Andrew was a remarkable salesman who loved to educate and pass on his knowledge to those that he mentored throughout his careers of Tri-Star sales with Interstate Engineering Corporation and in the turf and lawn care industry of which he was a business partner of numerous Scott’s Lawn Care franchises.
His greatest passion was cooking for large gatherings and at home for his family. He loved deep sea fishing, spending time on his boat, golfing, country music, and anything Purdue. Andrew was always positive and made those around him happy with his infectious smile, jokes, and laughter.
He was also a proud member of Purdue University’s Tarkington Halls “Wild Bunch” group and looked forward to their annual summer reunions.
He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
A memorial service will be held at the Covey Family Cabin and Cemetery in Glen Daniel, WV in the future.
