He is survived by daughters Kim (Jay) Spiegel of Franklin, TN, Debi Andrews of Nashville, TN, and one son, Marc Andrews of Murfreesboro, TN. Grandchildren Maggie Spiegel of Louisville, KY, Jaimie Spiegel of Chattanooga, TN, and AJ Spiegel of Franklin, TN. One sister, Eunice “Eunie” Andrews Fleischmann, and three brothers – Tom (Cheryl), Bob, and Joe Andrews.
