work and being a part of the Designs for Health family was one of the
highlights of his life.
Besides his family Andy loved his two cats, his Las Vegas Raiders,

watching the birds outside, also soaking in his hot tub everyday. He was
also, a fan of Jim Carey and horror movies. Above all he was an avid golfer.
Guess you could say Andrew Casagranda loved life! All of us who knew
him are going to miss his infectious sense of humor. It always made him
happy when someone laughed at his jokes which came often. Andy was
the most caring, compassionate, loving and funny person who’s hugs
always made people feel secure and so loved. He will be missed dearly.
