Andrew West Kittell
Nov 11, 1970 - Jan 6, 2021.
Andrew West Kittell, of Coronado, CA, died January 6, 2021. Andrew was born in Greenwich, CT on November 11, 1970. Andrew was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
Andrew was kind, gentle and beloved for his good nature and generous spirit by all who knew him personally. He was quick to laugh and had an infectious sparkle in his eye, a genuine joie de vivre. He was always active, seeking adventure on ski slopes or surf breaks, training his large dogs to tow him at high speeds on his RipStik, road tripping to national parks, playing ice hockey, bouncing his ubiquitous racquetballs off of any available flat surface, or simply engaging in a spirited game of Hearts with his family. Andrew was mathematically inclined and always enjoyed solving challenging puzzles and playing games of all types.
He was extremely close with his wife and children, selflessly supporting the passions of each and drawing his own joy from theirs. They were everything to him. He loved each immensely and lived each moment for their benefit.
He graduated from St. George's School, Claremont McKenna College and Columbia Business School, where he met his wife, Luan. After Business School, Andrew joined Bear Stearns in New York, where he rose to Senior Managing Director, before continuing on at J.P. Morgan Chase in New York and Houston. He and his family have lived in New York, NY, Darien, CT, Houston, TX, and Coronado, CA.
He is survived by his loving family; his wife, Luan Troxel and their sons Hugo and Ares; his father, Donald and wife, Betsy Swanhaus; his brother, Robert, sister-in-law, Courtnay, niece, Cameron, and nephew, Harrison; his sister-in-law, Dyann Rupp, and husband, Mark; his niece Ink Rorshach, and countless close friends around the world. He was predeceased by his mother, Mary, his brother, Reid, and his nephew, Ryan.
Andrew's greatest joy in life was spending time with Luan, Hugo, Ares and his giant dog, Sully.
Andrew was loved deeply and will be sorely missed.
A private memorial will be scheduled when Covid-19 allows in Greenwich, CT.

Andrew and I (along with Sully) took tennis classes together and we played as a partners team with several other tennis players in Coronado. He was quite a good player and he was really fast. It was difficult to get anything by him. We had a bit of special rapport because my daughter is a tax account for Calpine , an energy Company based in Houston with offices in San Diego.
I was saddened to learn of Andrew's passing from a fellow tennis player. Andrew may be gone but not forgotten.
