Andrew graduated from Olympia High School in 1999. He had worked for Nutrien Ag Solutions, in Atlanta, for over 15 years. He loved to tinker with anything that had an engine and could rebuild anything.

With a contagious laugh and a smile that would light up a room, Andrew never knew a stranger. He loved a good joke and was an old soul, enjoying Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. He was very proud of his children, nick- naming Kenny “Scooter” and Lydia “His sweet little sugar,” and the love of his life was his wife, Jenna.
