"PK" as Andrew was fondly called inspired people wherever he went.  He lived a life full of love for family, friends, and for reading and music.  Andrew chose a military career, graduating from the USMA at West Point in 2006. 

Andrew earned his Ranger Tab in 2009 and his Special Forces Green Beret in 2012.  Andrew deployed twice to Afghanistan. 

His caring and generous way will be remembered by every person's life he ever touched.
