    Kathy and family Toni and I were so upset to hear of Andy’s passing. We always thought so much of Andy in so many ways and we will truly miss him.. He loved Brigantine but he did want to retire to Tennessee. Thankfully he had that opportunity.. Stay well our friend. A

    I just learned of Andy’s passing from reading The Brigantine Times this morning. I had him for 8th Grade science and he was a fantastic teacher. I remembered all of the wonderful stories he would tell which helped me pass his tests. He will be sadly missed. RIP Andy.
