Death of Leo Andron

Our dear brother, Leo Andron, beloved husband of Linda, departed this life after a struggle with Parkinson’s Disease. They had relocated from Wilmington to suburban Austin TX to be close to their children and grandchildren but maintained an associate membership at St. Matthew’s. Leo and Linda were lively participants in the Conversations Sermon Study Group for several years.

Leo’s vocation as a scientist and soldier was very impactful, but his life as a husband, father, grandfather, and dear brother in Christ was much more so.

Rest eternal grant Leo, O Lord, and let Light perpetual shine upon him. Amen.
