About Andy Frye
Andy went Paddle Surfing early morning on Christmas Eve. At about 10:30am a call was made to 911 about his board being washed to shore without him. The search started immediately to find him and friends started walking the beach and manning the pier in hopes of bringing Andy home. On day 3 the search began again at 6:30am and everyone was in place walking the beach and manning the pier. Just minutes before 9am we received the call that Andy had been found. His body had washed ashore approx. 1 mile West from where he was last seen. Andy is survived by his wife, Wendy, and three children, Josh 22, Courtney 19, and Aiden 9, and will sadly be missed by his family and friends.
