Andrew Rafferty Pyle passed from this life into the arms of Jesus on Saturday, November 26, 2016, at the family home. It was the most joyous hug Andrew could have ever imagined. Andrew, 31, leaves behind a grieving family, parents Evan B. and Nancy Rafferty Pyle of Baton Rouge, and sister Christine Sheridan Pyle of Waco, Texas; his aunts Emily Pyle, Elinor Pyle and Christine DiMarco; and first cousins Gina Lujan and Lisa D'Antoni, as well as beloved cousins and extended family. Also feeling his loss are a host of friends he made everywhere he went. Andrew was fun-loving and funny, but also felt loss and pain deeply. He specialized in loving people, all people, especially those in need. Andrew was known for his deep passion for music, his affectionate nature, and his smile. In his last months, he recognized a call to Christian ministry. His parents especially thank Home of Grace for their wonderful ministry to Andrew. Through them, Andrew came back into relationship with Jesus and experienced much healing and happiness. Donations can be made to Home of Grace, PO Box 5009, Vancleave, MS 39565. Services will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at First New Testament Church, 3235 Aubin Lane, Baton Rouge. Visitation at 10:30 am with service at noon, followed by a time of food and fellowship. Arrangements under the direction of Greenoaks Funeral Home in Baton Rouge.
