Cohen Andrew S. Cohen, age 44, of St. Paul, died unexpectedly on January 27, 2003. Andrew was born March 3, 1958, in Washington, DC. He grew up in Manhattan and attended The Dalton School and various colleges including Hampshire College, the University of Vermont and George Washington University. Andrew moved to Minnesota in 1991 where he met and married Bridget Murphy. Together they had two sons, Oliver, now age 6, and Benjamin, age 5. Andrew worked for the past three years at as a senior computer network engineer. He volunteered many hours of his time for the Minnesota Literacy Council and Alcoholics Anonymous. Andrew loved reading (even while in the shower), long motorcycle trips, talking about and eating great food, East Hampton, Bob Dylan, falling asleep virtually anywhere and being with his family and many friends. But Andrew will be remembered most as a profoundly kind and gentle man who loved his sons above all else. Embodying a unique and wonderful mix of intelligence, curiosity, wry humor, sweetness, and a limitless capacity for unconditional love, Andrew, a man like no other, will be greatly missed.
