Andy lived his life on his own terms. As a young man, he worked as a ranch hand and later on as a truck driver until he retired. Andy was not one to let life pass by. He found happiness in his hobbies which included wood working, playing music, drinking coffee, camping and the love of his life, fishing. Andy was not one to complain or speak ill of others. His happiest moments were always with his family and closest friends, sitting around the table enjoying a good meal or playing cards.
