Tuesday August 23, 2016 MAC Jason Leroy Andrews lost his life to his battle with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). He has joined our Heavenly Father along with his daughter, Madelynn Grace Andrews, who passed 6 years ago at the age of 5 months due to SIDS. Together, we know, they look down and watch over us as pictured above.

Jason is survived by his wife, Rebecca Ann Andrews, from Chesapeake, VA and his 2 children; Teagan Jean 7 years old and Xavier Sherwood 3 years old. Jason’s mother, Pamela Buckey, resides in West Virginia, his father, Danny Andrews in Florida and his sister, Lisa Brewis residing in Maryland.

Jason’s 2nd parents (Rebecca’s father and mother) SMC (Ret) Michael Yarbrough and Caroline Yarbrough from Chesapeake, VA cherished Jason as their own son.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
