Andrew Samuel Green Obituary
May 15, 1958 - November 5, 2016 Andrew Samuel Green, 58, of El Cerrito, CA, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family and loved ones following a courageous, five-year battle with colon cancer. Born in Washington, D.C. to Morton Harold and Rose Alice (Rubin) Green, Andy was raised in Scarsdale, NY where he attended Scarsdale High School (Class of '76). After studying engineering at Lehigh University, he practiced energy engineering in the Bay Area. Andy will be remembered by those who held him dear for his enduring warmth, kindness, and wicked sense of humor that would brighten even the darkest day. He grew up spending summers on Cape Cod where he developed his love of sailing and beach days. In more recent years, he took up motorcycling and enjoyed weeks-long excursions on his bike through the coasts of Croatia, Australia and New Zealand. Vacationing this summer in Italy with his wife, Dale, his appetite for fun and adventure lasted with him to the very end, and he never allowed his health get in the way of relishing life. Andy is survived by his brave and loving wife, Dale Susan Green, son, Teyo Green, brother, Jeffrey and sister-in-law Beth Green, and their daughters, Emily and Sophie. A small family service will be held in his remembrance on November 14, 2016. In his illness, Andy remained optimistic that breakthroughs in medicine would lead to his cure; thus, in lieu of flowers, donations to continue his legacy may be made to FasterCures.org, a nonprofit seeking to improve the medical research system and expedite cures for diseases to save lives, or the (Cancer.org).
