He and his younger brother Gregory attended the School of Wooden Boat Building in Port Townsend in 1999/2000 where Andrew worked at local organic farms. Andy always loved nature and the out-of-doors; and wherever he lived, he enjoyed learning more about the environment and passing that knowledge on to others.
Andy volunteered for, and took classes at the Carson Nature Center in Littleton, CO; the Marine Science Center in Port Townsend; and most recently, the Feiro Marine Life Center in Port Angeles.
Andy is survived by his mother, Jennie; two brothers, Scott and Gregory Staritzky; aunts, uncles and cousins in Colorado.
