Malcum "Andy" St. Andre passed from this life into the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 21, 2023 in Longview, Texas. Andy was born May 31, 1933 in Montgomery, Louisiana to Oleat St. Andre and Lena Mae DuBois St. Andre.
A kind and loving man he was a friend to everyone he met, Andy loved people and never missed an opportunity to share some good groceries with the people he loved. Andy loved gospel music and most weekends you could find him playing his Martin guitar and singing at a local church. He loved to travel and spend time camping and fishing. Andy worked in the oil and gas industry where he retired from Marshall Exploration. Never one to sit idle, he found a way to share his kindness, infectious smile, and repertoire of jokes with a generation of young people as a custodian and bus driver as well as with many campers at Lake o' the Pines where he worked at the camp grounds for the Army Corp. of Engineers. Faith was an important part of Andy's life. He was very involved with Oak Grove Baptist Church and most recently Athey Baptist Church, both in Harleton, Texas.
He is preceded in death by his parents; his son, Roger St. Andre; his daughter, Connie St. Andre; his granddaughter, Michelle St. Andre; his siblings, Lester St. Andre and wife Dolores, and Alton St. Andrie.
