Frank “Sonny” E. Andy of Canonsburg passed peacefully Thursday March 19, 2020 in the home of his daughter.
He was born May 22, 1939 in Canonsburg, son of the late Frank Andy and Anna Zeman Andy. Frank served in the Army and was a welding inspector at Fort Pitt Bridgeworks.
Some of his favorite hobbies were hunting and fishing and he would often chat about it with anyone who would sit to listen. Frank loved taking all of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren fishing with him. He enjoyed playing the lottery and going to The Meadows or Wheeling to play the slots. Frank loved watching the horse races, golf, game shows, and FOX News. Above all animals captured his heart. Anywhere he went you would find him feeding the birds, squirrels, geese, stray cats, and any other wildlife that would let him.
Frank is survived by daughter Natalie Thomas (John), step-daughter Lorraine Lindsay(Michael), step son’s Roger Reichenbach (Rebecca), Chuck Reichenbach (Melissa), sister Dorthy Suleski (Harry), brother-in-law Joseph Bodvak. Seven grandchildren, Ashley O’Brien (Sean), Amber Shipp(Adam), Ben Reichenbach, Charlie Reichenbach, Stephanie Brennan(Evan), Brandon Hale, and Lindsay Reichenbach. Eight great-grandchildren, Nicholas O’Brien, Collin O’Brien, Isabella Shipp, Dante Shipp, Urijah Shipp, Xander Shipp, Eviana Shipp, and Landyn Reichenbach. And many nieces and nephews.
Deceased in addition to his parents and wife are sister Rose Bodvak, sister Margaret Winseck (Theodore).
He will now join wife Linda Jo McCullers in rest, whom preceded his death in 2017.
Services will be held at a later date.
Frank will be buried at The National Cemeteries of the Alleghenies.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Wildlife Society as all animals were close to Frank’s heart at www.wildlife.org or

I’ve finished life’s chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I’ve been invited to the fishin’ hole.
Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don’t worry, or feel sad for me,
I’m fishin’ with the Master of the sea.
We will miss each other for awhile,
But you will come and bring your smile.
That won’t be long you will see,
Till we’re together you and me.
To all of those that think of me,
Be happy as I go out to sea.
If others wonder why I’m missin’
Just tell ’em I’ve gone fishin’
