It is with great regret and extreme sadness that we announce the untimely and very tragic passing of our close friend, coworker and long time employee, Andrew Aranda.
All funds raised by this campaign will be donated directly to Andrew's family to help with funeral and end-of-life expenses.
Andrew began working at Luci's Healthy Marketplace at just 16 years old and was mature and smart beyond his years. He quickly rose at Luci’s Healthy Marketplace to be a trusted and respected supervisor within a very short period of time. At the time of his passing on August 10th, 2018 Andrew was just 22 years old. He was still serving as one of our longest, most trusted and loyal employees of 6+ years. Andrew was a wonderful friend and kind soul to everyone who knew him and knew everyone's name and drink order that walked through our doors. Andrew's smile, warm and positive spirit was always with him. His unique laugh was extremely infectious and could be easily heard. Andrew was willing to help anyone at anytime. This was his legacy, a legacy of friendship, giving, kindness and pure goodness to everyone he crossed paths with. Andrew was like a son to the owners, like a brother to his coworkers and a friend to our guests. He was friendly and gracious to everyone! We mourn the tragic loss of this incredibly loving and good person. Having Andrew in our lives over the last 6 years was a special gift. Our hearts and prayers go out to Andrew's wonderful family at this very difficult time.
A memorial service will be held at Camelback Bible Church (3900 E. Stanford Dr., Paradise Valley, AZ 85253) Saturday, August 18th, 2018 at 1pm. All are welcome to attend.
We all love Andrew deeply and we will always miss him.
Thank You! Jerry & Jessica Mansoor, Ken & Luci Schnitzer and the entire Luci's Family
