Andrew loved fishing and being out on the water in his boat. He loved being around family and friends. The apples of his eye were his daughter Emma Rose and his wife Katie and he adored spending time with them. He adored his parents and each of his family members deeply. Family meant more to him than anything.
Corn holing, football (Tennessee Titans), playing cards and being with others are also things Andrew enjoyed immensely. Andrew had soft spots for animals, especially his pet dogs Tucker and Petunia and his cat Medusa.
