Condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Granatelli. Please take comfort from the words found at 1 Corinthinas 15:26.
I ment 50 years ago.
It's hard admitting I'm that old, even to myself.
About 40 years ago I was good friends with Vince and racing Studebaker with help from Andy. At Bonneville late night 1am Andy and Dolly roll into town and find me sleeping in my truck (couldn't afford a room) In the morning they came back and took me to breakfast. They then left town, however he first gave me their room payed up for the week. There's more.
All my best and condolences to Dolly and Vince
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Granatelli when I worked for Tune Up Masters in '82 twice , I learned a lot while at Tune Up Masters , and would like to thank him and his managers for the knowlege I had taken with me when I left , as the years passed by , I felt like I should have paid them instead of them paying me , but even though there were frustrating times , I actually had a lot of fun , and I want to thank you guys , ( you know who you are ) I had forgotten about Andy over the years , until I bought my Hemmings " Muscle Machines " off the news stand , and saw his obituary , what scares me , is the fact that he was as old as I am now when I met him , but at this time my condolences go out to the Granatelli family and I praythat God will bring peace and comfort to them at this time , And I can say that I actually look forward to the time I go to Heaven , I know it is a beautiful place , and it will never be boring with the likes of John Z. DeLorean , Zora Arkus Duntov , Carroll Shelby , Ed " Big Daddy " Roth , Boyd Coddington , Andy Granatelli nd many others , growing up as a kid , I had seen and read about him in the pages of HOT ROD MAGAZINE , and I had those STP stickers on my bicycle and my skateboard , he was definetely one of the more inovative people in the automotive world , and he will be missed , and this is what I love about God , he created individuals , he created people on purpose for HIS purpose , there is NOT one person alike on this earth from one another , and there is no other Andy Granatelli , RIP Andy !
HAPPY ARE THOSE WHO MOURN,SINCE THEY WILL BE COMFORTED...MATT.5:4,MAY GOD BE YOUR CONSOLATION,AND COMFORTER,AT THIS TIME...................C

With My Deepest Sympathy,
I had the good fortune to serve as Andy's labor lawyer for fifteen years. He was not only the most fun client I ever had but became a dear friend. So many memories--Dolly, Jackie and I both send our regards.
I would ask Andy every time I was going to Chicago, what restaurant he would recommend... The food was always great.
may the God of comfort be with you and yours revelations chapter 21 vs 3&4

Shocked and saddened to hear about the loss of a great ambassador to auto racing, Andy Granatelli. I went to the Indianapolis 500 museum and saw the famous picture of Andy kissing Mario Andretti on the cheek after he won the 500 in 1969, that will always stand out in my memory. Andy was such a great innovator and his STP oil is widely used. May the family of Andy be blessed by the love our dear savior comfort them at this time of great sadness. Rest in Peace Andy and thank you for the great contributions you gave to auto racing. You will never be forgotten.
He was class act. My Condolences to the Family.
We'll miss you !
Andy Granatelli was one of my first heroes of American auto racing and always will be. I read "They Call Me Mr. 500" when it was released in 1969 and was hooked. His legacy in American auto racing will never cease -- what a great man! I am adding to the gallery some treasured photos of Andy and his cars at the 1969 Indy Car race at Hanford, CA, which Mario won in the same Brawner Hawk he would win the Indy 500 in a little over a month later. Way to go Andy!
Sorry for the loss of your love one, May the God of comfort help you endure through this stressful time. Proverbs 18:10
What a wonderful icon in racing. RIP Mr500.
Remember Andy from his Indy 500 days. He brought excitement and innovation to Indy. I was just a kid but followed Andy and his cars and drivers with great enthusiasm. Sympathies to all in the Granatelli family. A large person in racing history is lost. Sincerely. Chuck Thompson
