Andrew always had a smile on his face and making others laugh came natural to him. Andrew's family and friends found him to be loyal and always put others' needs before his own. From preparing "to-do" lists to vacation planning, Andrew was the organizer of the family.
Andrew was very well traveled. His favorite destinations included; Walt Disney World, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Smoky Mountains, and cruising. He was quick-witted and his face would light up during conversations covering myriad topics including music, sports, history and more. Andrew was steadfast, brave, and an inspiration to others until his last breath.
