I had the great pleasure of working with Andy in Philadelphia. He was an amazing boss - always kind, gentle, considerate and a smile on his face. I found him online a few years ago online and took the opportunity to thank him for his kindness. I remember when he left, I cried because he was truly going to be missed. Even though the time we worked together was short, I always remember him as one of the greatest boss I ever had. Rest in peace, Andy. My condolences to his daughters, Lauren and Alexis, his family and friends. He was one of the good ones. Until we all meet again, rest easy.

I have had the privilege of knowing Andy for over 6 years. He was a gentle soul and was always there with a smiling face. He was a great friend to my husband when he needed a friend. I believe you and Bob will continue your long conversations in a better place now. RIP my dear friend, I will miss you.

If it is true that it is not the years in your life that count but the life in your years, then Andy lived to be 120. Andy was such a vibrant person whose presence enriched all who knew him. Whether it was playing tennis, golf, going out to dinner or just sitting and talking, I enjoyed being in his presence and sharing his friendship, good humor and intelligence. My heart goes out particularly to his daughters and grandchildren who have been prematurely robbed of his love and inclusion in their lives. May his memory be a blessing to all who knew and loved him. God bless you, Andy.

My wife and I had the distinct privilege of getting to know Andy over the past three years when we lived in DC and during our time visiting family in Florida. Andy is a true gentlemen and I will really miss his kind heart. Rest easy, friend.

Nick and Randi Larson.

Marcia and I were so fortunate to have a next door neighbor like Andy. He made living at 550 so special. A great friend who loved life and had so many friends who loved him. To say he will be missed is a gross understatement. In fact, there are no words to adequately define the loss of such a person like Andy! RIP my friend!

While we'd known Andy for about fifteen years, we can't remember a time when he didn't have a smile on his face. He and his smile will be greatly missed.
