Paul James Andrews


Paul James Andrews  25 July 1942 – 27 March 2021.

March 27, 2021 at 11am was the moment that we said goodbye to the man, we knew as Husband, brother, father, confidant and most importantly friend. Paul will be remembered and missed by friends and family with every crack of a Royal’s bat and every Chief’s touchdown as he was an avid fan and long-time season ticket holder with both the Royals and Chiefs.   

Paul is survived by his loving wife Grace, his sister and brother-in-law Bev and Harley Casper. He will also be remembered by his son Jeff, daughter Cindy Goebel, his two grandchildren Heather and Joshua and five great grandchildren Skyler, Jose, Cecilia, Aliya and Addison.  

Paul was preceded in death by his father Charles and his mother Margret a sister LaVonne and brother Chuck. Paul grew up in Fontana KS, served in the US Army stationed in Germany. After his military service he moved to Kansas City and married Grace Piacenza. Where they started and raised their family in Mission, KS. The majority of Paul’s career was in the financial and insurance sector. He started in Kansas City at the Grain and stock exchange, worked with Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Waddell & Reed, owned Kansas City Policy Analysis and ended his career with Computer Sciences Corporation. Along the way he was a friend and mentor to many wonderful people who will miss him.

    A few holiday seasons past, I was honored to be an invited guest to the home of Paul and Grace on a special night for gathering, Christmas Eve. The event reminded me of the many Christmas times I had experienced years previous with my own personal family, but had ceased to exist for several years just by the nature of times changing. Paul was the quintessential Dad and Grandpa that one could ever know and it was so evident of this through seeing his interactions with his grandchildren on that special night togetherness in giving, and in love of family. I know that Paul also, loved receiving calls from his daughter Cindy during Chiefs season, and so it was, that shortly after that Christmas Eve, (in the beginning of the “dynasty era”) Paul returned a call from Cindy, and the tradition of Father/Daughter football talk commenced once again; a cherished conversation topic, remembered and loved, by both.
    Paul, devoted father, best grandpa, committed to family, so profoundly missed and so eternally loved.
