Above all, Andy loved the Lord and tried to follow his example by being a servant. He loved to help people, preferring to help privately and unknown without any credit. He loved his family and prayed for them and their salvation, often on his knees. Andy loved Christian music, especially Southern Gospel.
One of Andy’s hobbies was woodworking making some beautiful furniture. He loved to fish, especially with his buddy Bill Tolbert and the guys from church at the Custer cabin. Another love of Andy’s was traveling making new friends and memories.
Thanks to our immediate family and church family who have helped with Andy, sent cards, brought food and gifts, called, texted and prayed for us during the past year.
