Andy Jacob Stroud was born December 29, 1982 in Hamburg, Iowa to Steven Stroud and Melissa (Scroggs) Stroud. On May 5, 2007, Andy married his childhood sweetheart Shala Williams and on February 15, 2011 they were blessed with a baby girl, Alyse Jordyn and are expecting their second daughter in December.

Andy enjoyed life to the fullest which always included spending lots of time with his daughter Alyse and wife Shala, brother Joshua and many nights in James and Pam’s garage.

Andy loved fast hot trucks and cars with shinny buttons and loud music. He was a fantastic cook and no one ever left hungry or thirsty. Many nights were spent huddled on the couch with Bubba (Alyse) watching movies, TV (Ninja Turtles) and playing games on his phone, even playing dress up. Andy was an incredible father, Alyse was his pride and joy; he once posted on facebook “God, I love this child”. Nights also included mowing the yard, doing laundry and cleaning house and working on cars with Josh.

Andy gave us all so much, his love, friendship, guidance and was known to be a “partner in crime” to some. Andy was very blessed. He knew the love of Shala. She gave him his courage, strength, peace and immeasurable joy in his life. He thanked God for her every day. Andy knew the unconditional love and adoration of his princess Alyse. She gave him so much pure joy each and every day from the moment of her birth. He already loved his second daughter and would have treasured her as well. Andy never knew a stranger; to meet him, was to become a friend and his friends were family.

Andy is preceded by his grandparents, Alma and Leland Stroud and Harold and Mirriam Scroggs; uncle, Charles Stroud.

Andy is survived by his family; wife, Shala (Williams) Stroud and four year old daughter Alyse Jordyn Stroud with another daughter due in late December of Omaha, Nebraska; brother, Joshua Stroud (Amanda) of Omaha, Nebraska; mother, Melissa Stroud of Pacific Junction, Iowa; father, Steven Stroud and Jackie of Thurman, Iowa; special aunts and uncles, Laura and Gary Graves, Penny and Larry Eichelberger, Peggy and Dan Webb, Ken Houser, Sr., Pam and Mike Chambers, Roger Stroud, Kathy Cooper, Barb Kaiman, Phil Stroud; special cousins and their children, Mandi and Chris Graves, Amanda Graves, Barb Grubb and Carl, Ken Eichelberger and Robin, Matt Eichelberger and Autumn, Aaron Hauser and Paige, Becky Shelton and Chris, Ken Hauser, Jim Chambers and Jenny, Jason Chambers and Angie, Beth Lantz and Jeremy; mother-in-law, Sheryl Williams of Omaha; father-in-law, John Williams and wife Debbie of Clarinda; brothers-in-law, Jeremy Williams and Kasey, Jarrod Williams and Mel, Justin Williams and Brandi; special niece (little sister in his heart), Mallory Williams; six nieces and nephews; grandmothers-in-law, Margaret Draper and Shelia Williams of Clarinda; lots of special friends.

Andy will be greatly missed by all. But he will be forever in their hearts.
May God grant comfort and peace to those who mourn his passing.
