To Andy's family and friends, I've known Andy for the last 10 years and met him in the American Legion Post #159 when I moved to Venice 12 years ago. He used to come in often and we would talk at the bar. The last time I saw him, he was with members of his family. He was indeed a great man and served his Country and the NYPD very proudly. As a member of the American Legion's Honor Guard for the last 8 years, I would be proud to be involved in his Military Funeral at Sarasota National Cemetery when it is scheduled after the virus issues are abated!! God bless Andy and his family and friends. RIP Andy!!
