Andy was one of the most extraordinary and talented people whoI have ever met. When I joined the Speech, Drama and Debate team at Clayton High School, Andy was the team’s “rock star”, as the team’s best dramatist, comedian and orator. I think he may even tried debate a couple of times for fun. As I got to know him more, I discovered that he had other special abilities, as an accomplished and creative writer and thinker. And then I learned that Andy was a spiritual and soulful person who cared deeply about his Judaism. I have no words for how sad his passing is and I offer my sincere condolences to his family.
A great light has gone out. We must continue his legacy by finding inspiration in Andy and using that inspiration to bring light to others.
