Andrew M. Cervini, 94, passed away peacefully on May 17, 2013 while under hospice care in his home in Toms River, New Jersey. Andrew treasured his family and is survived by his wife of 71 years, Mary Elizabeth Bachmann Cervini, 92, their children, Patricia Vivian (Ginger Rebstock), Michael Cervini (Susan Brown Cervini), and Elizabeth Manvell (Arthur Elfenbein), grandchildren Elizabeth Vivian, Benjamin Manvell, Matthew Vivian, Justin Cervini, Jessica Manvell, and Scott Cervini and two great granddaughters, Molly Vivian Ford and Marian Rose Davis. Andrew, one of five children, is survived by his brother Paul Cervini.

Andrew grew up in Harlem NYC and married Mary in 1942. He served with the US Navy during WWII and Mary joined him on the West Coast until his discharge. They returned to NYC and in 1955 moved their family from the Bronx to Freeport, Long Island. For over forty years Andrew worked as a lathe operator for various manufacturers in the area. In 1984 they retired to Toms River to be near family. Andrew loved history and was an avid reader and story teller right up to his passing. He was drawn to the ocean and, while able, enjoyed walking the Seaside Heights boardwalk.

In consideration of his love of the Jersey Shore and the damage caused by Superstorm Sandy, memorial contributions may be made to the Seaside Heights Robin Hood Relief Fund. https://www.robinhood.org/sandyfund Andrew was interred at the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery, in Arneytown, NJ under the direction of Anderson and Campbell Funeral Home in Toms River.

Wow, where do I begin. What a blessing to have known and shared my whole life with Uncle Andy. We've had so many conversations over the years. Words of wisdom, his story telling of his youth and life experiences, too. Who can forget his laugh and great moves on the dance floor. Oh yes, dancing at parties, weddings, family events. Always talk so kindly about Mom & Dad and the great Bachmann kids. A lovely man, my uncle, my dear uncle Andy. May he rest in peace.

Sorry to hear my dear cousin has passed. I talked to mary when he came out of the hospital and was home with hospice. I have not heard from any family until I got this e-mail. Thank you Liz for letting me know. He has gone to a better place.
Love to all of you

Uncle Andy championed the corporal works of mercy. St Peter will have a gold medal for him at the pearly gates. Uncle Andy may tell him to give it to someone else. A real hero!
