Henry Raymond Andrews
Jun 03, 1939 - Jun 23, 2016
Henry Raymond Andrews, Jr., of Pfafftown, N.C., went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, June 23, 2016 following a brief illness. Mr. Andrews was born in Carrboro, N.C. on June 3, 1939 to the late Henry “Raymond” Andrews and Clara Dell Hackney Andrews.
Having graduated from Chapel Hill High School with the class of 1957, Mr. Andrews was a long-time resident of Orange County. As a teenager he worked at Fowler’s Food Store, Colonial Drugstore, and UNC-Chapel Hill. He later attended High Point University, where he was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and a founding member of “The Garnets”, a 50’s vocal group. Mr. Andrews graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1962 with a degree in Psychology and shortly thereafter, began his career with Frozen Food Portion Pack and later Integon Insurance Company. Although he spent the majority of his years working in the banking industry, retiring from Village Bank in 1999, he was also the manager of “The Yogurt Barn”, the first soft-frozen yogurt store in the Southeast, for several years. Prior to leaving Chapel Hill, Mr. Andrews was a member of University United Methodist Church, the Sunshine Rotary Club, and served on the Board of Directors for The ArtsCenter in Carrboro.
Mr. Andrews will long be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor and for being a die-hard Tarheel fan. A member of the Rams Club, pulling for the “Heels” was his true passion. In more recent years, he also enjoyed spending time at Emerald Isle, N.C., in the home he named “Shack-a-lack”, attending his annual PIKA reunions, singing in the choir at Elm Grove United Methodist Church, caring for the birds at “Rosewood Farm”, telling stories from his youth, and seeking out a “good buffet”.
A devoted family man, Mr. Andrews was married for 55 years to the love of his life, Glenda Sprinkle Andrews. In addition to his wife, he is survived by their two daughters, Maria Andrews Logan and her husband, Mark, of Hickory, N.C. and Kelly Andrews Upshaw of Dunwoody, GA. Also left to cherish his memory are his five grandchildren, who affectionately called him “Grand-Poo”, Grant and Jackson Logan of Hickory, N.C. and Bronte, Joseph, and Amelia Upshaw of Dunwoody, GA.. He is survived by his sister, Anzenette Jenkins, and brother, Kearney Andrews, both of Pittsboro, N.C., as well as three nephews and five nieces. Along with his parents, an infant daughter preceded him in death.
His family will receive friends from 1:00-2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29th at Salem Funeral Home on 120 S. Main St. in Winston Salem, with the Celebration of Life Service to immediately follow at 2:00 p.m.. A graveside service will be held at Elm Grove United Methodist Church at 7240 Reynolda Rd., Pfafftown. The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory be made to American Heart Association, Elm Grove United Methodist Church, or Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.

Sending sincere condolences to the family and dear friends of Mr. Andrews. I am terribly sorry to hear of his passing. Dealing with the death of a loved one can be quite hard. What helped me when dealing with the death of my loved one was that of relying on the God of all comfort. That undoubtedly was the main thing that got me through such a difficult time, and I'm sure it can help you as well. God never wants to see us suffer, and for this reason, 1 Peter 5:7 states, "Throw ALL your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." Allow God to bear ALL of your pain and heartache. A loving hope that our Heavenly Father has given us is that of a earthly resurrection in the near future. (Acts 24:15) So may that hope be what gives you a measure of solace right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. With much love, Carmen Sheffield.

Glenda, Maria, Kelly, and family, It is with a saddened heart that I wish you peace, love, happiness and God's love upon hearing of Henry's "Porky's" passing. I can honestly, saying, that knowing Porky was one of the highlights of my, now, Eighty years of life. Of course, being members of the Garnets was the major part of that. As I get older and older, I reminisce more and more of the great times we had as young men. I know the great happy memories you will always have of Henry will be precious ones. When we ever Google "happy memories" Porky Andrews will pop-up to remind us of happy memories. Love and Blessings to you, L. M. Wood, A "Garnet" forever.

Glenda, Maria, Kelly, and family, I was stunned when I got a call telling me about Henry. I could be having a bad day and go to choir and there would be Henry and the next thing I new I would be laughing. We would always kid him and Ferrell about going to "Bermuda" while at Choir. It seemed he would come in with a different Carolina hat and I'd kid him: "is this mine" I would ask. One day he surprised me and gave me one. I have and will continue to cherish that hat. John Matthew will always cherish the Carolina Basketball Henry and you gave him too. Choir will be a little different now, however; I know that Henry will be looking on us and urging us on. As he would say when he would start to tear up "it's time to tune up". So Henry we will tune up just for you. I will miss my Carolina Buddy. Glenda you and everyone are in our thoughts and prayers. My God surround you all in his loving, merciful, comforting arms today and the days to come.

Kelly you and your family are in my prayers. Be CONFIDENT in knowing that: "Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord." ~2 Corinthians 5:8 (NLT) Love you my friend!
