I will always remember my Uncle Andy as being so thoughtful and intelligent. My Uncle was such a kind gentleman. I have many happy memories of big Finneran family events at his home in the summer when I was young. I am also thankful for the times when I was older when
Uncle Andy would share a funny story or thoughtful guidance with me.
My Uncle Andy was an incredible man and we will miss him dearly.
