Andrew J. Gardner, 91 of Watkins Glen passed away peacefully at Arnot-Ogden Medical Center on August 20, 2019 after a brief illness.

Jud was born July 10, 1928 to William and Grace Gardner in Hector, NY. Jud served in the US Army before returning home to Montour Falls and marrying his beloved wife Phyllis Hager Gardner. Predeceased by his wife Phyllis in 2015 and daughter Cynthia Percey Salamino in 2017. Jud is survived by two sons, Douglas (Gayle) Gardner of Bradford, NY, Philip (Lorraine) Gardner of Cortland, NY and two daughters, Karen (James Jr.) Slaven of Elmira, NY and Nancy (Mickey) Fraboni of Watkins Glen, NY. He is also survived by 13 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. He retired from Akzo Salt in 1989 and later worked summers at Hidden Valley 4H Camp. Jud was an avid outdoorsman who loved to be out in the woods hunting with his sons, and helping to make hay in the summers with his son-in-law. Jud enjoyed spending his days in the rocking chair on his front porch watching deer in the state park, playing cards with friends, and lending a helping hand wherever needed. He loved watching his grandchildren compete in sports and never missed a game no matter how far away.

Our sincere condolences to "Jud's" family. He and you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Jud and Phyllis were a great couple and good 'neighbors' when we lived on Willow Drive. In severe winter weather Jud would wheel his big snow blower up the road and plow us out (with a 99 foot long driveway we sure appreciated that!) He also was generous in sharing his garden vegetables during the summer. Following my retirement from the school system I worked one year at the State Park and had the opportunity to work with Phyllis --- a most cheerful and efficient lady. We miss those days on Willow Drive and will always remember Jud & Phyllis! Memories are truly treasures!

Your Dad was a very kind man, and one of the first to help us settle into our new home in Watkins Glen when we moved here in January 2006. With his truck he helped me bring home a Valentine's gift for my wife from Ithaca: a corner cabinet. He helped me load it into his truck and bring it into our home. We always look at it and remember that Jud helped us get it here.
May he rest in peace.

Father Michael and Susan Hartney
