From Andy's sister Lydia: "Educator, traveler, linguist, musician, scholar, fisherman and raconteur, he was a precious friend as well as brother."

More about Andy, who died in Miami on August 10 after nine years of treatment for a rare blood cancer, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia. At Middlebury, Andy was a German major and very involved in music, singing and playing French horn and recorder. Among the highlights of his college years were performing in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and singing Bach and Schubert in the college choir under Emory Fanning. After graduation, Andy won a Fulbright Scholarship and completed his MA at Mainz University in Germany. He opposed the Vietnam War and served in the Army stateside in a medical capacity. In 1979 he completed an MD at SUNY-Buffalo but decided to go into teaching instead of medicine. Working in Miami public schools, he taught in a wide range of areas ranging from orchestra to Spanish to special education. He loved the classroom and was dedicated, innovative and eclectic in his interactions with his students. In addition, he spent many summers working in international camps in Switzerland, Denmark, France and the US. He was a dedicated hiker and fisherman – most of the pictures of him that I have seen in recent years showed him holding an enormous fish!

Thanks so much for this information, Bob.  There was so little info until your post.  Andy was a wonderful guy, and you have filled out the picture of him and his life wonderfully.  Thank you.  Mary
