He especially enjoyed gardening at the Armstrong gardens with his mentor and neighbor Tom Lewis; going on vacations with his family to North Lake, Lake Silkworth and Lake Carey; spending time with friends dancing at the American Legion; and volunteering at the Hospice Labor Day Auction.

To the Chappory Family,
We send our condolences to you all. I grew up with all of you. We have lost touch over the years but I think often of our get togethers. We would see Brian and Andy from time to time at Lanco Lodge. I know what it is like losing a parent let alone both parents. We send our love to you.

To the Chappory Family,
I send my condolences to all of you. I have known all of you since you were babies. I went to school with your mother. We would spend a lot of time together. Shimpy and I had a lot of good times with your parents. Shimpy and Andy did a lot of hunting and fishing together. We attended Penn State games together. I send my love to each of you.

“Dancing Andy” was a fixture at Park City Center for many years.  We had many lively conversations and loved to hear about how much he loved to dance and he even showed us a few times.  He’s been missed over the last year or so and we were all sad to see his obituary in today’s paper.  Thank you for sharing him with all of us.

My Grandfather, Raymond Fellenbaum, was a founding member of Lanco Lodge and my Dad, Gehman Miller, was a lifelong member.  I never met Andy but my Dad always spoke highly of him.  If time shared with your Dad gave you the same precious memories I have of time shared with my family, then Andy’s life was a life well spent.  I’m sure he will be greatly missed.  You are in my thoughts during this sad time.  In sympathy – Carol Ann (Miller) Flick

Our thoughts and prayers are with your whole family during your time of sorrow.
As a child I have fond memories of Uncle Andy and Sylvia spending time with my Mom, Dad, and all us kids both at our house in Middletown and your’s in Lancaster.  Always remember cookouts and having plenty of snacks with the cookies and chips your dad always brought.  I know they were very close and enjoyed each others company spending family time together.  The best of days long ago but never forgotten……..
I imagine what they’re doing now they’re all together in heaven.  God Bless them !!!!
May God’s peace be with your family……….
