I can truly say that Andy was very unique. He had a very kind heart. He would kid me saying you are the only person that really scares me. I asked him why, since he was the strong military type and I was a grandmother and a woman unarmed. Then he would give me a hug. He is really missed. I am keeping you dear Charmin in my prayers.

Andy's gentle nature, humor and love for his family and friends I will never forget. His brotherly embrace and words of comfort when my so died I will always remember. Rest in the arms of our Lord Jesus my brother Andy.
My friendship with Andrew came from a relationship at the PBA where he represented Amano for our cashier's booth equipment. I believe I have known him for about 8 years, seeing him on almost a weekly basis, either on an emergency call or when he just needed to kill some time and visit with me at my garage. Our friendship grew during that time, culminating in a special time of prayer together after I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in late 2018 and treatments through early 2019. One special day occurred when, during his visit, we separated from the booth for a few minutes and he earnestly prayed for me, holding hands together over in the corner of the garage. I'm sure he shed some tears and so did I. While others were also praying for me (I recovered after Radiation treatments), that was a special time together for showing me a very private side of his life and personality, and cemented our friendship to something far beyond just a work-related one. Though now retired from the PBA since the beginning of October, and since I haven't seen him in person since then, we did have one conversation on the phone when I informed him that I was leaving, and that we hoped to "get together" at some point out side of work. Sadly, this did not occur, and we'll have to wait until seeing each other in Heaven to determine who pays for lunch! Blessings and comfort to the family!
I will surely miss his weekly phone calls while driving between customers. Each time I called him he would ask, "What did I do now?" I was privileged to had worked with him for the past year. Sending prayers, love & light to the family!!!!!
A slide show of memories will begin at 11:45 and the service will begin at 12 pm EST. We look forward to sharing our memories of a wonderful husband and father.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the soul of Andrew, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
I remember being stationed with Andy in Germany. He had a mustang 5.0 and I had a Chevy Cavalier and every so often we would race each other. He was a great friend and an even better soldier. RIP my friend. Courage Conquers!!!!
Andrew you taught me a lot of technical things at work that made life so much easier. You always had a smile that brightened up the day even when things werent going good. You will be missed.
Good Times with Good Friends
Charmin, We are shocked and saddened by Andy's passing. We have so many wonderful memories from our time serving together. He touched so many people's hearts wherever he went. It's actually quite appropriate that he passed on Veterans Day. He was always one of my best NCO's but more importantly, was always a True Friend.
Love you dear friend and I am praying for you, we are so heartbroken over Andy's passing but one thing we know for sure we will see him again and what a reunion that will be in heaven, so many memories of Andy and I shall hold onto them until we meet again.
I served with Sgt Foth in Germany and the Middle East. He was a friend and a brother. My deepest condolences to his family. He will be missed.
I am so very sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my prayers for comfort and peace.
With deepest sympathies,
I am utterly heartbroken to hear of your loss! You and Andy have always been people whose very memory makes me smile. I'm praying for strength and healing for you....
Charmin I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words right now that I can say to help but just know you’re in my prayers and that you and your family are loved. Ruthie Kuhlman
Words can not express the way we feel for you at this point. I really liked MR CHARMIN a lot that is what he called himself last time I saw him. EDDIE AND SUSIE WILLIS
