Memorial for Andrew Gomez

Departed on Sep. 3, 2012 and resided in Winsted , CT.


GOMEZ - Andrew Gomez, 58, passed away peacefully on September 3, 2012. He was the beloved husband of Barbara Gomez. Andrew was a lifelong resident of the Winsted-Norfolk area. After earning his degrees from Dean College and American University he returned to Winsted where he established his Allstate Insurance Agency.
Andrew always said that his most rewarding experience in life was raising his two children. In addition to spending time with his family and friends, Andrew had many passions. He loved playing golf with his friends at the Canaan Country Club and the Sunday golf crew. His other passion was Dean College where he served on the Board of Trustees for the past nine years. His faith in God brought him the Gideon's organization where he had been a member for the past 25 years. Andrew had an amazing zest for life and always praised God for his many blessings. Ask anyone who knew him and you will hear tales of Andy's exuberant personality displayed in a number of ways – doing back-flips at the drop of a hat, breaking into an Elvis song whenever or wherever the urge struck, and telling animated stories of his time as the "disco cop" directing traffic on Cape Cod. Andy shared his enthusiasm for sports by devoting countless hours of his time to youth sports programs coaching baseball and basketball in Norfolk, Gilbert football and a summer high school basketball program. In addition to his wife, he leaves behind his daughter, Chelsea Gomez Starkowski, and his son, Ryan Gomez who will proudly continue their father's tradition of serving his customers. He is also survived by his son-in-law Anthony Starkowski, loved-like-a son Nik Karbelnikoff and his granddogs, Bella and Bubba. Additional survivors include his father, David Gomez, Sr.; his siblings, Timothy Gomez, David (Juno) Gomez, Jr., Dennis Gomez, Dwain Gomez, Aaron Gomez, Monica Gomez Chambrello, Greg Gomez, Tammy Gomez; and many loving friends. He was predeceased by his mother Luella Gomez.
A memorial service will be held at 1pm on Saturday, September 8th at the Second Congregational Church in Winsted, CT. There will be no calling hours.
In lieu of flowers, gifts in memory of Andy may be directed to the Andy Gomez '76 Memorial Scholarship Fund at Dean College. Gifts are welcome online at www.dean.edu/give or make checks payable to Dean College and send to the Office of Institutional Advancement, 99 Main Street, Franklin, MA 02038.
