Andrew S. Bene’ passed away June 27, 2017, at Portland Providence Medical Center; he was 47 at the time of his passing.
Andrew was born March 25, 1970, in Terre Haute, Ind., to Steve J. Bene’ and Carolyn Diskin. He grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and moved to Hood River, Ore., in 1984.
Some of his favorite things were his cats, gardening, taking it easy and making life as pleasurable as possible. One of Andrew’s most enduring qualities was his empathy and compassion. He loved contributing to the community and helping young men through their life lessons. He loved movies like “Shawshank Redemption,” and he was a big fan of the Rocky movies. He was a great cook and loved photography.
Andrew is survived by mother Carolyn Krieg, father Steven Bene’, wife Amy Bene’, and two beautiful girls, Kailie and Tatum French, who he missed dearly over the years. He was so looking forward to getting to know them again, and was blessed to have the last two years with his oldest daughter, Kailie. Andrew’s passing came too soon to begin with Miss Tatum.
A private family service was held on July 6 at Idlewilde Cemetery of Hood River.
Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson's Tribute Center (Funerals • Receptions • Cremations), 1401 Belmont Ave., Hood River.
