Andy Huntsberger

Charles Andrew Huntsberger Jr.

August 25, 1946 - June 16, 2013

Charles Andrew Huntsberger Jr. passed away June 16, 2013. He was born in Marshall, TX on August 25, 1946 to Charles Andrew Huntsberger Sr and Sarah Blanche Pettitt.
Charles known better as "Andy" graduated from Marshall High School. He went on to study at Kilgore Jr. College where he met his wife Terry Ann Cohagen. After junior college they both attended Stephen F. Austin University. Andy graduated in 1970 with his BBA; they were married April 17, 1971.
Andy was a giving man who loved his music. In high school he played the saxophone in the band and also was a member of the quartet that played for school dances. Once he was even given the opportunity to record a record with a group of friends. His favorite music was from the 60's which he kept loaded on his iPod. In later years he enjoyed mowing on his Ford tractor, with the 60's music blaring in his ears.
As his family grew, Andy proved to be a wonderful father who was all about family. He was loving, caring, thoughtful and was always there for his children and our parents. There was scouting, sports, fishing and trips to see the grandparents. Andy worked for Braniff Airlines for 10 years, enjoying the perks of the job, before going to LTV.
Andy was a quiet man who was always watching out for his friends and neighbors. He was also an elder with the Presbyterian Church and a true Cowboys fan. At the time of his passing he was a faithful member of The Woods UMC in Grand Prairie, TX.
He is survived by his wife Terry Ann Huntsberger; sons Steven Andrew Huntsberger, Jeremy Scott Huntsberger and his wife Katie; grandson Jonathan Leo Huntsberger; sister Ann Louise Huntsberger; nephew James Matthew Cohagen; cousins Robert Huntberger, Esther Cook and Sara Jo Gibson.

A kind and generous spirit -- a friend, indeed.  How lucky we all are to have known Andy over the years.  Ken and I had fun thinking of him being a "country gentleman farmer" with his tractor on his family's land near Marshall.  What a treat it was when he would drop by for a visit when he was in town.  Andy, we will miss you.

Nancy, I couldn't agree more.  Andy was a kind and giveing person.  He was one of my closest friends in high school and we met as members of the band in junior high.  I, along with others had a lot rides in that Chevy malibu.

I was fortunate to see he and Terry at the 2004 reunion and I am going to get to the burial ceremony on Saturday.

I have known Andy since we were classmates  in elementary school. He was a good man and a good friend. At the 10th Year Class Reunion, there was a rumor that I was deceased, and Andy called my parents to tell them that he was sad to learn that. Now it is I that is sad to learn that Andy is gone from us. I wish that we had  kept in touch. Farewell my friend.
