Donald Edwin Andrews, 88, passed away on August 21, 2021 in Salem, Oregon. He was born June 27, 1933, in Hood River Oregon. He married Audrey June Shaw on July 1, 1961, in Mill City, Oregon. He grew up in Mosier, Oregon and graduated from Mosier High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Theology from Northwest Christian College in Eugene, Oregon.
In his early career Don was a pastor. After a few years in that field, he took a job as a Vocational Rehabilitation Officer with the State of Oregon. In 1975 this position took him and his family to Salem, Oregon where he resided ever since.
Don was a storyteller. You couldn’t sit down with him that he didn’t tell you a story. From his days growing up in Mosier, his time in college, his days as a father to his girls, or the days he was called “grandpa” and all the time he spent with his grandsons. He loved to tell these stories. During your time spent with him you not only would get to reminisce with Don, you undoubtedly would receive a message or two from the scriptures as well. Ministry was always his passion.
Don is survived by his daughters, Denice Guzman of Salem; and DiAnna Andrews of Des Moines, Iowa; Grandsons Bradley Guzman of Silverton, Oregon and Jered Guzman of Salem. He was proceeded in death by his wife; son, Michael Andrews; mother, Blanche Andrews; and father, Robert (Bob) Andrews.
