Andy attended Kindergarten at St. John's and maintained a group of friends from those years his whole life. He graduated from Rice with a BA in 1963, the Univ. of Houston with an MBA in 1973 & a Ph.D in 1967 in Chemical Engineering. In 1969 he married Sue Simpson his lifelong soul-mate and business partner. His business career included stints with Petro-Tex Chemical, Tenneco, General Crude Oil, Horizon Petroleum & Avant Petroleum Co. before starting his own chemical plant, Keeshan & Bost Chemical Co. His career put him at the head of the line in patenting processes for recycling petroleum wastes. One of his favorite statements was that he "did more for the environment in one day than most people got to do in a lifetime". His outside activities included memberships in the St. Lukes Methodist Church, the Forest Club, & Allegro, & he time spent as much time as a busy life allowed reading, hunting and enjoying his large group of friends. Throughout his adult life he became a patron of the Houston Grand Opera, the Houston Museum of Art & the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Those in his circle of friends said that he was generous with his laughs, his time, his wisdom, his support, his love and his friendship. He will be missed greatly by all those whose lives he touched.
