Andres worked in agriculture for over 30 years. While providing for his family as they were growing, he did not shy away from teaching them the value of hard work and earning things for themselves. He taught them to work hard but also to be generous with what they had.
Andres loved music and spending time with all of his children and grandchildren at every opportunity. Andres was the life of the party, every person he met became not just a friend, but part of his family. The family enjoyed barbequing outside and watching all the cousins play and grow up together. Another one of his passions was restoring cars. He had many vehicles throughout his life and there are countless pictures of him smiling next to them.
