Obituary for Andrew Walter Guzzi

Andrew Walter Guzzi, a popular member of Pittsburgh’s young professionals’ scene whose favorite saying was “life is short – live it,” died early Sunday, November 11, 2012, from injuries he sustained in an accidental fall. He was 25.

Andrew, of Upper St. Clair and Dormont, will be remembered by family, friends, and colleagues as a man with a zest for life and an ebullient personality who worked hard and who was passionate about Pittsburgh and all that it has to offer, from its trendy restaurants and clubs to its historic sports teams.

Among Pittsburgh’s crowd of twenty-something movers and shakers, Andrew was known for his quirky glasses, trim goatee, offbeat sense of style and positive attitude. He drew people to him with his energy and sense of fun; he was ideally suited to a career in sales and marketing which he pursued with intensity.

“I love my friends and family, and I try everyday to make someone else’s day,” he once said in a moment of self-reflection.

Andrew was a Sales Executive and Verification Officer with Global Vacation Network. He previously held sales positions with the Home Depot Corporate and Davison Design and Development as Director of New Products. He began his professional career following an internship at Micronic North America, LLC.

After graduating from Upper St. Clair High School in 2005, Andrew went on to earn degrees in psychology and business from Washington & Jefferson College where in addition to his studies, he worked as a technician on the IT HELP Desk and earned a reputation as a campus leader.

He was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity and served as a member of the recruiting committee and representative to the Interfraternity Council. In addition, he was a member of the Student Activities Board and a saxophonist in the Jazz Band. He also was a founding member of Hometown Heritage House, a collegiate philanthropy which supports Special Olympics, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and other social service organizations in Washington County.

In addition to a wide circle of friends, Andrew is survived by his parents, Kimberly (Feltz) and Anthony Guzzi, of Upper St. Clair; a sister, Katherine, at home; his maternal grandparents, Walter and Carol Feltz, of Mt. Lebanon; his paternal grandparents, Lois Guzzi and the late Dominic Guzzi, of Charleroi, an aunt, Nora Guzzi Gibson, and her husband, Robert, of Belle Vernon, and a cousin, Kara Gibson, at home.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday from 6-9 p.m. and Thursday from 1-8 p.m. at Beinhauer Funeral Home, 2828 Washington Road, McMurray (724-941-3211). Services will be held on Friday at 3 p.m. in Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2040 Washington Road (Route 19), Upper St. Clair. Everyone Please Meet At Church. Burial will be private.

Andrew did many volunteer hours with Animal Friends Pet Assisted Therapy. Memorial contributions in memory of Andrew may be made to Animal Friends of Pittsburgh, 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237. Please add tributes at beinhauer.com
