Andy and I were in the same platoon during Basic Training at Fort Ord CA in 1953. We bowled one day, and he beat me easily. He was undoubtedly taking it easy on me, and I had no idea how good a bowler he actually was. Andy was a class act, and will be greatly missed.
I never met Andy Marzich in person, but I did have contact with him. In 1991 I wrote a Bowlers Journal article about 10 neglected people who should be in the ABC Hall of Fame. Andy was one of them. When he was elected the next year, he sent me a note to thank me for helping him get elected. He didn’t have to do that–and I’ve always appreciated his gesture.
