Andy was my high school hero. I'll always remember his wrestling matches against Mount Union's John Helton and his District6 successes at Jaffa Mosque. Always made me proud. Rest In Peace.

I have just learned of the death of Andy. I have always had the highest regard for him. He was the epitome of a gentleman and always treated everyone with the upmost respect. I know this is an enormous loss, but you may be comforted by the knowledge that he left the world better than he found it. My sincere condolences to your family

I'm so sorry for your loss. Remember when we were away at school and you'd write to me about Andy? We know that when we're absent from the body, we're preset with the Lord. I hope that thought brings you peace. God Bless You .
