Andy C. Morales

He was assigned to the 143rd Sustainment Command (Expeditionary), Orlando, Florida.

Mary, pray for Andy
Andy was the second of five children born to a single mother from Puerto Rico who struggled to keep her family safe and secure in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Family members said that Andy was the warrior of the clan, always fighting to protect his family and work toward their collective success. They also said that he was also the family comic, who made them all laugh. He had a winning smile. His family members consider him a hero and a patriot. 

Andy is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his mother, Carmen Gloria Morales; his wife, Mariela and daughters Naiara and Nyobi, and his 4 siblings.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Andy C. Morales is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
