Andy was born at Glens Falls Hospital on January 24th, 1976 to Andrew Mingo Sr, and Barbara Saville.
Andy and his wife Virginia Sharpe-Mingo were high school sweet hearts and married on September 4th, 2005. They went on to have two children; a son Dustin Mingo age 22 born April 1st, 1995 and a daughter Mattison Mingo age 12 born January 10th, 2005.
Andy was employed at Finch Pruyn for much of his life, and then was fortunate enough to do what he loved, which was working in his garage on motorcycles, dirt bikes, and anything else with a motor. Andy had many endearing qualities, but most will remember him for his big heart. He was a loving, devoted father who spent most of his time with his sidekick daughter Matti, and son and best friend Dustin teaching them how to ride motorcyles. He spread his love and passion for motorcycles and dirt bikes to everyone he knew. His children have followed in his footsteps also with a love for two wheels.
He spent much of his time playing with his pitbull Isis (Goddess of Fertility) who unconditionally loved him along with his family.
Andy was predeceased by his maternal grandmother Pauline Shores, maternal grandfather Robert Shores, paternal grandmother Bea Mingo, and nephew Dominique D’Angelico.
Andy is survived by his wife, Virginia Sharpe-Mingo; his son, Dustin Mingo; his daughter, Mattison Mingo; his mother, Barbara Saville (Van Sanborn); his father, Andrew Mingo Sr.; his brother Jason Mingo (Courtney Bollman); his sister, Tiffany (Adam) D’Angelico; as well as many aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins and extended family.
