Fun, loving, witty kind of guy. Who loved to bargain almost as much as he loved to argue. He loved to travel all around with his wife and cook with her.
Andrew “Andy” O. Kubala died unexpectedly in Northside Hospital on October 8, 2017 in St. Petersburg, FL at the age of 78 following complications after surgery.
Andy is survived by his loving wife Debbie Anderson, daughters Julie (Scott) Daniels of Long Grove, IA; Carolyn (Daniel) Leyva of Valdosta, GA; Sandra (Aaron) Rotondaro of Zionsville, IN; Susan Winzer of New Tripoli, PA as well as 5 grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents Andrew and Gizelle Kubala and a daughter Nancy Kubala.
Andrew was born on May 25, 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio to Andrew Kubala Jr. and Gizelle “Sally” Otis. He graduated from Fenn College/Cleveland State University in 1963 with a degree in Bachelor of Civil Engineering and Structural Engineering. He married Debbie Anderson on Feb. 14, 2017.
Andy was President and founder of Waste Technology Inc for more than 20 years, performing environmental investigations and remediation for industrial giants including U.S Steel, EJ&E Railway, and USX realty development. He officially retired in August 2015 and enjoyed traveling with Debbie all over the US in their campers, skeet and trap shooting as well as cooking.
