Andy adapted to numerous changes throughout the industry during his over thirty years serving the print community in Arizona and the southwest, and always considered the well-being of Central Bindery’s employees one of his most important callings in life.

Delph Family,
Very sorry to read of Andy's passing. I have fond memories of playing football with Andy & Susie in your front yard on Solano Dr. when we were young. Andy always had a great personality. He was a very unique and special person! Great family!

I met Andy in the mid-90's when he took me on a tour of his bindery business and facility. He was a very gracious man who shared his passion for his profession and his staff equally. Men of Andy's character make a huge difference by their demeanor and devotion - he will be greatly missed. Our condolences to the Delph family.

I first met Andy at the Desert Foothills YMCA many years ago. Whenever I walked into the weight room, Andy would always greet me with a smile and a warm greeting. He was always fun to talk to and I looked forward to seeing him every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at the 'Y'.
I was shocked to find out about his illness and unexpected passing. I will surely miss him, as I considered him a real gentleman and friend.
Helene and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to Andy's family. He was one of the good people we have come to know and love.
