I'm very sad to hear of Andy's passing. The comments posted in the funeral home page are testimony to Andy's life as a teacher and intrinsically good human being. He always had a smile on his face in High School, and was a caring man. Rest in peace Andy.

Yep, I can still hear that laugh of his. A terrible loss for the family and community.
