William Andrew Sechkar (Andy) passed on Friday, May 7, 2021 from complications of cancer.  He is survived by his wife Margaret (Margie).


Margie and Andy met in high school and married two years after graduation, just before he went to Viet Nam.  After he got out, they settled in Lorain where he went to work for U.S. Steel and started to go to college at night on the G.I. Bill.

In 1983 he left the steel industry, or more precisely, the steel industry left him, and he went back to Case Western Reserve University to finish his Masters Degree.  He started working as a Financial Advisor at Prudential Bache and continued working through the successor companies, Wachovia and Wells  Fargo Advisors, until 2013 when he retired after 29 years. 


He is survived by his wife of 55 years and his children and grandchildren, daughter Josie Urig (Todd) and daughters Margaret and Sydney, son Jacob (Liz) and their children Zachary and Cameron. 


A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
