MSG Marckesano served in the 82nd Airborne, 75th Ranger Regiment, and 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) as a Green Beret. Andy had multiple combat deployments to Afghanistan and missions to Central and South America. Andy will always be remembered for his devoted service to the United States and commitment to ensuring the well being and safety of others he served with. In 2016 he heroically distinguished himself by exceptional gallantry and was awarded the Silver Star. On 07 July 2020, we lost our beloved Andy far too early. Andy was a father, role model, leader, a friend, and a mentor.
Andy is survived by his wife Erin and three children: Riley (9), Andrew (7), and Madeline (4). All three shared a special bond with their father who loved them deeply. Andy's children live with their mother, Andy's ex wife Quinn Padilla.
Not a day will go by that his children will not think and miss their father dearly. Their love for him is eternal. The memory of Andy will live on through them. Riley, Drew, and Madeline, like the Soldiers who Andy trained and served with, will continue to honor his legacy by living a life that would make their father proud. During this difficult and emotional period, we ask for support to assist in alleviating the financial burden incurring due to the loss of Andy. Andy was an amazing father and he always ensured his children were loved and taken care of in every way. Any assistance or contribution is greatly appreciated and will go directly to supporting the Andy’s three beautiful children.
