David L. Andreas

Andreas, David L. March 1, 1949 - January 15, 2019 A man of enormous intellect and an even more enormous heart died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in Islamorada, Florida. Beloved husband of almost 34 years of Debbie, devoted father of Genevieve and Jacob (Sadie), and delighted grandfather of Lena, he leaves an unimaginable void for his family, his many friends, his communities in both Florida and Minnesota, and the many charitable causes he sustained with immense generosity. Born to Lowell Willard and Nadine (Hamilton) Andreas, David grew up in Mankato. He graduated from Lake Forest Academy, earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of Denver, and a master of arts in anthropology from what was then called Mankato State University. He served in the U.S. Army from 1971-1973 and then built a career in the banking industry first at the United California Bank in Los Angeles and then at National City Bank in Minneapolis, where he began as a commercial loan officer in 1977 and retired in 2001 as chairman and CEO of National City Bancorp. He was a man of wide-ranging intellectual curiosity and extraordinarily generous spirit, and he served with distinction on numerous boards including the Minnesota Center for Victims of Torture, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Child-ren's HeartLink, Marshall & Ilsley Corporation, the Center for Ethical Business Cultures, Minnesota State University, the Mankato College Business Advisory Council, and Breck School. Cherishing the memory of a light dimmed far too soon are nieces and nephews who adored him and friends who knew they could count on him for help whenever they needed it, thoughtful advice, and the occasional bad joke. He was quick to laugh and sometimes to cry, and those fortunate enough to know and love him could never doubt that he loved them in return. Along with his active mind, David had seemingly boundless energy for physical activity. He relished his annual heli-skiing adventures in the Canadian Rockies, cross-country motorcycle trips with the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America, and boating in Florida. Above all, he had a keen sense of fairness, and he was a steadfast supporter of many causes that promoted educational equity, opportunity, and justice. He had a smile that could (and often did) light up a room, and he would want us all to remember him by doing something kind for others and making sure the people we care about know that we love them something he never failed to do for those lucky enough to be loved by him. In honor of a man who made the world a better place, memorials can be directed to any organization whose mission helps make that possible. One that was particularly close to David's heart was the Victory Junction Camp in Randle-man, NC, which helped children with serious medical conditions. Memorial service arrangements are pending.
