Andrew Mark Einstein, 18, son of Dan and Liz Einstein and brother of William and Charles, died on December 14, 2008, in Pawling, N.Y.
Andrew's strong character and quiet leadership were surpassed only by his kindness. He demonstrated steadfast loyalty and genuine caring for all of his friends. His tender heart will be missed by many.
Andrew graduated from Greenville High School in 2008 and was a Post Graduate student at Trinity-Pawling School. At Greenville High, he was a Varsity member of the lacrosse and swim teams. He led the 2008 lacrosse team to the SC state championship as the team's Senior Captain and Most Valuable Player.
His love of the outdoors and sports began early in life through trips to both of his grandparents' retreats: the farm and the lake house, where he fished, hunted, swam and laughed. He was an exemplary big brother, role model and swim coach, admired by his young GCC swimmers and fellow coaches alike. Over 10 years with the GCC team, Andrew achieved many highlights, including the Gerard-Ramseur Teamwork Award and the Championship Record in the 50 Freestyle. As a Boy Scout in Troop 19, Andrew achieved Scouting's highest rank of Eagle Scout and earned the Ner Tamid God and Country Award. At Trinity-Pawling, Andrew was a Dorm Proctor and member of the anglers club. He ran Cross Country and, true to his untiring work ethic, finished the 2008 season as the team's fastest member, receiving the team's highest honor: the Annual Award.
Andrew was a member of Temple of Israel, where he learned about his Jewish faith and celebrated many meaningful lifecycle occasions and good times with his basketball team and coaches. Throughout his life, Andrew was touched by many teachers, mentors and coaches, yet always gave back more than he knew.
Surviving family members, in addition to his parents and brothers, are paternal grandparents, Nathan and Sugie Einstein; maternal grandparents, Jim and Frances Ard; great-grandmother, Cyvia Rosenfeld; aunts and uncles, Jim and Carter Ard, Howard and Angi Einstein, Jim and Sandra Joiner, and Randall Einstein; and many additional loving family members and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Greenville High School All-Sports Booster Club, 1 Vardry Street, Greenville, SC 29601 or to the Temple of Israel, 400 Spring Forest Road, Greenville, SC 29615.
A private family Burial Service will be held at the Beth Israel Cemetery. A community Memorial Service will be held at Temple of Israel, 400 Spring Forest Road, Greenville, SC on Thursday, December 18, 2008, at 2 p.m. Members of the Greenville High lacrosse team, past and present, will serve as honorary pall bearers.
