Andrew was born September 3, 1936 in Shiloh, Texas to Andrew Cessel and Viola Frances (Sterling) Fleming. He has been a resident of the Shiloh and Point Enterprise area for his entire life. At the young age of 11, he learned to operate heavy equipment (dozers, etc.) and the meaning of hard work. This knowledge, along with being raised in the country, was very beneficial as he used it throughout his working career. Andrew managed the Riddle Ranch in Shiloh for several years, worked for John Deere in Groesbeck, Fred Owens Contracting in Teague, nine years for the City of Mexia, and worked several years as Maintenance Foreman for Point Enterprise Water Supply. He also served his country in the Texas National Guard.
There was nothing more important to Andrew than his family and he was willing to do whatever was necessary to provide for them. He was a country boy with a “Big Heart” and his actions spoke volumes. Andrew made a hard decision, an easy decision, he made the decision to take in three kids at an age that most are thinking of retirement. He knew that by doing so, he wasn’t going to retire, but do the only thing he knew and that was “work his butt off ‘til the end”.
Andrew enjoyed playing the drums with country and western groups, living in the country, raising/riding horses, and attending his kids and grandkids activities.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and Viola Fleming; and three sisters.
Andrew is survived by his wife of 59 years, Anita Fleming of Point Enterprise; daughters, Jaquita Fleming of Waco and Soncharae Lott and husband, Allen of Streetman; sons, Bryan Fleming and wife, Tiffany of Riesel and Ryan Fleming and Kalyn of Mexia; stepsons, Micky Van Winkle and wife, Dayde and Ricky Van Winkle and wife, Barbara all of Point Enterprise; and grandchildren, Cayden Rojas Lott, Bralee Lott, Lane Fleming, Lynlee Fleming, and Adalee Fleming.
