Andrew (Andy) Zuder Jr., 78, of Berlin, CT, passed away peacefully on December 6, 2022, the same day as his beloved wife Angie, one year apart. He passed in Surprise, AZ with Doree, Sean, Lina, and grand-dog, Dililah, the French Bulldog.
Andy was born on November 21, 1944, in Hartford, CT to the late Andrew and Ann (Segetti) Zuder.
Andy graduated and attended school at Weaver High School in Hartford, CT before moving to Berlin, CT, in 1969 and meeting his late spouse Angie (Balfore) Zuder. They made their home in Berlin, CT and started their family.
Andy was a veteran having served in the U.S. Coast Guard. He retired from Kellogg’s Company as a territory manager. He was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church and the Italian Political Club of Berlin.
Andy was known for his witty sense of humor. He loved to play bocce and travel in his RV. During his many travels, he was able to experience numerous locations and made many friends along the way. He had a great love for the state of Arizona, including the bright sunshine, being outdoors, and seeing the Airforce fighter jets fly over his daughter’s house. He also enjoyed his summer trips down to the beach with his camping family. When not traveling, Andy enjoyed many fantastic meals that his son prepared. It was an annual tradition to have Sunday Supper as a family prepared by Sean. He thoroughly enjoyed being retired and spending time with his wife, family, and friends.
Andy is survived by his children, Doree Saint Onge of El Mirage, AZ, and Sean Zuder of Berlin, CT; grandchildren Lina of El Mirage, AZ and Maisey of Berlin, CT; his beloved dog, Max; and many cousins, nephews, and nieces.
Andy was predeceased by his parents, his two sisters, Barbara and Marjorie, and the love of his life, Angie.
