Robert D. Andrews age 71 of Northwood passed away on Wednesday, January 10, 2024 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio-Perrysburg. Robert was born to Milton and Phoebe (Miller) Andrews Sr. on July 15, 1952 in Toledo, Ohio. He was a 1970 graduate of Clay High School and went on to serve our country in the U.S. Army during Vietnam.
