Fred “Freddie" Andrews, 87, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, passed away on July 5th 2020. Fred was born in Sandersville, Georgia on June 20, 1933. He moved with family to Canton, Ohio and attended Canton McKinley High School and Capital University. Fred retired from the United States Air Force and the Auditor’s Office for the State of Ohio. In his downtime, he enjoyed sports and beating his record on Spider Solitaire. During the week, he could be found as a regular at Golden Coral, cracking jokes and keeping the staff on their toes.
