Andrew spent most of his youth in Houston, TX and was educated in Houston Public Schools, but received his GED through the Texas Education Agency.

Andrew and Janet became entrepreneurs in which they had a landscaping, cleaning, and auto detail shop. Andrew faced a lot of physical ailments in his life but shocked the doctors and the world through his faith and favorite saying, “But God.” God’s plan for Andrew was enhanced after serving his last term at the Montford Unit when he met his love and joy, Janet Simmons in Lubbock, Texas. Andrew and Janet were perfect for each other spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. One year within their union Andrew received a kidney from his God-given gift, Janet. Love in 2008.
