Andrew Harrison Quintero
1963-May 4, 2014
Redondo Beach, California
Andrew means manly, Harrison means Noble and Princely, and he reflected all of that with his patience, honesty, understanding and endurance.
The Spirit of Andrew, the loving son of Roland and Elisabeth Quintero, was called to heaven on May 4 in Waikiki, Hawaii, while swimming on his back looking at his God's blue sky. He is survived by his loving wife Cristine Wolf of Redondo Beach, California; his father Roland Quintero of Palo Alto; his three older brothers, Roland William Quintero III (Lisa) of Fairfield, California, Robert Anton Quintero of San Jose, and Richard Walter Quintero of Lake Worth, Florida; his niece Jessica Quintero (Michael), her three children Elisabeth, Nikolaus and Joseph; and nephews Robert Quintero and Russell (Sasha); and his many close friends and associates.
He was born in 1963 in Mountain View, California. A member of the St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in his early years, he graduated from Palo Alto High School, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and received his Executive MBA with Summa Cum Laude at the top of his class from Loyola Marymount.
He was also the lead architect of a Space Systems Engineering Database. Earlier in his career Andrew worked for Hughes Space and Communications supporting anomaly and failure investigations. Andrew has published a number of reports and papers on risk assessment and test effectiveness and received numerous awards and honors for his efforts. He was proud to have the patent for a program called Smart Cow, an intelligent search engine.
