  14. Jeff Hashe says:

    I was one of Andy’s classmates at Sullivan South. We ran cross-country and track together, and we shared several classes. Andy was a good friend and a great person. I was hoping to see him at our 10-year and 20-year reunions, but he didn’t make them. I was hoping he’d get on Facebook so I could catch up with him. I thought about him over the years, and I figured he was living a good life. I didn’t realize all of his outstanding accomplishments in his career. I wish I had had a chance to reconnect with him. His life was cut way too short. Please accept my deepest condolences.

  15. Carroll Logan says:

    Over the past 20 years I have watched Andy grow and develop. He looked on me as a mentor, but most of the time the roles were reversed. His caring for people and his professionalism continued to develop through the years. I had many business discussions with him, and he always looked at how his decisions would impact family, friends, and the institution he served. Andy was a true gentleman. His blend of intelligence, caring, and expertise made him not only a successful fundraiser, but friendraiser. He is geatly missed..

What a great comfort it is to have your memories, and also to know where he is…in the Presence of the Lord Jesus. I pray that God will pour out His grace upon you as He did with me when my mother went home to be with the Lord. I love you.

    Dear Dunsmore Family, I just found the notice of Andy’s untimely death while looking for Beecher’s obituary. How profoundly sorry I am for both deaths. May they both rest in God’s everlasting arms.

    Blessings and love,
