Andrew William Cline

On Dec. 16, 2010 we lost our beloved Andrew William Cline in a vehicle accident.

Andy was born on Sept. 24, 1969 in Burien, Wash. to Charles and Mary Cline. Andy and his family moved to Oroville soon there after where he attended Oroville High School with his brothers Charlie and Randy. After high school Andy worked in the local apple sheds and lumber mill until he decided to join the job corps. Once in the job corps he became an journeyman brick layer. Andy then moved back to the Seattle area to apply his new trade. Never being one to settle in one place to long, Andy soon got the itch to travel again and moved back to the Okanogan Valley for a short time. In 1994 Andy decided it was time to finish his education and enrolled in Big Bend University for auto mechanics. After two years of school Andy graduated with a degree in auto mechanics and was soon applying his trade at a car dealership in the Moses Lake area. Andy’s love for the Okanogan Valley soon began to tug at his shirt sleeves and he soon found himself moving back to the area, settling in Omak.

On Sept. 27, 2009 Andy married Diane Bowman and his life long dream of a family of his own was fulfilled. Together with his new wife Diane, Andy’s new family totaled over 15 family members of his own. This included children and grandchildren, something Andy truly cherished and enjoyed.

Andy is survived by his wife, Diane at home; their children: Christine and Shanon, Ryan and Sara, Jeremy and Shannon; grandchildren: Renay, Emily, Bailey, Wyatt and Brooklyn all of the Seattle area. Andy is also survived by his father, Charles Cline; brothers: Charlie and Randy; grand parents, Andy and Mary Rowe; and numerous aunts, uncles, nephews and cousins in the surrounding Okanogan Valley area.

Andy was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Cline; Grandparents: Frank and Catherine Cline and Edna Rowe; and one nephew, Baby Charlie.
