« on: April 04, 2017, 06:21:54 pm »
It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you my Forestry Forum Friends that our Dear Friend Andy White had a massive heart attack this morning and died. 

Andy had the biggest heart for giving as I have ever known.  I could fill pages with instances where he gave so much of himself to others.  The sawing for dablack (Austin Black) and wwsjr (Willie Steele) are two instances of his Love and Giving Spirit.

Pat and I offer our sincerest condolences to Nancy and to his sister Martha, and to the rest of his family.  The big guy with the gruff voice will be missed.

I am devastated to hear this. Just talked to Magicman. A lot of people are heart broken just as I am.
They just don't get any better than Andy....you may tie him but no better.
Julie and I sat and talked to Andy and his wife at the Pig Roast 2 years ago.
You could not help but love them....truly Gods angels on earth.

We will all miss you brother....RIP Andy. You were a mans man.

This is a great loss for all of us. Andy was such a big part of the Forestry Forum. He was one of our members that embodied the true spirit of what we are here. So sad to hear this. Andy had become a friend to so many of us and will be dearly missed.

So hard to believe he is gone.  What a great person. Never met him but felt I knew him from posts and the context of those.  So sorry/ sad.

Met Andy at Austin Blacks sawing project. I really took a liking to Andy and Nancy. He was was a hard worker and carried his share of the load. Met up on other outings as well. I didn't realize that Andy had so many talented skills until I began reading his post with detailed instructions and photos. All the wood working, then the rebuild of there Mustang. His hands and heart were so inspiring to a lot of people. I will miss seeing Andy at our next meeting which could be to help another person thru a hard time or eating some good food for another occasion. Will miss that big kind fella for sure. RIP my friend.  bg

Oh what a shame.
Andy and family were also at Jeff's place in Wisconsin, and I was super impressed with his humour, knowledge and easy ability to connect with people.
His post on building a workbench was outstanding; it detailed both successes and failures (and how to compensate for them). Posts like that made you feel like you know somebody. His heart was there.

Andy, you'll be missed!

Never met Andy, but have said for a long time, "I need to visit this man" . Like Mr Tom and Bro Noble, he will live on through his posts on the forum. Condolences to Nancy and Martha.  RIP Andy..

   Like so many others have posted I never met him but he seems like a long time friend and I miss him. My thoughts are with his wife and family. I trust there is a woodshop in heaven.

I am so sad to here this. Andy had touched our lives personally. I had the great pleasure of visiting with him on a couple occasions. He was a great man with a heart of pure gold. He will be missed

  We met Andy and Nancy at the PR three years ago.  They won a WM LT40 replica during the drawing for prizes.  Then gave it to us to give our grandsons.  Great people!  You meet the best people at Forum and sawmill events!
