I knew Andy since the 4th grade, and got to know him very well as an adult. He was quit an entrepreneur at his young age, very talented towards business, and could have gone a long ways with it. He was honest and real. He had a great heart, and will always be in mine. My friend Andy.

The last time I saw Andy was when he came to my wedding in 1973. We hung around together often prior to that time. I guess I just lost touch. I did not find out about his death till I came back to San Leandro for my Dads funeral in 1988. I was driving around the old neighbor and saw his Mom walking into her house. I stopped and knocked on the door. She invited me in and we chatted about the whole family. I noted that she had not mentioned Andy. I said, how is Andy doing? She said you don’t know he died. I was surprised with the response. She told me the whole story.  The last time I was with Andy I saw some things happening that were not good. He said he had things under control, but I guess they caught up to him. It was such a sad ending to a great life and a good friend that I would have done anything to help. I still think of him now and then. We were always having a great time when we got together. He is missed!
