Andy was born January 31, 1938, to Thomas and Anna Kasper in Hawarden, SK. He was raised with his five siblings on the family farm in Hawarden. Andy moved away from the family farm in the mid-1950’s, spending the next twelve and a half years traveling Saskatchewan and Western Alberta as a Telegraph Operator and Station Agent for the CPR. It was during Andy’s time at the CPR that he met the love of his life, Linda. Andy married Linda on August 3, 1963, in Swift Current, SK. On January 16, 1965, Andy and Linda welcomed their first child, Terry. Two years later, on May 13, 1967, Kim was born into the family. In 1968, Andy and Linda put down roots and moved their family to Lanigan, SK. That is the same year that Andy left the CPR to work at the Lanigan Potash Mine. In 1972, Andy took his trade as an electrician and began running his own business, Casper Electric. He ran Casper Electric for 33 years, serving Lanigan and area. Andy had many passions, but nothing as strong as his passion for hunting and the outdoors. He spent much of his spare time on their boat fishing the numerous lakes of Saskatchewan and moose, deer and goose hunting with many of his hunting buddies. Andy and Linda’s purchase of their fifth-wheel led them to various campgrounds around the province and the Yukon, where they made innumerable summer memories with friends and family. Andy’s other pastimes included his gun work, where he spent many hours making rifles and bullets, sitting by the open fire, cooking, playing cards (and more cards), watching curling, listening to the “good-ole music” on the radio, and planting and caring for his garden. Andy cared deeply for his family and friends and his best spent time was when he was surrounded by them.
