Robert Andrew Comeaux, known as Andy, passed away on March 20, 2015, at the age of 33 due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Andy was born on September 16, 1981, and was the oldest son of Robert and Debra Comeaux. An avid Longhorn fan, Andy graduated from his beloved burnt orange nation, the University of Texas at Austin, in 2004. Together since they were teenagers, Andy married the love of his life, Monica, in 2005 and set the mold for many of his friends on how to be the perfect husband. He was an ardent supporter of his wife and the loudest cheerleader while lining the roadways during her marathon adventures over the years. She, in turn, was his biggest supporter while helping him raise money for runs and walks to benefit research efforts for CF. Despite his CF diagnosis, Andy lived life to the fullest and didn’t let his sickness keep him from playing softball and attending the multitude of exercise classes Monica taught. Never one to sit still, Andy loved traveling with his best friend and wife to new locations, including to both Disneyland and Disney World, Destin, Mexico, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Denver, San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, New York, Saint Croix, Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago, Seattle and Mrytle Beach, to name a few. Andy realized his dream of becoming a father when he and Monica adopted their daughter, Lexie, in 2013. Andy relished this new role and was proud to be the father of a beautiful young girl. The addition of Lexie completed Andy’s family life, making him the luckiest guy in the world. Andy was known as a true sports fan and was in regular attendance at Houston Texans home games. And, through thick and thin, Andy was also an ardent supporter of his hometown team, the Houston Astros. He shared his passion for sports with his brother, Alex, as they watched games together, compared notes on different teams and attended as many games together as possible. With his quick wit and sharp-as-a-tack sense of humor, Andy was always known for making people laugh, all while doing it with a straight face.
Andy worked at Dominion Steel Specialties, Inc., for the last 10 years and was dedicated to his role in his family’s business. As the company’s Vice President, Andy was highly-regarded by his coworkers, customers and business associates both nationally and internationally.
Andy is survived by his loving wife and beautiful daughter, Monica and Lexie, his parents, Robert and Debra, and his brother, Alex, and his wife’s family, father-in-law Felix S. Flores, mother-in-law Velma Flores, and brother-in-law Felix M. Flores. He is also survived by his extended family, including his grandfather, Robert Comeaux, Sr., and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
