“When I heard of Andy's death, I was literally speechless. Knowing Andy from high school, he was one of those personalities that always came across as unflappable and indestructible. Days later I still am trying to find the right words. I find some comfort in the fact that my memories are always of a man with a soft smile and a dry wit. No question he left the world a better place.
“So sad to hear of Andy's death. Just a year older at STA but still one of the South Minneapolis contingent, I enjoyed Andy's company during my time in high school and the handful of times we ran into each other over the past 30 years or so. He was a good, trustworthy guy with a heart of gold and a lot of integrity. My prayers and sympathies to his immediate and extended family.
“Dear Kathy, Rachel, Peter, Jack and Thomas,
We are thinking about all of you as you go through this hardest of times. John and I always enjoyed our times with you and Andy. I loved his sense of humor and true social commitment to all. We miss him very much already.
