Murrell ‘Red’ Stephen Andrews was born July 8, 1935 in Oklahoma
City, Oklahoma to Charles and Lorene (Vannoy) Andrews. On
September 6, 1958 he married Mary Lue Orman in Durant, Oklahoma.
Red passed away October 23, 2020 in Guthrie, Oklahoma at the age
of 85. Red joined the Navy in 1953 and served as an AM2 on board the
USS Pine Island AV-12. He was honorably discharged in 1957.
After his service he worked in the oil field and also as a water
well driller. He was also a member of the Masonic Lodge for many
years.Red was a man of few words and even fewer hobbies. His favorite
hobby was sleeping through the news. He was a care giver by
nature, spending over a decade caring for his elderly mother.
Then became caretaker for his wife, Lue, more recently. He was
so appreciative of other’s kindness, always so polite and never
ever complained. He was a complicated, strong, hardworking man
that we will miss so dearly.
Survivors include three children: Robbie Foster and husband
Steve, Steve Andrews and wife Vicki, Michael Andrews and wife
Ginny all of Cashion; seven grandchildren: Caitlin Lee and
husband Edwin, Skyler Foster and wife Amber, Crystal Kelley,
Rachel Brandt and husband Travis, Elizabeth Andrews, Dillon
Andrews and Dalton Andrews; ten great grandchildren: Gibson,
Daxton, Allyson, Tucker, Devin, Ivy, Cameron, Cooper, Bandit,
and Iris; a host of nieces and nephews.
