Andrew Kandutsch Obituary

Surry


Andrew Kandutsch passed away May 4, 2024, peacefully after a long illness, at his home in Surry. He was born in the rural town of Kennan, Wisconsin to Marie and Hugo Kandutsch in 1926.


He served in the US Army, then attended Ripon College, where he met his future bride, Nancy Thulin. He went on to earn a PhD at the University of Wisconsin, and in 1954 the young family moved to Bar Harbor, where Andrew joined the research staff at the Jackson Laboratory. During his long career at the Lab he earned the respect of colleagues both local and internationally, for his careful and original work to understand our bodies’ production and regulation of cholesterol.


After retiring from research, the couple moved to Surry where they lived many years, creating productive gardens and actively enjoying the natural world around them, until Nancy’s death a year and a half ago.


Andrew is survived by his sister, Lucy Syring of Wisconsin, son, Mark of Bar Harbor, and by many nieces, nephews, and cousins.


Donations in his memory can be made to land conservation organizations, or to the Jackson Laboratory. His surviving family, Mark Kandutsch and Mary Ternus express their gratitude to the caregivers, especially Shea Lowther, who made it possible for Andrew and Nancy to live out their days at their beloved home, and also to Northern Light Hospice and Palliative Care services.


Arrangements by Jordan-Fernald, 113 Main St. Mt. Desert
