To the family of Mr. Andy Pafko. My sincere condolences to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. No words can express the pain that you're feeling at this time. But just know that Prayers are being said in your behalf. May the love of friends, family carry you through this day.-Romans 15:4.
My Dad loved Andy and had been to many events with him. He gave my Dad an autographed ball and my Dad gave it to my son. I was told what a great person he was and loved by many friends and family.
My first Milwaukee Brave hero - Andy
One of my all time favorites. We need more like him in the game today. Great man and great ballplayer. Thank you for all the happiness you created through your career. Now take your place where you belong upstairs. Blessings on your memory!
I idolized you as a player and a person. Since my dad died early, you were a wonderful example for my childhood development. Thank you.
I first met Andy when I was 8 years old. We both lived by Kelvyn Park. He quickly became my hero and idol. I kept in contact with him all of my life and I will never forget what a wonderful person he was. RIP Andy
Growing up in a small central Wis town in the 40's amd early 50's Andy was a "hero" of mine so to speak. Loved hearing of his exploits vis WIND radio and Burt Wilson. I remember him being referred to as the "Boy from Boyceville."
I am now in my seventies, I remember going to Wrigley Field
and watching Andy play a Sunday double-header, always
fun. My condolences to his family and friends.
When Andy would come home to Boyceville he would always have time for questions never rushed anyone. His Milwaukee Braves uniform hangs in the high school as a symbol that a small town boy can make it. It was a pleasure to have meet him.
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
You are now playing again where the sun is always shining and there are no rainouts.
It'll always be a great Spring Training for Andy, now.
Mr. Pafko lived a long life of special mightiness from God. Psalms.90:10 and to his family my prayers are with you and may you all receive comfort from God in your time of grief.
Sorry for your loss. Please know that death is like sleep in that the dead are unconscious, but God empowered Jesus to raise several people to life.-John 5:25-29, so be encouraged at this difficult time. "Let your kingdom come."
Andy was such a sweet man. He had such a charming smile. He will be missed. Prayers to the family we will miss seeing you all.
saddened to hear of the passing of Andy Pafko. every time I see the newsreel clip of Bobby Thompsons home run I can still see Andy watching the ball go over the fence. when I first started collecting baseball cards one of the first cards I got was Andy when he played for the Milwaukee Braves. I can only imagine what a great team that is playing in heaven right now. I pray that our loving savior will bless his family during this time of sorrow. Thank you Andy for the great memories at that you will now rest in peace
When I was a teenager,I admired Andy Pafko. because he was a real gentleman ball player. I also collected baseball cards and Andy was one of them, but at a later time when moving to another area my mother accidently threw them away. Woe is me.#*@%
I was lucky enough to have some of his baseball cards from 1955-1959.
May the Pafko family be showered with God's blesssings in the days ahead.
I am very sorry for the loss of your loved one. The days ahead will be difficult, but in the days to come
the peace and happiness that we hope for will be fulfilled on an earth wide scale. All living then on will receive
life forever on a paradise earth with all needs cared for. Isaiah 65:17, 21~23
I saw Andy (#48) play several times at Wrigley. He spoke to me one time when he was in center and I was in the center field bleachers. (The bleachers were still open then) He used to kid with Peanuts Lowrey who was in left field. Those kind of guys are part of Chicago history.
My condolences on your loss. Mr Pafko was a teammate of my fathers Eddie Waitkus on the Cubs. Many years ago when i was looking to replace my fathers 1945 Cubs National league championship ring which had been stolen from me following my fathers death ,Mr Pafkp was kind enough to let me send a photographer to his house to take pictures of his ring so that i could get a copy made.My father had died when i was young and his ring from the 1945 Cubs was the only real keepsake of his i had. After it was stolen I spent 20 years trying to replace it. Thanks to the very generous act of Mr Pafko I was able to have a copy of the ring made which to this day is one of my prized possessions. Even though it is a copy it it still symbolizes to me my father. Thank you Andy Pafko. Maybe my Dad and Mr Pafko are enjoying this story in heaven at this moment.
REST IN PEACE ANDY. YOU WERE DEFFINATELY THE BEST OF THE REST. A GREAT PLAYER TO WATCH.
To Andy Pafko's Nephew, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. My father Gene and I were just talking about Andy a few days ago, they were golfing buddies. Rest in Peace Mr. Pafko, I really enjoyed the memories that I have of you.
So sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. Please know that there is much hope for our dead loved ones. Please read Ecclesiastes 9:5.
My father got your autograph on a ball you hit and he caught back in the 1950's. It sat proud on top of our china cabinet until I snuck it out and so regrettably used it as a kid who didn't have a baseball to play with. It's the only ball he ever caught and still sits there all these decades with too many scuffs on it now. My dad admired you and was so proud of getting your autograph and showing it off. I went to a couple of golf courses in Arlington heights but never found you to get another autograph. We would have loved to meet you again.
I saw Andy Pafko play at Wrigley Field with my Father when I was a very small boy.He was truly a gentleman and a credit to baseball.He was voted center fielder to the Cubs 50 year All Star Team.Rest in Peace "Handy Andy" from a fellow Badger!
