We Remember: Andrew Horsley
|Andrew Horsley of Arlington, VA and Lewes, DE, died on August 10, 1999 as a result of leukemia. He was 59. Originally from Narberth, PA, Andy took early retirement from Bell Atlantic in 1992 after thirty years with the Bell Companies and AT&T as an executive in the Marketing and Human Resources areas.
Upon retirement, he formed his own Human Resources practice, Richard Andrew, Inc., working with such clients as Right Associates; the U.S. Government and the United Nations. His client work took him to Australia in 1994 and to Vienna, Austria in 1995/96.
He was a graduate of Dickinson College, the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, and the Center for Continuing Education at Georgetown University.
Andy enjoyed chronicling his own and his friends' lives with his ubiquitous camera; with remodeling projects at his Victorian home in Lewes; fitness; augmenting his collection of historical artifacts; singing with the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington; volunteering with Food and Friends and other gay organizations. Andy often commented that he had been blessed with many opportunities that allowed him to enjoy and experience a rich and rewarding life.
He is survived by his four daughters: Catherine Ann Younger of Freeland, MD; Beth and Jenny of Philadelphia; Kristen Iskandrian of Denver, CO; two grandchildren: Jimmy and Courtney; his mother Isabelle of Narberth, PA and his sister, Patt of Whitehaven, PA. And importantly, his best and caring friends: Joe Canon, Bob Dolehide, George Epting, Alan Keffer, Charlie Leonard, Van Stewart and Thom Swiger.
His ashes have been laid to rest with his paternal grandparents in Gladwyne, PA; Cape Henlopen Park in Lewes; and the Rocky Mountains in Breckenridge, CO.
Contributions in Andy's memory may be sent to the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, P.O. Box 57043, Washington, DC.
