Andrew graduated from McEachern High School in Cobb County and studied Culinary Arts at Art Institute of Atlanta. He was considered to be a very talented chef, and worked in some of Atlanta’s most prestigious restaurants during his career. He often reminisced fondly of his time working with world famous Chef Joel Atunes and other industry icons, at some of Atlanta’s finest restaurants like JOEL, Bacchanalia, Veni Vidi Vici, and Restaurant Eugene. His involvement with Atlanta’s culinary industry is too extensive to list, but spanned two decades.
Andrew was also passionate about art, music, and the written word. His talent for poetry was well known, but his artistic abilities were not as widely known. Although he was not a musician, he had a great respect for several local Atlanta musicians, and loved attending their performances.
He is survived by his father and step-mother: Ed and Gail Cline of Florida; step-father: Christopher Howell, of Cincinnati, Ohio; two sisters: Melody Cline of Cincinnati, Ohio and Brandy Cline May of Florida; one brother: Samuel Howell; girlfriend: Keryn Key; as well as multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins.
