It is with sad heart that we learn of the recent passing of Mr. Andrew “Andy” Barnett on October 9th. Andy was frequent visitor to our SDCC meetings and very often the voice of reason regarding issues. Andy was truly a “Good Friend” to his community and neighbors along Shore Drive. May fair winds and following seas be yours Captain Barnett.
