I want to echo what my parents said before me: Andrew was a kind and friendly neighbor, and I was lucky enough to live next door to him during a good amount of my childhood. His warm smile and constant kindness made our street brighter. The Byrne kids will miss you, Andrew, and we all hope that your memory continues to brighten your family's life.

We were so happy when Andrew and Yun moved in next door to us. They were so kind to our kids, and genuinely interested in them. My kids loved Andrew's sense of humor. What a great dad he was to Jed, too. Lucky boy. We will miss you, Andrew, and remember you forever. May the passage of time bring you comfort and peace, Yun.

Andrew and Yun at the MSD Holiday Party, December 2004
I first met Andrew about 15 years ago as we were hired onto the IDENT contract by Lex Solutions around the same time. I would agree with others that have stated he was unmatched in his kindness, dedication, humility, and willness to go out of his way to help anyone on the program. He was very successful in everything he did. I also enjoyed the few times I was able to spend some time outside the office with Andrew and his wife as you could see the great love they shared. I was touched by Yun's dedication at the funeral saying in essence that as long as she is alive that Andrew will always be with her which is so true. His memory will live on with myself and everyone else's life he touched. My sincere condolences to his family that the Lord will grant them peace. We are all blessed to have known him and will miss him.

Andrew's Family,
Just know that when I first met Andrew back in 2006 on the US-VISIT program, I knew right away that he was one of the most special, caring, thoughtful, patient and gentle persons I could ever meet.
I pray to God that you'll find peace knowing that Andrew touched so many lives. He was a true example of a wonderful spirit. May his memories keep you and comfort you as you heal. God will provide all the strength you need to get through these difficult times.
Many blessings to you all…

My deepest condolences to Andrew's family during this time of great sorrow.

Andrew was the epitome of a perfect gentleman who treated everyone he met with utmost respect and kindness. His brilliance and commitment, coupled with his humility, never ceased to amaze me. He made us all better human beings than we were before we met him. He will be missed always.

May God give his wife, his parents, and all his loved ones the strength to bear this irrevocable loss.

I will always remember Andrew fondly as a childhood friend who was incredibly kind, and much faster than me when we played tag. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones.

My prayers and thoughts are with the family during this time. May God grant you peace. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Andrew was truly God sent, he was smart, kind, gentle, and considerate. He always demonstrated excellent integrity at work. Andrew made you want to bring your A-Game every day! He will be missed. Rest in peace Andrew and thank you for all of your assistance over the years on the US-VISIT project.

Andrew rest in peace. May God grant the family peace during this time. Andrew is one of the smartest, kindest and considerate person that I have come to know, he was a coworker who always made time for questions and was willing to share knowledge. His kind, gentle spirit will be missed. To be absent from the body is to present with the Lord.
