The journey following Eddie’s life was a significant life changer for him and resulted his book Three Fields (brothers) being published in 2012. Included in the book was a short narrative section about the Bradley family and their daughter Kathy, who like Eddie, had a severe level of Down syndrome. In 2022, the indefatigable Kathy Jackson reached out to Andy with the news that new CEO of The Arc of Florida, Alan Abramowitz, was interested in republishing Three Fields (brothers). It was decided to ask Dick Bradley to co-author the new volume and tell his family’s story. The long process of rewriting Three Fields (brothers), now titled Three Fields (A Brother. A Sister.), was very satisfying to Andy and allowed him to work with a team to offer a completer and more interesting story line.
As an avid traveler and sports enthusiast, Andy enjoy long treks in various countries. He currently lives in Bend, Oregon with his wife Julie.
