Andrew Theodore Makranczy, 97, passed away peacefully on July 26, 2016. He was born June 1, 1919, in Cleveland, Ohio. He married the love of his life, Mary Tusai in Los Angeles, California on May 19, 1941. They were both proud of their Hungarian heritage.
After contracting Tuberculosis, he spent much of the 1940s as a patient in the Olive View Tuberculosis Sanitarium. After release, he worked hard to regain his strength and take care of his family. He spent most of his productive years as a commercial refrigeration sales engineer.
Retiring in 1982, he and Mary moved to St George, Utah. There he loved music, wood working and gardening, taking special pride in his rose garden.
He is survived by his wife, Mary of St George, Utah, and his son, Theodore Alfred Makranczy of Palmyra, Virginia; three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren and his sister, Gabrielle Von Kahrs of St George, Utah.
