Andrew “Andy” J. Monari, age 48, of Couderay, WI went quietly into the arms of our Lord on February 22, 2020.
Andrew Joseph Monari was born on July 26, 1971 to Joseph and Janet Monari in Peoria, IL. They lived in Peoria before moving to Janesville, WI. While living in Janesville, Andy met Amy M. Graves whom he married on June 26, 2004 in Wisconsin Dells, WI. He worked for J.P. Cullen in Janesville, WI from 2006-2015. His impressive work ethic brought him success in his field. After moving to the Hayward, WI area, Andy cultivated wonderful client and employee relationships through leading Hayward Concrete, a division of Hill Construction.
Andy enjoyed ATV rides with his wife and friends, fixing or building things around the house (which is how he got his nickname “Handy Andy”), watching the Blackhawks play hockey, and his job. Andy was known his entire life for causing a little trouble and his fun sense of humor, but also for his strong commitment to his family, friends and work. Andy had a giving heart, always making time for the people and things he cared about - even for his deer friend Bucky. Andy was dedicated to everything he put his hands on.
Andy is a beloved son, husband and dad. He took pride in his daughter and supported her on every decision she made. He is admired and loved by so many.
Andy is survived by his wife, Amy Monari; parents Joseph and Janet Monari; daughter Emily Viles-Monari and son-in-law Max Olin; parents-in-law Sharyn and Robert Graves; along with many other relatives and friends. Andy was preceded in death by his grandparents and nephew Nik Graves.

A mass of christian burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 29th, at St. Philip’s Catholic Church in Stone Lake, WI with Father Gregory Hopefl officiating.
