Robert Earl Andrews, Jr. was born on March 26, 1956 to (the late) Fannie Bell Andrews Toussaint and Robert Earl Andrews, Sr.
Robert was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York’s Red Hook Projects, graduating from Franklin K. Lane High School, and continuing his education at a community college.
Robert was an avid world traveler, making his home in California for a while, but he always came back home to Brooklyn.
Robert was a member of a motorcycle organization which was his passion until he had a serious accident. Once he gave up his bike, he started his career with National Grid where he remained for 30 plus years.
Robert loved his Western movies and the old-time T.V. shows. He wasn’t into sports like his mother who loved basketball – The Knicks being her favorite team.
