Harley E. "Corky" Andrews

May 20, 1951 ~ November 29, 2017 (age 66)

Harley E. "Corky" Andrews, Jr., 66, residing in South Bend, passed away at 4:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at Hospice House, South Bend.

He was born May 20, 1951 in Mishawaka, the son of Harley E. & Martha Faye (Ford) Andrews, and has lived in this community all of his life. He was a 1969 graduate of Washington High School.

Corky's life was music. He played  guitar and was singer with the band MGB for nearly thirty years, and had his own recording studio.  He enjoyed collecting Beatles memorabilia, attending concerts, and traveled on three Moody Blues cruises, one of which had 13 different rock bands.  Corky was a very kind and gentle man, and was always very supportive of his friends.  He was a great all-round fix-it-man.

He is survived by his mother, Martha Faye Andrews of Mishawaka; his son, Zachary White of Plymouth, IN; three grandchildren, Dylan McDaniel, Kaley Mihail, and Rosalynn White, a great grandchild, Ryley McDaniel, and his sister and brother-in-law, Francile & Mike Switalski of Mishawaka.  He was preceded in death by his father, Harley Andrew Sr., and his biological daughter Bridget Olmstead who passed away on October 4, 2017.

The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to his caregiver Denise Fisher, and to Hospice and Beacon Home Care for the excellent care they gave to Corky.
