Andrew Thacker, Jr.

1949 - 2023

We are saddened to announce Andrew Thacker, Jr (73) of Winston-Salem, NC passed away on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

Andrew, known affectionately as Lil’ An’ to family, was born to Andrew C. Thacker (deceased) and his wife Lillian Johnson Thacker (deceased) on December 16, 1949 in Winston-Salem, NC. He was the youngest of four and a graduate of Atkins High School. A hardworking man, he later worked for the City of WS, Merita Bakery, and Dairy Fresh.
