Andrew W. Bsharah, age 67, formerly of Kentwood, MI, was called Home to be with his heavenly family at his home in Evart, MI on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 (his favorite day of the year, Opening Day of gun deer season). Andy was a loving, devoted and outstanding husband, father, and grandfather. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke everyone listened. He could fix anything and everything and always gave the best advice. He was the strongest and hardest working man who made many sacrifices for the good of his family. He was a successful and honest business owner of A.J.’s Auto LLC and was well known for helping anyone who needed it. He loved spending time outdoors, specifically hunting, fishing and riding his tractors on his back 40. He will be missed tremendously, but never forgotten. Go Blue!

He was preceded in death by his parents, Rizk (Marilyn) Bsharah; brother, Tom Bsharah; sister-in-law, Karen Henning; and his companion, Penni Girl (woof). Lovingly remembering Andy is the love of his life and wife of 37 years, Barb; sons, Tim Rogers, Erik Rose, Craig (Chasta) Rose, A.J. (Beth) Bsharah, Joel (Jesikah) Bsharah; grandchildren, Ashleigh, Celeste, Colt, Zoey, Avery; great grandson, TeoFilo; siblings, Robin (Jim) Miller, Rick (Lori Swanson) Bsharah, Jane (Stuart) Forth, Mary (Eric) Brown, Holly Littell, Paul Bsharah; brothers and sisters-in-law, Will (Winnie) Ermel, Steve (Ann) Henning, Jack Henning, Sue (Roger) Mellema, Carol (Andy Kozal) Brown, Mary Pirkola; many nieces and nephews. The family is looking forward to greeting relatives and friends on Friday, November 18, from 5 to 8 PM; also, prior to the service on Saturday, November 19, from 11 AM to 1 PM at Stroo Funeral Home.  The funeral service will be held on November 19, at 1 PM at Stroo Funeral Home, 1095 68th St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49508.  Interment will be at Cherry Valley Cemetery in Evart, MI on November 25 at 2 PM.
