Andrew was a 2009 graduate of Eastern High School and attended Jefferson Community College. Most recently he worked at the Dollar General Store and was truly happy at his job. He never knew a stranger and was kind and open-hearted with everyone he met. He had many pets during his life, and especially loved his calico cat, Cali.
Andrew loved boating and fishing with his friends, but especially enjoyed those special times with his father and grandfather at Trailwood Lake. Known as "Spanky" to his friends, Andrew loved to cook, entertain and host parties. His friends meant the world to him. He had plans to travel and wanted to be a bartender or go to barber school. His dreams changed frequently, but he never stopped dreaming.
Andrew is preceded in death by his father, John F. Clark; and his grandmother, Anita Ries.
He is survived by his mother and step-father, Kim (Venhoff) and John S. Ries; grandparents, Joe and Pat Venhoff and Ed Ries; aunts and uncles, Jeff (Pam) and Chris (Carla) Venhoff, Eddie Ries, Janice (Jay) Scoggan, Anne Ries, Carol (Donnie) Kennedy, David, Gary (Dottie), Alan (Mona), Jennie, and Danny (Kim) Clark, Carolyn (Bob) Cochran, Marilyn (Mike) Epley and Angela (Bill) Robinson. He is also survived by many great aunts and uncles and cousins.
Andrew's legacy is reflected in the lives that he touched daily. He will be greatly missed by his parents, grandparents, coworkers, family and friends.
A Memorial service to celebrate Andrew's life will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at Pearson Ratterman Funeral Home, 12900 Shelbyville Road. Visitation will be from 2 p.m. until service time. Interment will be private at a later date in Calvary Cemetery.
Memorial gifts in the form of contributions may be made to the Shamrock Foundation.
