He was born in Kokomo, IN on May 18th, 1962 to Jerry Marlow Covey and Joan Malone Covey. He grew up in New Castle, IN, attended Blue River Valley High School and Purdue University.

Andrew is survived by his wife of 35 years, Kelly Jo (Wilson) Covey Cape Coral, FL; daughter Elissa Lauren Covey (Ross Erickson) South Bend, IN; mother Joan Malone Covey Grove City, OH; brother Charles Covey Lewisville, IN; sister Dana (Chris Murphy) Hook Tucson, AZ; brother Brian (Chris) Covey Orient, OH; brother Erin (Peggy) Covey Frisco, TX; mother-in-law JoEllen Rogers Muncie, IN; sisters-in-law Krista (Paul) Grove Albany, IN and Kathy (Mark Collett) Garringer Cape Coral, FL; step mother-in-law Rebecca Wilson Muncie, IN; step sisters-in-law Tammy (Paul) Hadley Lawrence, IN and Barbara (Roger) King Parker City, IN; along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by father Jerry Marlow Covey; father-in-law Philip Charles Wilson; step brother-in-law Patrick Murphy; step sister-in-law Colleen Murphy.

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.

    Andrew, I should have reached out after job in Michigan blew up and I am sorry that I did not because now I cannot. You were the best mentor that I ever had, and I owe you for the success that I have had in this business for the past 26 years. Keep the car bar open until I get there so I can hear the infectious laugh again

    I have no words! Even though we weren't in the same class at BRV, we were in shows and speech club together. Scott was such a vibrant person. I've thought of him several times through the years and the memory of him always brings a smile to my face. I will be keeping his family in my prayers.

    This is such sad news! I graduated from Blue River Valley in 1982. My favorite memory of him was watching him compete at speech contests. I especially loved to listen to him compete in the Impromptu categories.

    My deepest sympathies to all of his family during this time of loss. May you find joy in your memories.

    I went to high school with Scott at Blue River Valley, graduating a year ahead of him. We were in Speech Club and Drama Club together with a great group of kids. We had so much fun together putting on plays and participating in speech meets. We all enjoyed Scott’s sense of humor and energetic personality. I am very sad for your loss and I am praying for all who loved him.

    Dad, I love you so much. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be your daughter. I never went a day without knowing or feeling your unwavering love for me. It was the most steady and constant feeling of my life. I will miss you daily and in random moments; when I cook, when I hear a certain song, when I’m at the beach or lake. I credit you for my sense of humor, my timing for a joke (maybe inappropriate), and my easy going nature. Thank you for your teachable moments, your fun times, and your immense love. ❤️ I love you so much

    You will truly be missed. There is so much you taught me when I was at Scott's. Things that have carried on with me after that great run. I am truly thankful and blessed to have known you. See again. Andrew Conkey
