Robert Andrew Comeaux “Andy”

Robert Andrew Comeaux, known as Andy, passed away on March 20, 2015, at the age of 33 due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Andy was born on September 16, 1981, and was the oldest son of Robert and Debra Comeaux. An avid Longhorn fan, Andy graduated from his beloved burnt orange nation, the University of Texas at Austin, in 2004. Together since they were teenagers, Andy married the love of his life, Monica, in 2005 and set the mold for many of his friends on how to be the perfect husband. He was an ardent supporter of his wife and the loudest cheerleader while lining the roadways during her marathon adventures over the years. She, in turn, was his biggest supporter while helping him raise money for runs and walks to benefit research efforts for CF. Despite his CF diagnosis, Andy lived life to the fullest and didn’t let his sickness keep him from playing softball and attending the multitude of exercise classes Monica taught. Never one to sit still, Andy loved traveling with his best friend and wife to new locations, including to both Disneyland and Disney World, Destin, Mexico, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Denver, San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, New York, Saint Croix, Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago, Seattle and Mrytle Beach, to name a few. Andy realized his dream of becoming a father when he and Monica adopted their daughter, Lexie, in 2013. Andy relished this new role and was proud to be the father of a beautiful young girl. The addition of Lexie completed Andy’s family life, making him the luckiest guy in the world.  Andy was known as a true sports fan and was in regular attendance at Houston Texans home games. And, through thick and thin, Andy was also an ardent supporter of his hometown team, the Houston Astros. He shared his passion for sports with his brother, Alex, as they watched games together, compared notes on different teams and attended as many games together as possible. With his quick wit and sharp-as-a-tack sense of humor, Andy was always known for making people laugh, all while doing it with a straight face.
Andy worked at Dominion Steel Specialties, Inc., for the last 10 years and was dedicated to his role in his family’s business. As the company’s Vice President, Andy was highly-regarded by his coworkers, customers and business associates both nationally and internationally.

Andy is survived by his loving wife and beautiful daughter, Monica and Lexie, his parents, Robert and Debra, and his brother, Alex, and his wife’s family, father-in-law Felix S. Flores, mother-in-law Velma Flores, and brother-in-law Felix M. Flores. He is also survived by his extended family, including his grandfather, Robert Comeaux, Sr., and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.


A visitation will be held on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 1:00 pm with a memorial service to follow at 2:00 pm at Crowder funeral Home, 2422 Broadway Pearland, TX 77581.

  6. Andy was a true gentleman; kind, welcoming, polite and professional. He always had a smile on his face no matter what and I admired that quality about him. You could see the love and affection he had towards his family whenever the subject opened up. As much as this news hit me hard and was shocking, it has to be insurmountably devastating for his family and I am truly sorry for their loss. Please accept my deepest and sincerest condolences.

  8. I’m truly heartbroken after hearing that Andy has passed away. I only knew him for a short time, but I don’t know of anyone whose life wasn’t made inestimably better after crossing paths with him. For myself, it was when I was the entertainment editor of the Daily Texan where Andy applied to write movie reviews. Always self-deprecating, likely because of the sheer humility he possessed or all the teams from Houston that he loved whose lack of winning always gave him something to joke about, Andy wasn’t sure whether he was a good enough writer to make the Texan staff, but after reading his application, I assured him that he was. He wrote plenty of DVD reviews, partially because he really was a good writer, but also perhaps because I enjoyed having him visit the office so much, his presence always brightening the place up. From what I heard, Andy had quite the 21st birthday party and yet he filed a piece on “Jaws” the morning after because he knew he was on deadline, indicative of the kind of person he was.

    It would delight me to no end to find out that Monica, a classmate of mine at UT who I found to share a similar goodness as Andy, was actually his girlfriend and had been for some time. It touched me even more to find out later that after the two had married, they took in Lexie, who they knew they could give a better life to. It’s simply not fair that such a generous spirit has been taken away from us this soon, but just envisioning that grin that would cross his face so often right now, whether it was when he was just fooling around with friends or how seriously happy he would get when talking about his family, makes me appreciate so much that I got the chance to spend any amount of time with him. The last time I saw him in 2012, I promised I’d root for the Houston Texans in the playoffs, even though I’m a Steelers fan. I plan to do so now from here on out, thinking of him every time, and I just wish the best for all of his loved ones during this difficult time.

  12. I shared a cab with Andy back in 2011 but we didn’t get a chance to really get to know one another, but through a mutual friend of ours I understand he was a super guy and a hard worker. My condolences go out to his parents, his wife and child and extended family.
