Andy was a man who loved the outdoors, enjoyed motorcycles, hunting, fishing and camping with his friends and loved ones. We carry fond memories of our family's trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota this last summer. Spending time with Papa Andy will never be forgotten. The brightest "stars" in Andy's life were his beloved wife, Sue, his stepchildren, and his grandchildren. Andy LOVED participating in Cub Scouts with Damian and watching him play football. He also LOVED spending time reading to Kolby and watching SpongeBob with him.
Andy was surrounded by people who loved him.
