Andy was a close and very appreciated friend. We used to enjoy hunting deer and elk together. In fact, the first time I took him elk hunting, he killed a huge spike elk right in camp! He used to love cutting wieners into all our hunting meals and used to call his stash of tortillas “Sodias”. He was quite the handy man and used to build all kinds of contraptions from scraps! I was very blessed to enjoy all the years of our companionship. I know he’s in a much better place with our Lord watching over him!

We first met our neighbor Andy when he pulled up in his white jeep and introduced himself. Andy and Mary were great neighbors, and we all became good friends. Andy made us two small benches which we cherish. Andy had some common experiences with us including basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and working for a short time at the Pueblo Army Depot. Andy would tackle anything except electronics and computers. His hand built house is proof of his work. Andy and Mary had many friends and family to share good memories. We miss both of them. We wish Diana, Rick and family and various relatives to remember those good memories to get us through the upcoming years. Peace be with you all.

Uncle Andy was a gentle soul! He had a quiet demeanor about him . He & Auntie Mary we’re our best man & maid of honor at our wedding 47 years ago. He would come to Amalia to visit my dad Abenicio & they both knew carpentry so well that they would sit & talk for hours. We still have some work benches that he made years ago. RIP Uncle Andy. ❤️🙏🏼❤️

I remember Great Uncle Andy as a quite guy with a smile and a gentle energy. He was my Mother’s uncle who also happened to be friends with my Dad’s Father Ben Vigil. Who he had met while working at the CF&I.

I would always tag along with my Grandpa Ben when he visited Andy and always enjoyed seeing him as he reminded me of my late Mother Elizabeth and made me feel more connected to her.

I’ll never forget our family camping along side him and My Great Aunt Mary in their adorable tiny blue camper.

Uncle, every Sunday when I was a little girl we would go visit you and see the progress you made on the house. I remember every rock in that fireplace. We shared many buckets of chicken with Grandma Annie on that little table. I will miss getting to visit you on my trips to Pueblo, talking about the family and sharing garden notes.

I love you Uncle, may you rest in peace ❤🇺🇲
Sherry, Xo
