Ralph D. Andrew



Ralph D. "Cork" Andrew,
75, of Lancaster, PA passed
away from a
short battle
with mesothelioma
on
December
10th, 2013 at
Hospice &
Community
Care. The
wonderful
team at Hospice provided him
comfort in his remaining days.
Born in Lancaster, he was
predeceased by his beloved
parents, Ralph D. and Violet
Andrew, as well as his wife,
Judi.
Cork worked at Armstrong
World Industries from 1955
until his retirement in 1997.
After that, he spent his
remaining years as a caddy at
the Lancaster Country Club,
around the sport he, his
father, and his son enjoyed
most.
Surviving him are his son,
Brad and wife Michelle;
daughter, Lisa Condon and
husband Nate. As well, he
leaves behind his grandchildren,
Jacob, Logan, and Ashley
Andrew. He also left
behind many others who
loved him very much.
Cork had many passions
throughout his life including
traveling west, golf, geology,
astronomy, history, and especially
the Mid-Atlantic coastline.
For the last 13 years,
Cork spent much of his summers
at Bethany Beach, DE
with his Special Friend of 13
years, Judy Greiner and her
family. He loved life and all
the people who filled his life
throughout the years.
His family would be honored
by the presence of those
in his life on Saturday,
December 14th, from 9:00
a.m. - 11:30 a.m. for a Celebration
of Life at the Eden
Resort, 222 Eden Rd., Lancaster,
PA 17601 in the Courtyard.
His service, at his request,
will be privately held.
Given Cork's love of the
west and all the U.S. National
Parks, gifts in his honor can
be made to the National Parks
Foundation, 1201 Eye St. NW,
Suite 550B, Washington, DC
20005.
