Andrew “Andy” England, 65, of Brainerd, passed away at his home Monday, March 28, 2022.
Andy was born August 18, 1956, to Lloyd B. and Clarene M. (Hayertz) England. He grew up in the Brainerd Area and graduated from Brainerd High School where he excelled at wrestling. He operated his own painting company for many years. Andy was a true horseman and enjoyed showing quarter horses. For several years, he belonged to the Double S Saddle Club. When he wasn’t working with his horses, he rode a tangerine orange Harley and more recently, a dune buggy. He appreciated nature and was either feeding the deer and birds on his land or watching them.
Most of all, Andy loved his family. He and his wife, Carol spent 44 years together. His grandchildren lit up his life and he was always there to help clean out the gutters or hang Christmas lights. They will all miss just hanging out with Papa.
He is survived by his wife, Carol (Wilkins); daughters, Julia (Rodney Wallace) Zapata and Amie (Shawn Fletcher) Fenn; grandchildren, Alisha (Tommy) Austin, Amy (Rob Hallquist) Fix, and Drue Fletcher; and great-grandchildren, Delilah Hamline, Tommy Austin, Celeste Hallquist, and Felix Hallquist.
He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Jayme.
A private family service is planned for a later date.
