Gerald Andrews passed away peacefully with his loving family at his side Saturday, December 1st 2018 at the Waterbury Hospital. He was born on July 13th 1935 in Newfoundland the son of Joseph and Martha Andrews. The family moved from Newfoundland to Detroit, Michigan. As a young man he became a world class cyclist and learned to draw, then soon discovered a love for art and excelled, winning art contests and receiving scholarships from the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts and the School of Art, Brooklyn Museum. While living in Detroit, Gerry met the love of his life Sara Holston and they married October 11th 1958. They moved to NYC where Gerry became an enormously successful freelance artist, Gerry was sought out by Columbia Records and others requesting his art to use for many album covers of musicians, composers and vocalists.
Upon learning that Sara was pregnant with their first child, Miriam, Gerry decided to take an offer from ABC Television Art Department. Gerry worked for ABC television, where he received many awards including two Emmy awards and retired after 40 years. In recent years Gerry and Sara moved to Beacon Falls, Connecticut and quickly settled in. Gerry loved the small town life and made lots of friends around town. Gerry was a 40 plus year member of AA and sponsored and mentored many people. Spirituality was one of his many passions and he loved helping people.
