Andrew Charles Eller of Gladewater, Texas, passed away on September 12, 2022, at the age of 31. He was born January 24, 1991, in Dallas and grew up in Tyler.

As a young child, Andrew was happy, frequently with laughter, and wrapped in the love and joy of his family. He truly loved listening to music and was calm and attentive when music was playing. Also Christian music. Even with his limitations, he responded to the presence of his twin brother and to conversation from family and close friends. He enjoyed the lights and attractions in his environment.

Throughout his life, he enjoyed the loving attention from his mother, father, close family, friends, teachers, and caregivers at Truman W. Smith Children’s Care Center. He truly was a blessing, and he still will be held closely forever in our hearts.
