Death: Jul. 24, 2006
South Carolina, USA

Found online, Princeton Alumni Weekly, published in the October 25, 2006 issue, Dwight Finch Andrews '34: Dwight "Spike" Andrews died July 24, 2006. He was a devoted Princetonian and enthusiastic class member who had a varied business career until he settled on real estate in Florida and then in South Carolina, where he was associated with the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). During WW II, Dwight served "three uneventful years," in his words, in the Navy, where he became a lieutenant commander. For the past several years he lived in Columbia, S.C., where he was a member of Trinity Cathedral, the Cotillion Club, and the Pine Tree Hunt Club. Columbia was the hometown of Spike's beloved wife, Nina Geddes Andrews, who died in 1997. "Our marriage," he once wrote a classmate, "was the one thing I have done right in my life." Surviving are a son, Dwight Finch Jr., and his wife, Judith; two daughters, Nina Ratrie Peyton and her husband, Angus E. Peyton '48, and Anna Andrews Haltiwanger and her husband, J. William Haltiwanger; and five grandchildren.

Part of his obituary found in The State 26 July 2006: Mr. Andrews, husband of 58 years to the late Nina Geddes Nelson Andrews...born in Clarion, PA, he was a son of the late Edwin Eads Andrews and Anna Evelyn Finch Andrews. He was a graduate of Woodberry Forest School and Princeton University, where he was a member of Cottage Club and a champion boxer...he was predeceased by two brothers, Charles Bruce Andrews and Edwin Eads Andrews.
