Andy worked at FyterTech as a lead operator for many years.  He loved his work and the people that he worked with.  He is remembered by his family and friends as a hard-working man with an incredible work ethic.  Andy had a contagious laugh that you could recognize right away.  He was a kind and caring person that lived life to the fullest, enjoyed spending time with his family and was always up for the next adventure!  Andy enjoyed going to the casino from time to time but was a fisherman at heart.  He had a true passion for fishing and would go whenever he could.  Andy also liked watching all the Wisconsin sports teams, he was an avid fan.  He is also remembered for his love of cats, and he had 4 of his own.  Andy will be sadly missed by all who knew him, but never forgotten.
