Robert “Andy” Andrew Therrell, or “R.A.T” to his fellow Marines and Colleagues, drew his final breath on August 12, 2021 at Carteret Health Care.

63 years young, Andy was a fun, happy-natured man. His family was forged unconventionally, through bond over blood, and he loved them fiercely. He leaves behind 5 sons, 8 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.

He is survived in death by: Son, Michael Paul Green, who he affectionately described as “brute”, but was truly his caregiver in his final years into his final hours; his daughters Brianna & Michaela and grandchildren William, Cerenity & Oaklee. Suave and debonair son, Mugsy Raup, and daughter-in-law, and in this writer's “non-bias” opinion, pistol of a woman, Christian; their children Hunter & Emma. Goofball who “surprised us all” son, Troy Raup and his beautiful life partner, Kara & their sweet Kenzie. Wildly handsome, exceptional son, Travis. First-born, Michael Andrew Thompson, who went off to sow his wild oats and never stopped; his children Demi, Ashlyn & Tyler. Granddog, and secret bestfriend, Rocky. His Sister Juanita and special friend Jan.

There was a 98% chance you would leave a conversation with Andy feeling better than when you arrived. 100% of the time, you would leave with what you needed from him. After being coined the “Miracle Man” by his care-team during a hospital stay in 2003, he considered every moment from that point forward “borrowed time”, and lived his life savoring & appreciating each one.

He joins his parents William & El Doris, his partner-in-crime, best friend, and sister Sheila, and many more on the other side.

Celebration of Life ceremony will be held in Newport @ The Green House, located at Carolina Garden Center, on Saturday, August 21st, from 5:30pm-6:30pm. Family & Friends are welcome. Attire will be casual, bright colors are encouraged, as were his expressed wishes.

Family will join together at a later time, in his send off to the seas. May his spirit watch over us from his recliner throne in the sky. He will be loved and missed, always.
