Andy was a loving husband, father and son who loved to spend time with his family. His wife and children were his life and he enjoyed going with them to the Stearns County Fair Demolition Derby, listening to Polka Music, playing board games and listening to his daughter play the piano. He also enjoyed restoring and repairing Model Ts for others as well as himself. Informally, Andy was an authority on Model T restoration, repairs and parts. He helped many people across the country with their restoration projects and questions. Andy loved working with machinery and especially demonstrating the threshing machines at the Albany Pioneer Days. At home, he enjoyed working with his Farmall Cubs in his Corn Garden. He will be remembered for his smart aleck remarks, quick wit and great one-liners. Andy will also be remembered for living his life treasuring the following: Family, Church and Community.
He is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Lisa; children, Joseph, Jack, and Katie; parents, Terry and Linda Loso; brothers, Matt (Wendy) and Ben (Julie); and mother and father-in-law, Roger and Mary Zinken; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
