Needless to say Andy Stroud was nothing less than an amazing man in so many ways......
Andy loved life and lived it to the fullest every day. He always had a smile on his face and he had a way to bring joy and happiness to all of his family and friends no matter the circumstance.
Andy loved his family more then anything. Andy and Shala were high school sweethearts and anyone who was around them could see they still had that twinkle in their eye for each other every day. The playful loving way they would joke around and be serious at the same time is an inspiration to any couple. Their daughter Alyse was definatley a daddy's girl and Andy loved it. Alyse knew she had control over her daddy by just looking up at him with her big brown eyes and you knew Andy melted. Andy was so excited about the soon to be new addition to their family coming in December, and I know she would have been daddy's girl also.
Andy also cherished his time with his friends. Time spent with some cold beers and some good tunes was a great night to Andy, singing his heart out to every song that was blaring out. With Andy you felt like family, he would welcome you into his family with open arms and no expectations. He just loved to have people around and make everlasting memories with them. Andy had the biggest heart of anyone I knew, he did not think twice to lend a hand to a neighbor, friend or family member. Andy never expected anything in return or complained he just would help out where needed. Andy is an inspiration to anyone that knew him, he was an exceptional husband, father, brother, son and a friend and he will forever be missed by so many!!
