Born June 25, 1960 in Evanston IL, he was the youngest child of Donald Warren Cather and Maxine Miller Cather. He grew up in Port Chester, NY, and Stone Mountain GA.

Andrew was a gifted mechanic beyond his training and experience. His skills as a cook he brought with him from his time working for his sister Martha McGuire (Jerry) at their business, Kelly’s Sea Level, in Rye, NY.
His greatest joy was his family and friends, especially his son, Andrew, Jr., (Jamie) and granddaughter Maclaren Ann. He loved his step grandchildren Tyler, Riley, and Sophie, and his step children Brent, Heather and Whitney.
All who loved him will remember his cooking, he generous spirit, and his sense of humor.

Andrew is survived by his son, Andrew Jr., (Jamie), his granddaughter Maclaren, his mother, Maxine, brother Donald Jr., brother Bernard, and sisters Judy, Martha, Samantha, numerous nieces and nephews, and his first wife Louise Cather.
His family and friends will miss him terribly.
