They made their home in Brentwood, California. His love for Esther was very evident, his smile ever present. Soon after their marriage Andrew became an ordained minister, while pastoring throughout California he often built new sanctuaries. They moved to Gravett, Arkansas in 1989 where Andrew lived his dream raising limousin cattle, riding his many horses, and being part of Cowboys for Christ. He loved the trail rides and herding cattle. Andrew also worked for the public school system retiring with honors at the age of 75. Andrew was always known for his work ethic. In 2005 they moved to Boise, Idaho to be near their great grandchildren. Throughout all the years of his life he traveled to see his siblings, grandchildren, great grandchildren and took great pride in all of them.
