we were separated by years and miles. He was always ‘larger than life’ to me and I remember standing once on his shoes dancing with him as a little girl. His smile lit up the room. May his memory be eternal. My love to all of you.

I met Andy when I joined Xerox 32 years ago. He taught me a great deal but most of all he shared his love of golf with me. He was a great teacher and I love the game to this day. I will miss his infectious smile. I feel blessed to have known him and his wonderful family. God Bless, Rebecca & Michael Jarry
