Andy was my teaching assistant at SHS right before he went into the force. He was such a wonderful guy. The kids loved him. One day I got a phone message to call a Sargent from the ISP . I was a little concerned about what this was about... so I called , knees shaking ... They wanted to ask me about Andy and what I thought of him as a person and a co worker. 1st words that came to mind... "he is a knight in shining armor and would do anything to help someone..." And so he was... a wonderful wonderful public servant and is missed by many. I think of him each time I pass the mile marker... RIP Andy...
