Andrew was born on June 19, 1932 and passed away on Thursday, September 13, 2018.

Andrew was a resident of Huntsville, Alabama at the time of passing.

He graduated at a young age from Smyrna High School and enrolled at Georgia Tech, where he studied engineering for about two years.

His education was interrupted by his enlistment in the U.S. Air Force, where he served from 1950-1953, mostly working as a radio-officer on military flights involved in the rapid construction and development of Thule Air Base in the north of Greenland - a place he said is only memorable because it was half-way between Washington and Moscow at a time when the Cold War started to brew.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Redstone Model Railroad Club, P.O. Box 8206, Huntsville, AL 35808.
