Andrew Andron, Archon, AHEPAN, U.S. Air Force Vet, Is Mourned


It was with profound sadness that the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St. Paul family in Hempstead along with AHEPA Chapter No.170 and the Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate said goodbye to Andrew C. Andron, 91, of Garden City, NY, passed into eternal rest on May 26.

His funeral was held on June 4 at his beloved Cathedral followed by the committal service and burial at Pinelawn Memorial Park in Farmingdale, NY.

Andrew C. Andron was born on September 30, 1932 in Jamaica, NY, to Christos and Anna Andronikou. He served his country proudly in the United States Air Force and studied at the City University of New York. With his accounting background and an interest in real estate, he founded Andron Real Estate in the late 1960s and built a successful career based on honesty and hard work. He was a Zone Chairman for the Long Island Board of Realtors, an Advisory Board member of the State Bank of Long Island and President of the New Hyde Park Lions Club.

Andron joined Saint Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church with his wife Maria and devoted over 50 years of his life to service there. He was a Parish Council member, Parish Council President, Chapter President of AHEPA, member of LIACA, member of the Mr. & Mrs. Club, and supported many organizations at the church, as well as chairing the annual Greek Festival many times. He was a proud member of the Parish Council when the church became the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Paul.

He was very proud and honored to become an Archon [Depoutatos] of the Ecumenical Patriarchate as well as a member of Leadership 100. He loved traveling with his wife Maria, enjoying the company of family and close friends, and spending the winter months in Palm Beach, Florida.

Andron is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Maria, his loving children Anna and her partner Christopher, and Christopher and his wife Florence, and his adoring grandchildren, Andrew, Kristen, and Alexa.

“On behalf of our AHEPA family of Hempstead, our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Andron Family as they mourn the loss of AHEPA Constantine Cassis Chapter No.170 Past President Brother Andrew Andron. Andrew was a great supporter of our AHEPA 170, Hellenism and Education, a great core belief in family, friends and his positive attitude toward life and church”, AHEPA Chapter No.170’s President Anastasi Stampolis said in a statement announcing the sad news.

“He served as past President of AHEPA Chapter No.170 from 1985-1986 and also a Past President of our beloved Cathedral of Saint Paul from 1991-1992,” “He exemplified volunteering his time, talent and treasure in our community. He was a current member of our AHEPA 170 chapter. May his memory be eternal!”

The Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate expressed their deep sympathy to Andron’s wife, Maria, and their entire family “with abiding faith in our Lord and Savior and with hope in His resurrection”!
