Gatzow of Plattsburgh, N.Y.; his mother, Marie E. Cahill; and brother, Edward Cahill of Ridgewood, N.J. He is preceded in death by his father Howard Cahill.
Andrew was a devoted and loving father to McKenna, sharing his love for surfing, skiing, gymnastics and skating with her.
His brilliance led him to a successful career in cardiovascular perfusion where he met Anne at UCLA. Together they shared many rewarding years with a common love for Formula One racing, world travel, and fine foods.
