Bio - John C. Andrews

John Andrews Bio PicJohn Andrews was born and raised in Hempstead NY. He is graduated from Hempstead High School., and Manhattan College, Riverdale, NY. He was awarded a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree, majoring in Economics and Finance. With his wife Barbara, John currently resides in Mechanicsburg PA. John and Barbara have five children and ten grandchildren.

John's professional background spans more than 40 years, supervising both employees and independent agents. During that time he acquired corporate experience and owned and operated two different insurance agencies. He has managed multi-million dollar budgets.

John's business career began with Alexander & Alexander an international insurance brokerage firm based in New York City (NYC). That experience led him to fourteen years of service at the F&M Schaefer Brewing Company in NYC, where he progressed from Risk Manager to Director of Human Resources (HR). As HR Director, John was responsible for the benefits of more than one thousand exempt employees. He was also responsible for Labor negotiations with thirty-two unions, representing three thousand union employees, at twelve locations.

John is a parishioner at St. Katherine Drexel Church, Mechanicsburg PA, and has served as President of the Parish Council for two terms. He has served as a Eucharistic Minister for more than thirty years.

In 2003, John completed the three-year Ecclesial Lay Minister (ELM) Program sponsored by the Diocese of Harrisburg PA. In combination, John's ELM training, long history of spiritual and corporeal charity, and significant business experience, position him well to be a Founder of, and Vice President of, Evangelization Enterprises, Inc., and the first President of its one of its operating divisions – i.e., Light and Heat Ministries.

UPDATE: John C. Andrews, of Mechanicsburg PA, at age 79, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday the 8th of August, 2015 from cancer. His loving wife of 58 years, Barbara, and their children surrounded him with love and prayers. He was predeceased on June 8 by his beloved son, POW and war hero Col. William F. Andrews (USAF). John is survived by 4 children: Susan Bachman; John Andrews; Jill Andrews; R. Brian Andrews; and Stacy Williams Andrews. "Poppy," was adored by his 11 grandchildren: Sean; Shannon; Patrick; William; Phoebe; Roth; Audrey; Jewell; Roland; Ella; and Maddie. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated August 11, 2015 at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church, 1 Peter Drive, Mechanicsburg, and John’s remains were buried at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Mechanicsburg.

Once John’s successor is named, we will relocate John’s profile to a section of our website that will be dedicated, in loving memory, to associates of Evangelization Enterprises Inc. and its operating division, Light and Heat Ministries, who have passed over to Life Eternal. We are grateful to God for the gift that John has been to all of us, and we pray for the happy repose of his soul. With sincere love and deep respect, Dcn. Joe Gorini <///><
