My heart goes out to Andy's family. I will miss him deeply. Andy was my first manager at Broadway (The University Department) when I started to work as a teenager. Andy was a true gentleman & class-act. Even after all these years when I was at Macy's and would run into him - he would take time and talk to me. We really lost a very special person.

I was a fellow classmate of Andy's at Santa Clara High School. He was always, kind, smiling, sincere, and full of school spirit. What a wonderful and fulfilling life he led; and he represented his country to the fullest. Rest in the Peace of God's Eternal Love, Andy.

I first met Andy in 1985 when I first started working at The Broadway. I would see him going in and out of the swinging doors of the visual department that were right outside the gift wrap department where I worked. You will be missed! My condolences to the Anguiano Family. Rest in Peace.

Dear Anguianos,
Gosh, we are so sad because of Andy's passing. We have had the privilege to attend some Anguiano Family gatherings and we always enjoyed talking with Andy -- such a down-to-earth and nice guy. We were blessed to know him. Mr. and Mrs. A, you raised a wonderful family.

We would have been there today if we could have; sure do miss good people like you all. God bless you and we know Andy is happy in heaven.
Love, Annie and Joe Greeley

I was in shock when I read the papers and learned the loss of such a wonderful person. I met Andy about 18 years ago at LA Workout in Ventura. The gym is no longer in existence now but I remember we would faithfully show up for the 5:30 step classes and claim our floor spots. He often talked about going to nieces, nephews birthday parties or a family event. I am thankful that I met such a kind-hearted person. I will miss you.... and keep on Steppin that Step!

I will always remember and love you my dearest Andy. I will miss your Sunday visits, Our Christmas tree will never be as beautiful as when you put on the lights for us. Who will help me decorate for our parties? Who will listen to my problems? I will miss your wonderful smile. I pray often that Our Lady will place her arms around you .
