Andrew “Andy” Lusk








Andrew Jon Lusk, was born on a cold day on January 8th, 1977 in Jackson, MN. The first born of Larye and Kay Lusk. He spent the first 14 years of his life playing ice hockey, snowmobiling on the river, soap box derby racing down the hills of Jackson, playing football in the front yard, fishing at Clear Lake on the pontoon boat, and stock/sprint car races at the Jackson VFW Speedway. One of his favorite times was racing go-karts with his family on Sundays at Roemer’s shop. Andy enjoyed going to Grandma Bonnie’s Dairy Queen making his own sundae in his mini baseball helmets.

At age 14 he moved with his family to Boise, ID and attended North Junior High Middle School. Andy joined the football team and signed up for a ski trip at Bogus Basin without knowing any friends or knowing how to ski. He also attempted to pierce his own ear with an ice cube, a baby potato and one of Mom’s earrings. From the 20-student classroom in Jackson to the 100 classmates in Boise, ID this was quite the culture shock for Andy.

After 11 months in Boise, ID, the family moved to Kennewick, WA where he was a student at Desert Hills Middle School playing football, basketball and baseball. He then attended Kamiakin High School where he was on the football, basketball, baseball teams and played the trumpet in the marching band. Andy loved his little red Nissan truck with a baseball gearshift.

In 1995, he graduated from Kamiakin High School and enrolled at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA. There he became the President of Alpha Kappa Psi Business fraternity and met the love of his life, Jessica Kinzig. It was in the mountains around Ellensburg where Andy continued his love for hunting and fishing along with establishing friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

In 2000, Andy and Jessica moved to Seattle, WA and tied the knot August 28th, 2004. Together in Bothell, WA, they had two children, Lauren and Colten. Andy loved watching young Lauren perform in her dance recitals and baby Colten experiencing all his “firsts”. Andy and Jessica enjoyed spending time at their local hangout, Pounders and playing Texas Holdem with their college best friends. Andy loved to try new hobbies and interests. He helped make the first batch of whiskey at Woodinville Whiskey Company with his best friends Brett and Orlin, and he participated in handgun shooting competitions. He also enjoyed big game hunting in Montana with friends and his first trip to Disneyland with family. Andy loved to fish in the Puget Sound in his 14 ft aluminum boat which was named Sweet Ass, only to be surprised by a horn from a cruise ship running up his ass.

In 2014, Andy moved his family of 4 to Kennewick, WA where he spent 9 years working in Sales at Builder’s FirstSource. Some of Andy’s proudest moments were his successful moose (Rico) hunt in Spokane, go-kart racing with his Brother Tony and friend Paul, walleye fishing on the Columbia River and completion of his shop. Andy was passionate about giving back to the community. He was instrumental in forming the Columbia River Walleye Angler Association which hosted competitive fishing tournaments throughout the Northwest. Andy then concentrated his efforts to Richland National Little League as the tournament director. He was always the first to volunteer for field prep, cleanup, assistant coaching and last but not least, GameChanger.

Andy had many titles in life, but his favorite role was being a father. He loved nothing more than spending time with his children. He was always there for them, whether he was helping Lauren prepare for an audition or cheering Colten on at his baseball games. Andy’s face would light up watching Lauren perform on stage and Colten pitching on the mound.

Andy is survived by his wife of 19 years, Jessica Lusk and their two children, Lauren & Colten. His parents Larye and Kay Lusk. Brother, Tony (Nicole) Lusk. Sister, Kelsey (Steve) Marquardt. Nieces and nephews, Avery and Ethan Lusk; Mackenzie and Madison Marquardt.

Andy is preceded in death by Grandparents Ken and Betty Webster, George and Bonnie Lusk and Aunt Karen Voss.

The celebration of life for Andy Lusk will be held on Saturday, August 19, 2023, at 4:00 PM at the Sunset Gardens Event Center. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Andy’s family.

  • Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Unfortunately, Duane and I just lost a son a month ago. He was 37 years old. I’d like to tell you it gets easier but will have to let you know when that happens. Will keep you in our thoughts and prayers, always . We’ve always known heaven is a beautiful place and it’s just got a little more beautiful with Andy’s soul. He was welcomed with the biggest hug ever. His grandma Bonnie gave the best hugs.

  • Lusks, gosh where do you start with your family?! I have been so fortunate to know you all for so many years. You are a special group of the “good ones”. Doesn’t matter how many years go by being around you all always feels good. Although I didn’t know Andy as well, I know from reading the outpouring of love on social media he is exactly like the rest of the Lusks I know so well that make everyone feel loved, supported and celebrated.
    Thinking about you all during this rough time and know that I am always a phone call or text away to do anything for any of you.
