Andrew Ray Harwood was my brother; and a damn fine one at that.
He was the first born of three children by our mother Leona and Fred
Harwood. They had three great kids to add to our growing family
after WWII. Andy was a good fun loving guy all his life. A combat
veteran of Vietnam. USMC Sgt. Like many vets of the era he brought
home many scars; he handled them the best he could. Andy left behind
two children, Lisa and Matthew.

The rest of us; Paul, Chuck, Susan and Laura will miss him greatly.
Andrew was preceded in death by his parents Fred and Leona, and
sister Barbara.

May GOD bless and keep you dear brother.
