The attached two pictures will always have a special place in my heart taken in New Hampshire on Monday close to when I learned of Andrew’s passing. I worked with Andy since 1998 for over a decade developing and supporting the software he used to perform at the NYS Dept of Health. He was very dedicated and a tremendous pleasure to know both as a co-worker and a friend. He boasted often about the joys of refereeing and the trials and tribulations of life. I discussed much with him like a brother and will never forget his laughter even through thick and thin. I know he respected me as much as I respected him as he often called me doctor when I only have a B.S. degree. Just as puzzling as the streak of light and blue circle in the one photo, is why such a warm hearted and dedicated person did not have more time on this precious Earth. I will miss seeing Andy’s face often walking through the plaza, giving him a fist pound or hug, and knowing each other from what we both shared for so long. Andy has a place in my heart as I know he has in yours. Bless you, your family, and may Andy's spirit live on forever. I will never forget Andy, love David Sternberg.

So sorry to hear of Andy's passing. I did not know him personally but knew him from the Department of Health and also his involvement as a ref/umpire of my children's games. He always smiled and said hello as we passed on the Concourse. Prayers go out to his family.

Our deepest sympathies to Andy’s family, especially Carol Ann, his children and step children and grandchildren. I remember Andy has being a nice guy who always seemed to have a smile on his face. May God look over his family in this time of sorrow. RIP Andy.

My thought and prayers to all who knew and loved Andy. I did not know Andy well but I knew him for a long time, we were youngsters playing pick up baseball. Later I'd run into him now and then on the State Concourse in Albany or Walmart in Brunswick. Andy always greeted you with a smile and how are you doing. He was always on the go. My last memory of Andy his smile. R.I.P. Andy.
