Andy was well known among the farming community as he worked with his brother-in-law at Midwest Pumping II. Many farmers had his number when help was needed and he was always willing to lend a hand. He loved joking around with his family, particularly with his daughters and many nephews and nieces. You didn’t have to be around Andy long to know he was a person of strong opinions, especially when it came to his beloved John Deere tractors and Ford trucks.

Andy was preceded in death by his grandparents, Harold and Alberta Reth; grandparents-in-law, Bernard and Ardella Schlichte, and Gerald Hoefer.

In lieu of flowers, monetary donations can be made toward college funds for his daughters, Lacy and Tracy, at Community Savings Bank.
