Richard "Andy" Andrade passed away on July 8, 2013 at 10:47 pm. He was born in Vallejo, California but grew up in Southern California. He was a decorated Air Force veteran of the Vietnam War, serving two tours, and was wounded while saving another's life.
Being a pilot, as well as an airplane mechanic for United Airlines, Andy love flying. He attended the Reno Air Races since the 1960's, and only missed the event while serving overseas in Vietnam. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle to his family. He cared more about others than he did for himself, and will be missed every day.
Andy is survived by his loving wife, Susan Andrade; her children, Christopher Keck and Julie Steele; his grandson, John Steele and granddaughter, Chelsea Keck; his sister, Kathy Kakuuchi; and his niece and nephews, Keiko Kakuuchi, Kaui Kakuuchi and Keoni Kakuuchi.
