In 1996, after 31 years of service, Andy retired as a calibration mechanic from Pearl Harbor. This lasted for 5 months, when he began working part time at Hawaiian Airlines, increasing to full time after a year. He retired in 2011 for a second time after 15 years with Hawaiian.
Dad had many interests after retirement. He golfed, fished, made ukuleles, took tai chi classes, and attended adult classes at Kamehameha Schools learning how to sew and mend lay nets. Dad loved to sing. He had a beautiful tenor voice which he utilized as a member of the choir at St. John's Church in Mililani for the past 25 years. He spent much of the last 10 years in his work shop, making ukuleles for family and friends, approximately 20 in all. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Most of all, he was a man who loved God and loved his family, and his family loved him so much in return.
Andres is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lorraine; children: Charlelynn, Catherine (Joel), Nadine, Dean (Laurie) and Douglas (Elaine); grandchildren: Brennen, Nathaniel, Keola, Alek, Breana, Rachel, Rayven and Colten; great grandchildren: Robert, Abriella, Athena, Ayla, and Amari.
