The world recently lost a wonderful man. Andrew Herres was a man of all occasions, loved by all.
Andrew grew up in Pomeroy and married there. He lived most of his adult life in western Washington State. He was an All-Star basketball player at Pomeroy High School and played college ball at LCSC in the 1970’s. He loved to golf. He was always game for a new adventure. He and his wife Susan travelled the world and most recently started traveling the American west by RV. Andrew was a teacher and coach for 41 years and everybody loved Mr. Herres. He had a great sense of humor and spoke fluent “Duck”. Andrew listened to people and was always supportive. He was a humble man, putting other people first. To be loved by this man in any way was a great honor. The best way to pay tribute to his memory would be to live your life well.
Andrew and his wife had just retired and are building their dream home in Wilder, Idaho by the Snake River next to a golf course. He loved being in Treasure Valley and has greatly enjoyed his new friendships.
At 66 years young with no warning sign, he was taken from us suddenly. He is survived by his wife and partner of 16 years along with his brother and sisters, children (AJ Herres, Todd Herres, Kaisee Herres, Kelsey Wright and his step-sons John, Michael and Gregory Genoni) and grandchildren.
