Andrew Paul Churchill was born November 3, 1980 in Wheaton to Stanley and Connie (Zabell) Churchill. He graduated from Wheaton High School class of 1999. He entered the United States Army shortly after High School and was honorably medically discharged in 2000. Following his military service he moved to Minneapolis to attend the Art Institute of Minnesota: culinary division. After graduating he worked in several reputable Steak Houses in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Andy moved back to Wheaton where he owned and operated Broadway Grill. Andy later moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming and worked in the Meat Department at King Soopers. After several years in Wyoming, Andy returned to Wheaton and met the love of his life Amy Vogt. To this union one daughter Aviana Nico Churchill was born. Andy was also an amazing step-dad to Atticus Waters. Andy was a unique soul. He had a wide variety of interests including a passion for music, astrology, trivia, spending time with his daughter and family and friends, tending to his spectacular beard, and his faithful companion Mr. Mojo Rising. Andy was super handy; there wasn’t much he couldn’t figure out from plumbing to fixing your furnace and everything in between. Andy worked for the Traverse Care Center as the environmental director and most recently worked for J & K Tool; a job he truly loved. Andy finally found his calling as a fabricator and welder and was treated as part of the Whaley family.
