Mr. Andrew A. Cestaro, age 45, passed away unexpectedly Monday, April 1st, 2019 in Kingsland, Ga.
Mr. Cestaro was born June 1st, 1973 in Saratoga Springs, NY to Andrea Coffey and the late Vincent S. Cestaro of Gansevoort, NY. He graduated from South Glen Falls High School in 1993. Mr. Cestaro was employed by the Bennett Dodge dealership in Kingsland, Ga. as a professional mechanic stating, “It’s the best job I ever had.”
Andrew, aka Andy, Drew, little big brother, McGillicutty, and Oompa Loompa to some kids, always tried to make others smile and laugh. He would do anything he could to help out friends and family. He had a big heart. Andrew also loved to attend Nascar races (#48) with his favorite uncle, and also enjoyed attending the Turkey Run Race in Jacksonville, Fl. with a close friend. He loved to play with the kids out in the yard, hang around a campfire, laugh and tell stories. Hunting in the fall in the Adirondacks, and fishing, on both water and ice, with his closest friends in upstate New York were his hobbies. Andy’s dogs, Missy and Titan, a Staffordshire Pit Bull Terrier and Blue Nose Pit Bull Terrier were his kids. The “kids” loved to go for car rides and to go play Pokémon Go with him. Andrew was known for talking backwards and that damn “meow”.
Mr. Cestaro is survived by his mother, Andrea (John) Coffey of Kingsland, Ga. and his sister, Shawna (Robert) Shad, III and small nephew, Robert Shad, IV of Merritt Island, Fl.; his favorite uncle, Charles (April) Hamilton of Tewksbury, Ma., his uncles, William Hamilton of Clifton Park, NY., James (Thea) Hamilton of Canton, SD., and Thomas (Susan) Hamilton of Aurora, Co.; many cousins from upstate New York, Massachusetts, South Dakota, and Colorado; and many friends from upstate New York, Jacksonville, Fl., and Kingsland, Ga.
