Longtime Truckee/Tahoe resident Andy Hill passed away on March 29 at his Truckee home. Andy had a huge network of friends and loved ones who will miss his special smile and the twinkle in his eyes, which always offered a welcome greeting. He was instrumental in the development of a large spiritual community at For Goodness Sake, the local nondenominational resource center where he was executive director for 12 years. Andy was an avid cyclist and, no doubt, pedaled his way through many local valleys and over many passes, not just in the United States, but internationally as well

Andy was involved in numerous local organizations due to his passion for networking for his community interests, and those involved in the For Goodness Sake community. His name has been well-known to countless nonprofit groups to which he tirelessly gave his time and talents. 

Besides his beloved purple Condor bicycle, for which he was known, he celebrated his life enjoying a wide variety of music. He was a true seeker and loved to share his knowledge with all those who he came in contact with.


There will be a celebration of Andy’s life at the Truckee Community Recreation Center at 2 p.m. on April 13. Feel free to call For Goodness Sake at (530) 550-8981 or check the website at goodnesssake.org for details.
