In Memoriam: Andrew Michael Principe
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Andrew Michael Principe, a beloved father, husband, and grandfather. Andrew peacefully left this world on January 11th, 2024, surrounded by his family.
Andy was born to Louis and Gertrude Principe on August 28, 1952, in Brockton, Massachusetts. He graduated from Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA in 1970. He furthered his studies earning an associate’s degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology and a bachelor’s degree from Northeastern University. Professionally, Andy was a long-time employee of Codex and Motorola in Mansfield, MA.
Andy was a devoted husband to the late Elizabeth “Betty” (McLeod) Principe and a loving father to his children, Tom and Katie Principe, and Sarah and Alex Seiler. He took great joy in his role as a grandfather, doting on his three grandchildren, Josh, Nick, and Ben Principe.
He spent 43 years living in Norton, MA, before relocating to Westborough to be closer to his grandchildren.
Andy was a talented artisan, finding fulfillment and creativity in the art of woodworking. His skilled hands created beautiful pieces that will forever stand as a testament to his talent. As a beekeeper, Andy nurtured and cared for his colonies with a gentle touch, reflecting the nurturing spirit he brought to all aspects of his life.
His legacy is not only found in the tangible creations he left behind but also in the memories shared by those who were fortunate enough to know him. Andy’s warmth, wisdom, genuine kindness and sense of humor left an indelible mark on the lives of those around him.
In this time of mourning, we remember Andrew Michael Principe for the love he shared, the lessons he imparted, and the joy he brought to the hearts of his family and friends. May he rest in eternal peace, forever remembered and cherished in our hearts.
