    Deb, Chris, and Amanda: I am so sorry for the loss of our Andy. He and I did a lot of things together over the years such as golf, snow ski, boating, and he went on plenty of police ride alongs with me! He always made me laugh with his funny facial expressions and quirky sayings. To: Andy, Thanks again my brother for the years of laughter and the last birthday wish that early morning of my birthday on August 2, 2017. Looking back I wished you would have asked what I wanted for my birthday bro, because If you would have, I would have said for you to be better! I will always and forever remember that morning. You will always be in my heart and missed dearly my brother. Love you always “Muscles.”

    Andy was a person that always made me feel welcomed and that he enjoyed my company. When I was a kid visiting family in Florida he would always take me around like I was his little brother.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, father, son, uncle, brother, my brother in law and friend! His witty humor, smile and companionship will be missed sorely! I had the pleasure of meeting Andy and calling him my brother in law within the past 10 years. During this time I learned of his wonderful funny personality that had the ability to keep everyone laughing. I will fondly continue to remember him and the pleasure he gave to others. I can only imagine the look on his face as he meets his Lord and Savior. No more pain. No more sorrow. May the celebration happening in Heaven spill over to everyone present today knowing he is at the ultimate party! To be absent from the body, present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8.
