MAXWELL, Andrew A. "Andy"

Passed away Monday evening, February 26, 2018 at his home. Andy was born January 25, 1954 in Detroit, MI the son of Donald and Catherine (Loper) Maxwell. He was a member of Calvary Bible Church and was employed with Pharmacia for 27 years as an International Packaging Engineer.

Andy was a devoted father, husband and son. He was an avid outdoorsman, and an all-star athlete in high school and college. Spending time with his family, reading his Bible, hunting, playing guitar, cross country racing, swimming, biking, and kayaking are some of the things he enjoyed most. In spite of health challenges for many years, he submitted to God's perfect plan with grace and praise. Blessing many with his kindness, Andy always took the opportunity to shake a hand, give a compliment or share the gospel.

Also surviving are his children, Megan Maxwell (Jordan Baker), Jenna Maxwell, Jacob (Julia) Maxwell, Chloe Maxwell; grand-daughter, Amelia; brother, Don (Lisa) Maxwell; father and mother-in-law, John (Marie) Polderman; and many nieces and nephews.
