Andrew T. Gomez of Saginaw, Michigan
Beloved father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and friend passed away peacefully with his wife by his side on Tuesday, October 4, 2022. He was 60 years old. Andrew T. Gomez was born on January 17, 1962, in Saginaw, Michigan, to Herman G. and Mary S. (Munguia) Gomez. He was a 1980 graduate of Carrollton High School. While in school, Andrew attended the Saginaw Career Complex (SCC) where he learned welding. Through a friend, Andrew met the love of his life, Tammie Dupuis, in 1984. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on December 14, 1990; she survives him. Andrew was a professional welder his entire life, working for various construction companies over the years. He found peace in being "a spur of the moment" and "adventurous free-spirit". Andrew loved waking up on a Saturday morning and taking day, as well as overnight trips, all over the state with his wife and daughter. He also enjoyed riding his bike throughout the community. A true original, Andrew will forever be remembered for making others laugh, for his ability to communicate with all people, for having a pure and giving heart to those in need, and for truly living a remarkable life filled with many beautiful memories.
Surviving are his wife Tammie Gomez of Saginaw; daughter, Annastasia "AJ" (Jon) Edwards of Saginaw; two grandchildren: Jonathan and Alexandria Edwards of Saginaw; his mother, Mary S. Gomez of Saginaw; brother, Stephen "Steve" Gomez of Lansing. Also surviving are many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and friends.
