Family-Placed Death Notice

ANDREWS, Frederick A Celebration of the Life of Frederick Eugene "Andy" Andrews will be held on Sunday, February 17, 2008 at 2:00 P.M. in the Chapel of Cagle Funeral Home, Jasper, Georgia with internment to follow at Cool Springs Baptist Church. Survivors include his wife, Betty Elise Andrews; "Mother Pearl" Hammontree; children and grandchildren, Deborah & J. Michael Gautney, Donna Lynn Andrews, Richard Eugene Gautney, William Christopher Gautney, and Steve & Kathy Boland. Andy was born in Tampa, Florida and graduated from high school early to enlist in the Navy during WWII. After the war he was fortunate to attend GA Tech on the GI Bill, become a member of Kappa Sigma, and graduate with a degree in Civil Engineering. He went to work for the Atlanta & West Point Railroad. It was in Atlanta that he met and married Elise. They had two daughters, Debbie and Donna and settled in East Point. He later worked for Georgia Power as an Industrial Development Engineer, and was instrumental in locating over 600 new industries in GA during the 1960-1980s receiving the Rip Wiley Award. He served on the Fulton County Grand Jurors for many terms. He was active in the Methodist Church, Scottish Rite and a wonderful grandfather to Richard and William Christopher. He listened, kept confidences, and gave wise advice when asked. He lived a life of quiet dignity and respect for others. When Elise's son Steve came into their lives he accepted and cared for him also. While his body was slowed by heart disease and, later strokes, he enjoyed learning about life and caring about people to his final days. He was a true Southern gentlemen and those who were fortunate to know him will never forget him. I love you Daddy....
