Andy Froistad Memorial - Our Love and Support

Andy Froistad was larger than life itself.  The boy from Minnesota knew how to bring a smile to everyone’s face.  His good-hearted antics are truly stuff of legend.   He knew how to make anyone he met feel they were the center of attention.  His personality was infectious - and making you laugh was his mission in life.   No obstacle was too big with Andy in your corner.  That is Andy’s legacy...  one of friendship - on a magnitude of loyalty like no other, one of patriotism and service, one of dedication to family and friends and country.   An amazing father, husband, friend and human being.  To those of us who knew Andy best... he was our Care Bear.   While we grieve for the loss of our great friend and brother, we cherish and tell the stories of how Andy brought laughter and happiness to our lives.

Please rally with us to support the Froistad family.  Your donations go directly to the Froistad family and will reduce/eliminate the financial burden associated with the loss of this amazing human being.Obituary:

    Andy was one of my first leaders, and first personal and professional advocates. He inspired me in so many ways. I always knew that there was an advocate in my corner in any environment I shared with him.
