John Edward Andrews
MARQUETTE, MI – John Edward Andrews, age 80, of Marquette, died Saturday, June 8, 2019, at UP Health System – Marquette.
Born on March 6, 1939, John spent all but his earliest years in Marquette. He graduated from John D. Pierce High School and retired from Bunny Bread after working there all of his adult life.
John loved being out of doors especially at the family camp on Lake Independence, feeding the squirrels, puttering about his yard, and walking or riding the bus to his favorite “haunts”.
Survivors include his brother, Harley (Cheryl) and their sons, Ryan (Erin) and Dan; his brother, Stephen (Kathy) and their children, Jennifer Chen (Wayne), Megan Sanchez (David); and David Andrews (Rebecca), and numerous grand nieces, grand nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, John G. and Florence (Nelsen) Andrews; and his niece, Leah Andrews.
The family is extremely grateful to the staff at UP Health System – Marquette for the care and respect they gave to John during his time there.
The family will be comforted by the many “John-isms” that will live on beyond his passing.
As per John’s wishes, there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to UPAWS (Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter), P.O. Box 968, Marquette, MI 49855, in his memory.
