I met Andy around 1964 when I was 10 or 11. I ended up going to his camp near Medicine Bow Wyoming the year it opened. He was a very nice man who cared a lot about all the kids at the camp. Lot's of good memories! RIP!

I was a kid during the 1950's in Brooklyn,NY as a Yankee (not a Dodger) fan. I often took the subway to the Bronx to attend Yankee games. My favorite Yankee was Andy Carey. I was saddened to find out that he had passed away at the end of last year. I was heartened to learn that he lived a full life and has such a loving family. Sorry we never met Andy. (I live just down the 5 in Laguna Niguel.) Maybe we will finally meet in that Field of Dreams in the sky

My (then) husband and I became friends with Andy through his sister, Sandi and her (then) husband in Alameda. It was a friendship that formed instantly, as Andy was an avid hunter and so was Denny. He was also an avid golfer, and enjoyed playing with Denny and receiving some "lessons" at the same time. He spent time at our home, and was always delightfully entertaining with stories about hunting trips taken with Billy Martin and Mickey Mantle.

He had a wicked sense of humor, and was quite the practical joker...had a "For Sale" sign put in our front yard while we were away. We helped surprise him at a party for his 50th b'day, and he rewarded us by placing an artificial talking parrot in the tree outside our bedroom window...no sleep that night!

He once took a replica poster of the Yankee pinstripes to an old-timers game, had it signed by the likes of Reggie Jackson and other hall-of-famers and presented it to our son, who at the time was a 12-year old Yankee fan. Now, my grandson, who's first little league team was the Yankees, has the poster.

We fell out of touch when all of our lives took different directions, but he will always remain in our hearts as first, a good friend, and second, a great ball player. RIP, Andy...my sincere condolences to Sandi and the rest of your family. I'm sure they miss you.
