I met Andy in a leadership training class in San Antonio last year. We sat next to each other, from the start he started with the jokes. He was a jot to be around and made us laugh all week. He will be missed, he often spoke about Jamaica Beach and how he loved the community he served. RIP my friend and see you on the other side.

On behalf of Clint Wayne Brown who is currently serving our country in South Korea, we want to extend our deepest sympathy to Andy’s family. Andy was a long-time friend of Clint’s and I know my brother will greatly miss him. On the few occasions I have had to speak to my brother via satellite from SK, Clint always ask “How is Andy” I know Clint will be deeply sadden, and wish that he could be here for services. May God’s blessing be on your family and God’s peace forever with Andy. God Bless you, Your extended family Constable Precinct 1 and Coleena Jackson

I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleausre of working with Andy while he was with GPD. He was extremely ethical, warm-hearted and mischieveous. Andy was serious about his job while still enjoying life with all of its eccentricities. He was a pleasure to work with. Everyone who was blessed to know him will miss his smile, his sense of humor and his passion for life.
