Last Known Activity

Andy's callsign was Rambunctious and he lived up to his callsign. He always had a smile on his face and he never knew a stranger. That is what his shipmates fondly remember about Andy. Andy's legacy is the two sons he leaves behind. He love being a father and he spent his off time doing as many things with his boys as possible. A favorite story that we tell about Andy is the Baker Shuffle. It was a late night hop on the carrier and Andy crossed in front of a turning E2, Andy was spinning in his tracks trying to get across the flight deck. Thus the Baker Shuffle was named that night for the fancy footwork as Andy ran to beat the aircraft.

Died during Helicopter crash on USS Taylor March 13, 1997. He was assigned to the HS-3.The Seahawk, operating off the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy, crashed about 11:30 P.M. during a training exercise about 80 miles off North Carolina. It crashed while trying to refuel from a Navy frigate.
