andrew "andy" goolsbee

September 22, 1949 - January 10, 2017

Andrew “Andy” Cruse Goolsbee, 67, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 10, 2017, with family and friends at his side. A Beaumont native, Andy graduated from Beaumont High School in 1967, received a BA in Business Administration from the University of Texas, and a Master of Business Administration degree from Lamar University. Andy held a number of senior marketing management positions at leading oilfield service companies, and was respected not only for his expertise and breadth of knowledge, but also for his ability to make lasting friendships wherever he went. Among his many interests were Texas Longhorns baseball and football, and Andy was a fixture at tailgatings, watch parties, and pretty much any other event that meant quality time with fellow fans. He was fun, witty, caring, and took a genuine interest in the welfare of his friends. An avid music fan, Andy enjoyed making CDs of his favorite songs to share. Each disc featured a sticker that read “Produced Under A Complete Lack Of Supervision,” which, to those who knew and loved him, was a good summary of his joyful approach to life. Andy’s wit, sense of humor, and stories that got more elaborate with every telling will be greatly missed. He is survived by his aunt, Margery A. Moorhouse; and his cousins, Mike, Pat, John, and David Moorhouse, Ann McDonald, and Mary Smith. Andy was preceded in death by his father, Edmond Goolsbee; his mother, Ann Goolsbee; and his sister, Elizabeth Goolsbee. A gathering of Andy’s family and friends will begin 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 18, 2017, at Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont. His funeral service will be 10:00 a.m., Thursday, January 19, 2017, at Broussard’s, with his interment to follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Beaumont.
