Grado, 30, passed away Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, in Lubbock, Texas.

Interment will take place at South Lawn Cemetery in Tucson, Ariz.

Andy was born April 28, 1988, in Tucson to Manuel and Alma (Maytorena) Grado.

He was a freestyle artist, keyboard player, and life philosopher. Andy enjoyed endless hours of sketching; even a napkin became his canvas. In his earlier years, he was a punk rocker skater kid and later in life began to learn the rancher’s life out in Hope.

He had a heart of gold and a willingness to help anyone and everyone.

Arrangements are under the direction of Terpening & Son Mortuary. Condolences may be expressed online at www.artesiafunerals.com.
