One of four siblings: Ted (Debbie) Quigley, Julie (Mike) O'Connell and Kate (Mike) McDonagh, Andy grew up in Brooklyn in a loving family. He attended St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary School and Nazareth Regional High School where he developed friendships that have been maintained throughout the years.

His career in education began at Archbishop Molly High School in 1987. He remained there until 1999 when he joined the Ramapo Central School District at Suffern High School where he taught AP and honors classes to 9th and 10th graders. In 1983, Andy met Sharon Albergo while still a student at St. Francis College. They were married in July 1988 and began their married life in Brooklyn. Their union was blessed with two beautiful children, Sarah & Jonathan. The family moved to Rockland County in 1993 where their children have attended the Clarkstown Schools. Sarah is a sophomore at Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA and Jonathan is a graduating senior at Clarkstown H.S. South. The Quigley family life has been full of love, warmth and laughter.
