Andrew Eugene Hadella Jr., age 84 of Warren, died peacefully at home on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 surrounded by his loving family. Andrew was born January 14, 1933 in Hamtramck to the late Andrew Eugene and the late Clara (nee: Malkowski) Hadella.
With thanks and praise from a grateful nation, we pay homage to Andrew for his service to our country as a soldier in the U.S. Army during the Korean War era. Attaining the rank of Private First Class, Andrew answered the call to duty with pride and patriotism and served with valiance and bravery in support of our allies overseas.
One evening, at a local roller rink, a chance encounter with a special girl by the name of Geraldine would ultimately change Andrew's life forever,…but he didn't quite know it at that point. That night would lead to many more like it and would blossom into a lifelong love affair. Their journey as husband & wife began through the vows of love they shared on July 30, 1955 at St. Florian Catholic Church in Hamtramck. The newlyweds chose Detroit as their place to call home.
A few years after their marriage, Detroit was a city that was starting to struggle, so the two decided to relocate and headed north to the new and burgeoning community of Warren. It was at this new home that they would welcome and raise their three children, Deborah, Michael and Michele. Andrew would live in this house for 64 years.
When it came time for a little personal enjoyment, Andrew was quite fond of watching the old war movies on television. Having served in the Army, he was always amazed at how realistic the places he had been were portrayed on the screen. Andrew could also wile away the hours while enjoying one of his favorite hobbies as a coin collector.
Andrew was the devoted husband of the late Geraldine who preceded him in death on September 1, 2016. He was the loving father of Deborah, Michael, and the late Michele; and the cherished grandfather of Milissa, Jennifer, Gary, and great-grandfather of Alannah, Maci, and Brantley.
Visitation for Andrew will take place on Friday, March 3rd from 3-9pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd) in Warren. His Funeral Service will be held Saturday, 11:00 am at the funeral home.
