  1. Always enjoyed talking to Andy on my way out of work each day. And I don’t think I’ve ever met a bigger Indians fan. Rest in Peace Andy. You’ll be missed.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Andy’s passing, I enjoyed our chats when he would check on me after hours in my office with his huge smile wanting to make sure I was ok and wanting to make sure its safe for me to get to my car in the dark. He clearly was very kind and with a big heart – you will be missed Andy, may you rest in peace.

  3. I truly enjoyed the many early morning conversations I shared with Andy on everything from sports to recent discussions about our Slovenian heritage during his security rounds at Athersys. Deeply saddened to hear of his passing. Rest in Peace, my friend. Your warm smile and friendly, outgoing personality will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you.

  4. Andy, may you rest in peace. I enjoyed our conversations, and shared passion for the Indians. Your kindness and concern for others will truly be missed. The world was a better place for having you in it.

  5. Truly a genuinely great guy. Went to St. Christine’s with Andy and lifted weights with him at Miller’s Gym on E.185th St…my sincerest condolences to the family…may God give y’all grace at this time and into the future.
    God Bless,
