In Memory

Andrew Barcan

Class of 1963

Andy Barcan

It was nice of  you to reach out to us about Andy.  I put together some thoughts, as there was no formal
obituary written for Andy.

After APHS graduation, Andy went off to NYC for eight years, where he attended Columbia, and NYU
medical school.  He was always a brilliant student, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Columbia.  It was
there that he met his wife Marcia at a college dance.  After Andy graduated from med school, he and
Marcia moved to California, where they stayed.  He completed a residency in pediatric medicine in San
Diego, and they made a home in LA, where they raised their three children - Jessica, Abigail, and
Jonathan. In recent years, Andy and Marcia moved to the Bay Area, to be near their children and
grandchildren (three beautiful boys).

Andy continued to fish in California - a hobby he first enjoyed in Shark River growing up.  He was active
in his synagogue, and shared his love of music and jazz with his children.  He died this past December,
not long after Marcia passed.  May his memory be a blessing unto us all.

Andy and Marcia rescued and cared for many animals over the years, and have passed this passion on to their
children.  Those who would like may contribute to the SPCA.
