It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a beloved father, son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle and friend. Andrew Reichow passed away on July 23, 2021 at the Logan Health Center in Kalispell, MT. Andy was born on June 21, 1979 in Hillsboro, Oregon. In 1990, Andy moved to Colorado where he graduated from Arvada West High School in 1998. Andy also attended college at the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Montana where he majored in Health and Exercise Science. In 1999, Andy married Jennifer (Brower) Reichow and the raised three beautiful children.
Andy was always on the move and loved skiing, bicycling (road & mountain) and hiking. He also played tennis and football at Arvada West High School. One of the highlights of Andy’s youth was serving as a ball boy for the Minnesota Vikings. Andy worked in the medical field in Colorado, Iowa and Montana in neurodiagnostics and sleep medicine. Andy is survived by his parents Denise Purdy-Patrick and Terry Patrick; his grandparents Jerry and Carolyn Reichow; his children Jacob, Caleb and Ellie; his siblings Jamie Caruso (Jared), Josh Patrick (Nadia), Tyler Patrick (Megan) and Callie Blaz (Teagen). He also leaves behind an entire fan club of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews. We will all miss that smile on Andy’s face and that twinkle in his eyes.
