1925 — 2013

Andrew William Kovach, fondly known as “Ange” by his friends, died Monday, Aug. 19, 2013, in Roseville, Calif. He was born in Grindstone, Penn., to John and Regina Kovach, was a graduate of nearby Brownsville High School and went on to California State College, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. Subsequently he was drafted into the Army and served most of his hitch in Persia (now Iran.) On his return he migrated to Redondo Beach, Calif., where he taught school in Torrance.

Andrew moved his family to the Placerville area in 1967 when he became Superintendent/Principal of Gold Trail School near Coloma. He served a stint as president of the Kiwanis Club in Placerville and was active in the School Administrator’s Association of El Dorado County. For a number of years he was a partner in promoting stock car races at Hangtown Speedway. He was also part owner of Ponderosa Park in Coloma.

Andrew is survived by his wife of 53 years, Pat; sister, Helen Stefl; son, John; step-children whom he helped raise, Teresa Roderick (Dan), Scott Whitney (Marjorie), Wendy Trytko (Dave) and Shelley Elkan (Ron); and seven grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Terraces of Roseville, 707 Sunrise Avenue in Roseville, Calif.
