Born in Manhattan and raised in Lake Mohawk, N.J., Andy graduated from Blair Academy. At Princeton, he majored in economics, was vice president of Court Club, served on the business board of Tiger, joined Whig-Clio, and was an all-out participant in intramural sports. He roomed with John Brotherton ’50, Dave Donahower, and Dick Hammer.
Andy spent much of the three years following graduation sailing the Mediterranean as a naval officer, attended Columbia Business School for two years, then dabbled in Cuban and Miami real estate before joining a Wall Street firm, Tucker Anthony, as an analyst and broker.
In 1972, following a divorce he moved to San Francisco to join the then high-flying investment banking firm Hambrecht & Quist, thus beginning an entrepreneurial career that involved the formation of his own investment company and active involvement in such enterprises as trucking, aquaculture, gold mining, geothermal power, and abalone harvesting.
Predeceased by his second wife in 2004, Andy’s survivors include five children and two stepchildren.
