Andrew Stauffer, Jr.

Andrew Charles Stauffer, Jr. passed away Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at his home in Eagar after a brief illness.

Andy was a long-time resident of Alpine where he was a house painter, carpenter and part time Forest Service employee. Single, never married, Andy loved and cherished his freedom and lived life on his terms. He loved the forest; teaching himself about the animals and plants he saw on his hikes.

Andy lived simply and treasured his classic car and his cat, Leo. Andy was born in Monaca, Pennsylvania on November 10, 1949 to the late Andrew Charles Stauffer, Sr. and Helen Veronica Martinkovich Stauffer. Andy had been a steel mill worker, diesel mechanic and musician. He moved from western Pennsylvania to Colorado and finally settled in the White Mountains of Arizona.

He is survived by two sisters, Nanette Stauff, Santa Cruz, California and Arlette Kronk, Monaca, Pennsylvania. Andy’s cremains will be transported to Monaca, Pennsylvania where a funeral Mass will be held at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
