So very sad. Andy was a bright light in our office. His sense of humor and charismatic personality was infectious. I sat just outside of his office and after a few hours of quiet, we would hear him going on about something. It was always funny and upbeat. We would just laugh and say there goes Andy! He was a great man and will missed.

Every day brings another memory where Andy made me smile, made me laugh, and taught me something I didn't know. I will never forget all that laughter and all those conversations- he will remain in my heart forever. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with his children and Kristie. I can't express in words how much he will be missed, but he will be missed so very much each and every day.

Andy was always positive and willing to take the time to visit with me about our hobbies and interest outside of work. We had more in common than we realized and I enjoyed the time I was able to share with him. He will be truly missed by all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers to his family who he loved so much. His light will shine through you and be in your hearts forever. May you have peace in knowing he is at peace with our heavenly Father.
