In Loving Memory
Andrew Jackson Albritton
September 18, 1932-September 16, 2021
Andrew was born in Fort Green, FL to Frank and Amanda (McKinney) Albritton. He had five brothers and one sister who have preceded him in death. He attended Hardee High School in Wauchula. As a young man he worked for Lee’s Dairy, for the City of Wauchula as a power plant operator, and as a maintenance operator with Phosphate Mining in Lakeland, FL. He married Alpha Wingo on September 10, 1966. They were married for 52 years before her passing. Moving to Sebring, FL in 1970, he worked for the City of Sebring as a power plant operator until his retirement in 1992.
Andrew and Alpha were dedicated members of the First United Methodist Church of Sebring where they taught Sunday School to young children for over 40 years. Andrew also served as a driver for Meals-On-Wheels for nearly 20 years after his retirement. In addition to being a loving husband, father, and grandfather he was an avid quail hunter and farmer. His deep faith and love for Jesus Christ was evidenced by his love for his neighbor, his willingness to serve others, and his faithful obedience to the word of God.
“Papa” as he was called by his grandchildren, will be deeply missed by his daughter and son-in-law Andrea and Aaron Trippensee of Lake City, his son and daughter-in-law Andrew and Deborah Albritton of Sebring, his grandchildren Dr. Amanda and Travis Berry of Miami, Anna and Kyle Hess of Sanford, and Lindsay and Emily Albritton of Sebring.
