I remember Andrew well.  Skinny as hell, but I figured you have to be to do all that long distance running.  I know just running Lake Ellyn, I could feel my heart in my throat. Andrew was a smart guy.  I wasn't surprised at all he became an attorney.  I've worked much of my career with state and local taxes, but not much with real estate.  Andrew always had a smile and a great sense of humour.  And, he was a truly great person.  I thought a lot of him and figured he would live into his eighties or nineties, easily.  But, I know heart problems.  If it wasn't for an argument I had with my Wife almost 20 years ago, which I had to end due to a pain in my arm, and my Wife insisting that I get it checked out, the same thing could have happened to me, much earlier than it did Andrew.  My greatest sympathy for his family; a loss like this with no warning will take a long time to get over.

He was always such a nice kid. He was always with Don Peterson who was my Jr High boyfriend. The three of us were always togehter during that time of my life. He was really sweet, not a mean bone in his body. So sad that he passed just before retiring. Wish I could have known him in later yrs.

When I lost my wife, Mary McGrane, I was devastated. On the last night of the 2012 Olympics I heard a quote by Dr. Seuss that said, "Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened ".  It was meant at the time to say goodbye to the olympics, but I took it to represent the loss of Mary a month earlier. I began to smile more over the memories and less about the loss. We have lost so many, but we can be thankful for the wonderful memories. We will miss Andy, but I do have the memories.

   Few knew Andy as well or as long as I. We shared five or more one week vacations together over the years. Our sophmore year in collage we went to see classmate Daryl Johnson then living outside of Washington D.C. while serving in the military. Several of the others were canoeing adventures. We stayed friends from the time we were in Indian Guides until his way too early passing. I had also visited him. at both Depauw in Greencastle and Valporaso and I was also his bestman at his one and only wedding.

   We both enjoyed fine dinning and would greet one another "PALS FOREVER" at the nicests of eateries. I would refer to him as Sommelier Anda. We would find out when the check came how fine a wine we had  been consuming. Another tradition was starting the meal with a martini as we had witnesed his parents do.

  Andy was of a bit inappropreate alot of the time but thats what kept me in tears laughing, I will miss Andy and the the four of us going out together Goodby old friend.

I'm so sorry to hear about Andy's early passing. It's surprising to me that someone who took care of weight management and jogged would have a heart attack. Andy lived in the vacinity of where I lived and he was always nice and polite. I'm thinking he was a good lawyer and husband as well. I really enjoyed reading Bob Tyler's comments about him. How wonderful to have such a great friend. Andy will be missed. May God give his friends and family peace and happiness from having such a good guy in their lives. Marsha Matthews

Very saddened to hear about Andy. I hadn't seen him in many years but remember him as a guy who always had a smile on his face and an engaging personality. Suspect he was a great lawyer as well as a great husband and father. My prayers are with his family. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
