I was a prof in the Biology Department at ASU from 1971-2008. During that time, I came to know Andy Dove, when, I believe, he made deliveries to the department. He and I visited a bit and joked even more. I remember him as a warm and friendly guy, one who it was easy to visit with and get to know. I'm sorry I didn't know him better, but my memories of him are all good ones. My wife, Laura, also knew of Andy, as she was a member of the ASU Women's Club, which met a time or two at the Dove's home. Of course, she knew Esther much better, but I enjoyed learning about the Dove family through Laura and Esther. Again, I'm glad to got to know Andy, and my condolences go to all his family; he'll be missed by everyone.

I am the youngest daughter of Denise La Bomme-Stelly. Uncle Andy was such a joy to be around. I enjoyed his stories and little jokes. He was truly the light in the room. Living thousands of miles away made visits very infrequent but when they happened he was always in the mood to goof off with me ( like his silly face in this photo). I love you Mr. Dove, thank you for giving the world YOU, and making my Aunt Esther happy for over 60+ years!
