From the house he built to the truck he built from the ground up. He took pride in the fact that he still had a 1964 lawn mower that he took great care of and can fix if needed. He was a very gifted jack of all trades and enjoyed tinkering around in his garage. Andy enjoyed watching the Detroit Lions as well as the Detroit Tigers. He also watched Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune every day. In his free time, he liked to play golf and went out whenever he could.
