I remember Andy as warm, open, and easy going. He had a great smile; one that made you feel like things were going to work out alright. My condolences to Andy's family and those classmates who knew him best and called him "my friend, Andy".

Andy was a Nextdoor neighbor and a friend. I saw him or a member of his family almost everyday until the end of my Junior year. I left LA and went to school in the East. When I returned Andy had moved away. I didn't see him after that. And greatly missed his warm and welcoming smile. He became an internal medicine doctor. And I have no doubt that he was the very best at it. RIP. Andy. You will always be missed.

I remember Andy from gradeschool and scouts. He was a smart guy and pleasant to hang out with. I ran into him after a long hiatus at our 1989 reunion and he was instrumental in my move to San Diego in the early 90's.Andy and his wife Sonia were very kind to me and I'll never forget them. I was very saddened to hear of Andy's last years and his passing. My deepest condolences to his wife Sonia and his family.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Andy's passing.  I fondly remember him from our days at El Rodeo and Beverly.  He was one of the brightest and kindest persons I can recall from childhood.  My sincerest condolences to his family.  May his memory always be cherished.

I just saw this posting about Andy's passing.  It is a terribly sad notice for me to read.  Andy was my boyfriend in my Sophomore year.  I was present when he and Rusty Sheinkopf became Eagle Scouts.  I was at a quiet 16th birthday party for him because his own mother was ill at the time—so many memories of an extraordinary, thoughtful, and kind person.  I asked about him at our reunion a few years ago and was told that he was unwell.  Although I hadn't seen him in a long time, it is distressing to read of his passing.  My condolences to his family.  May his memory always be a blessing.

Andy and I were best friends at El Rodeo. We double-dated often in high school. Those dates became a well honed comedy routine. At some point, the car would mysteriously stop running. Andy and I would check under the hood and determine there was a malfunction with the grodulator and the U-tube. We never grew tired of that one. RIP old friend.

Andy was one of my first friends at El Rodeo when I came in fourth grade, he was my Patrol Leader in Troop 17, his house always a welcoming place, he the model of a good friend to a new face. I remember him in high school in The Bald Soprano, and knew later he had become a very well respected physician. We all missed him at the Scout reunion. A great person.
