    Great story. I didn't know him, but as one of those "self-proclaimed introverts," it makes me want to find the time to get to know people in the community a little more. RIP, Andy.

    He was a special guy - for all who have read it or might want to ... I've added the Celebration of Life chapter to the very end.

    Guys like Andy are what makes this hobby great, giving this a bump to honor his memory - R.I.P.

    Amen sir. Think about my friend almost every day. Was working on a Harlem restore today thinking about how he would have been right there with me - ugh

    such a good dude. Does anyone know how his daughter is doing?

    She's doing fantastic! I'm friends with Andy's Mom JoAnne and his Dad, Len. They spend lots of time with Andy's daughter and she is growing up fast and doing well!
    Thanks for asking about her!

    This is amazing news. He was a great dad. I got to meet his daughter once when I met him swap some parts. I sent my older boys to meet him in Knoxville to exchange some parts one time as well and they love him to death. It breaks my heart when kids lose a parent.

    just read through everything again and that picture at the end of Ida sitting on sidewalk looking at that picture got me man. Nothing like tearing up at work.

    It gets me too ... in the same way. So glad to hear your positive comments about Andy - needed that especially today.

    Also super happy to hear you’re moving into your new home! Congrats and enjoy this special time.

    I was in the apartment complex where he worked at just the other week and couldn't help but to think about him. He was a great person and willing to help anyone out. I miss his friendship and I'm glad to hear that his family is doing well.
