It is with great sadness I announce the loss of my husband Andrew (Andy) who died peacefully in his home after an extended illness on February 15, 2018. Andy was born on June 25, 1939.
He was the son of Philip John Marino and Annie Marion Dimiceli Marino. He was born and raised in Morgan City, Louisiana. He attended Nicholls State College where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics. He then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Computer Science at the University of Southwest Louisiana. He worked at various United States Air Force Stations around the country with different companies as a Computer Systems Analyst. He proudly served in the United States Air Force Reserve for six years.
He was a Master Carpenter and was a loyal fan of the LSU Tigers and The Saints. He devoted his life to God, his family and country. He made his home in Fort Walton Beach, Florida but his heart was always in Louisiana.
He is survived by his wife Michael Marino of 52 years, son Drew Marino, daughter Angie Marino Morris and her husband Billy Morris, five grandchildren Cody Michael Urenda, Kory Bear Bryant Marino, Collin Nicholas Urenda, Austin Dakota Marino, and Michelle “Mickey” Olexa Marino. He also leaves behind three great-grandchildren, his sister Frances Marino Bonner and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Preceding him in death was his brother Carlo Marino.

I was so very sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Andy. I remember visiting with him several years ago when we had our family reunion here in the Morgan City area. I miss all of my cousins and wish that there were more opportunities to see them. You all will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as you say good bye to your beloved husband, father and grandfather today. Rest in peace my cousin. please bring greetings to all our loved ones who have gone before us when you see them in heaven, your cousin Joe Marino

My deepest sympathy is extended to the family. Andy and I shared first cousins (his mother's sister). Always the same and always a good person.
