Andy; you and your character will be missed.  Ever since grade school you have been one who stood out from the crowd.  From Jr high dances to class president to the 50th year reunion you've been front and center with your leadership and charisma.  Rest in Peace brother.

I am so sad to hear of Andy's passing! He lived down the block from me and was often part of pick up softball games with other Baker Avenue kids, and biking all over the place. He was a genuinely nice guy! I am glad that I got to see him at the 50th reunion last year. My prayers are with his family! Becky (Paul) Lockwood

In spite of only being active in sports, I remember you and how active you were in school and in all of your involvement since that time. My visual memory of you only goes back to 1970, but maybe that is not so bad either.

Wow, very sorry to hear about Andy. So many great memories. I'm sure just about everyone from the class of 1970 has some Andy story to tell. He was kind of the Ferris Bueller of Mankato High.

Oh, boy. Tom Paradis just informed me of Andy's passing. So, so sorry. Andy was a childhood friend who stayed in touch off and on his whole life long. We knew one another well ahead of those halcyon highschool days; our families were associated through Centenary Methodist Church. As youngsters Andy and I saw Rev. Martin Luther King deliver a sermon in the sanctuary. As teens we were stalwarts in MYF and the youth choir and attended church camp ... mischievous? yes; malicious, never. July has been a hell of a month: first Mark Scheidel ('69), now this. God bless and keep you, Andy. In Him you shall find good rest.

Was shocked and saddened to hear of Andy's passing. Thirty-eight years ago we named our son Andy, after Andy Johnson. So glad we had the opportunity to tell classmate Andy that his personality influenced us so much that we named our son after him. Our sympathy to the family. He will be missed by so many!

So sad to hear of Andy's passing. Such a special person. Wonderful memories of the "Rutabaga" days, when he and many highschool friends would hang out at our house on Byron Street. Andy was one of our positive, fun ringleaders, then and always beloved and admired. Thank you, Andy, for such fond memories!
