Andrew Williams Stokes Obituary
Aug. 27, 1941 - Aug. 6, 2018Andy passed away at home in Altadena at age 76 from stomach cancer. He was born in West Virginia to Samuel and Lucille Stokes, and grew up with his brother Stephen on a farm in Plainview, Texas. Andy was honored to be valedictorian of his high school class. Upon entering college at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he immediately bonded with his fraternity brothers of Theta Delta Chi, many of whom he maintained close friendships with throughout his life. He graduated from MIT in 1963 with a Bachelors of Science in mechanical engineering. During his career, he truly enjoyed working with his coworkers at JPL and Xerox. He was a consummate outdoor enthusiast who sought any opportunity to bike, hike, golf, backpack and sail. In 1989 Andy married Sally, who survives him, and they enjoyed 29 years of camping, traveling and entertaining. During his retirement, he mastered the art of woodworking and with painstaking detail, applied his beautiful artistry to his home in many creative ways. His friends and family will truly miss our adventure man. In addition to Sally, Andy is survived by Christian, her husband Ryan, and their children Harlan, Madeline and Lilly, all of whom he loved very much.
