Andy flew his final glide last Wednesday night. You will be missed EA!

Whenever we have more information, we will pass information about his memorial service.

Sorry to hear this.....I knew him from contests in NY and VA in the USofA. Yes, I remember (decades ago) HHSC juniors (with some prodding from my generation) him getting his trailer wrapped in plastic, then many rolls of duct tape in Elmira....
Best to his family and friends.....

I can't begin to count the number of times Andy made me laugh over the years.
I will miss his calls with the latest funny story or joke.
He was a fierce competitor and a good mentor to many.
We will miss him.

Miss you Andy!
Remember the time after your incident at Mifflin,
you encountered the rescue crew, and they asked for your
name, the asked for your phone number - you said 911.
Sadly had a similar circumstance and repeated the line,
to the confusion/annoyance/laughter of the hospital staff.
We had a lot of fun together!

I flew with Andy back in the mid 70's, always had a good time when he came down to Miami to fly with the guys at Thermal Research. Bob

Andy visited Van Sant about 20 years ago. We went on a short XC around southeastern PA.

Me: EA say position

EA: Position

Me: EA let's try this again.

EA: how the hell should I know. I think Im at the south end of Lake Comeoniwannalaya.

Me: understood
