    Andy was a quiet, sweet friend in high school. I’ll always remember his smirky smile, the way he would give me a hard time in class, & his musical talent! He will be missed…gone way too soon.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I went to school with him in Gladstone. I remember when he learned to play electric guitar and played Mary Had A Little Lamb in front of the class-I believe in 5th grade? RIP Andy
