Town of North Elba


The Town of North Elba lost a valuable and unique member of its family this week. Andrew St. Louis passed away so unexpectedly and has left a hole in our family and a hole in our hearts. Andrew was our Golf Course Superintendent as well as a guy who we would call on when we needed something accomplished that no one else could do. Andrew accepted every challenge and found a way to get it done. He was always upbeat and could get a chuckle out of you with a memory or story. He always had a minute to talk hockey, Yankees, weather or just the news of the day. He definitely brightened your day. He always found time to chat with our golfers about their experience on the course that he took such good care of and was so proud of.

We, as the North Elba Family, extend our warmest condolences and deepest sympathy to the St. Louis family. Shelley, Carson and Lexie we will always be here for you. We will miss Andrew in so many ways, but we will always have the memory of his warm smile and kindness. May he rest in peace!!
