Loss

Andrew was lost off the coast of Hawaii on October 12, 1942, while serving as a pilot for Torpedo Squadron (VT) 3. Unable to determine if this was a training mission or a patrol, but because he does not appear on the Killed In Action scroll in Memorial Hall it's likely it was a training mission.

His wife was listed as next of kin.


Class of 1939

Andrew is one of 75 members of the Class of 1939 in Memorial Hall.
