Andrew M. Svrcek, Jr., 48, of Wind Gap, PA was called home to be with the Lord on Sunday December 2 after his return of cancer.
Andrew was born on October 21, 1970 in Pottsville to Andrew M. Svrcek, Sr. and Rose Ann (Winter) Svrcek.
He was graduated from Nativity BVM High School, Class of 1988. He was also a proud Veteran of the United States Army.
Andrew loved to entertain. He always said “If you come to my show and leave your troubles and worries behind for a few hours, then I’m doing my job.” And he did that everytime. Some of his greatest accomplishments in his career include a number of first place finishes in Elvis tribute artist contests, singing at the Ryman Auditorium, and performing with Georgette Jones (daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette).
He had a heart of gold, always doing for and thinking about others first. Andrew touched the lives of all that knew him and made their world brighter. He was a true inspiration, a warrior.
Andrew was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Joseph and Isabelle Svrcek and maternal grandfather Joseph Winter.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife Kayla (Maier) Svrcek; step mother Beverly Svrcek; Gary Parkhurst; maternal grandmother Irene Hart; sons Andrew III companion of Kayla and Michael husband of Emily; sister Rose Ann wife of Shawn; and brother Jason husband of Victoria.
