Andrew Matthew Bahl was born April 1, 1945, and celebrated an adoptive birthday on July 15, 1945, in Los Angeles, Calif., to Richard Cecil and Marie Cecile Balanger Bahl. Following high school, Andy enlisted in the U.S. Navy serving from 1964-1968. When returning home, a childhood friendship with Sue Wallen was rekindled. Their parents were best friends and they grew up together. A loving relationship was formed and they married on Feb. 10, 1968, in Anaheim, Calif. Andy and Sue moved to Fort Worth for a job opportunity. They were longtime members of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, where he was a Eucharistic minister, lector, and facilitator of the New Day Grief ministry. Andy was also a very active member of the Knights of Columbus. He served in many senior positions, including Grand Knight of Council #759, Faithful Navigator of San Juan Diego Assembly #2857, and district deputy of District 13. He also served in the 4th Degree Color Corps and Honor Guards. Andy and his family were selected as Council Family of the Year in 1998. His ministry was leading the rosary and vigil services for many Knights and members of his parish. Andy was a genuine and warm-hearted man who always lived larger than life. He leaves behind a legacy on the importance of living a life based on principles and convictions. He especially had a passion for the unborn child's Right to Life. He was preceded in death by his sons, infant Michael Patrick Bahl and Capt. Christopher Andrew Bahl, U.S. Air Force; his father, Richard Cecil Bahl; mother, Cecile Callantine; and his favorite beloved horse Secretariat.
