Send Condolence

Andy Klein and I became unlikely friends when we first met in 1963 at the College of Emporia in Emporia, KS. Over time, I realized that he was dedicated, generous, loyal and the funniest person I ever would know. He was always willing to help people in need with his time, talent, and sometimes his resources. He was a proud volunteer rather than an obligatory one. He was always willing to share in a risky adventure with his friends. The many winter trips between Emporia and Pittsburgh in jalopies that were made in the early 50s provides testimony to his thrill-seeking. In 1970, my wife Susan decided that she wanted to see a high school friend who was living in the Panama Canal Zone. Andy said he would like to go with us. It took several antique propeller driven planes hopping from one Central American country to another to reach our destination. We were greeted at most airports by well-armed, ill-mannered guards. Andy was the perfect travel companion. He will always be remembered with a smile by the people who knew him best.

Dear Sherry, I was so sorry to read of Andy\\\'s passing in the PG and wish to extend my very sincere condolences to you. Both you and Andy were such gracious hosts on numerous occasions to your PITT/CCAC French group in your Squirrel Hill home. I did not know Andy was a graduate of Emporia College in Kansas, irony being Mary Ellen and I now live in Overland Park, KS to be closer to family. God bless and take care......our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Sherry, you know what I thought of my friend Andy, I knew him for over 50+ years. Our college days and beyond. Even though we did not get together often, it was when we did, we both understood that we were friends and nothing had changed during the times we were not in contact. I will miss him and his somewhat unusual personality, one that most of us came to love, and understood. I will miss his sense of humor and most of all I will miss my friend. I know how close he was to you and how much he cared for you. You can cherish his memory because he loved you.
