He was united in marriage to Lisa Zinken on May 5, 2001 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in St. Joseph.

He was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, the St. Joseph Volunteer Fire Department for almost 20 years, the Great Northern Model T Club, the St. Joseph Historical Society, T Totalers, and the Albany Pioneer Club.

Andy was a loving husband, father and son who loved to spend time with his family. His wife and children were his life and he enjoyed going with them to the Stearns County Fair Demolition Derby, listening to Polka Music, playing board games and listening to his daughter play the piano. He also enjoyed restoring and repairing Model Ts for others as well as himself. Informally, Andy was an authority on Model T restoration, repairs and parts. He helped many people across the country with their restoration projects and questions. Andy loved working with machinery and especially demonstrating the threshing machines at the Albany Pioneer Days. At home, he enjoyed working with his Farmall Cubs in his Corn Garden. He will be remembered for his smart aleck remarks, quick wit and great one-liners. Andy will also be remembered for living his life treasuring the following: Family, Church and Community.    

He is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Lisa; children, Joseph, Jack, and Katie; parents, Terry and Linda Loso; brothers, Matt (Wendy) and Ben (Julie); and mother and father-in-law, Roger and Mary Zinken; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Mike and Flo Loso and Leo and Phil Salzer.

A special thank you to the staff of the St. Cloud Hospital for their loving and compassionate care of Andy.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.

Andy was a great friend! Without his knowledge and willingness to share it, I couldnt have enjoyed the many miles Ive had driving my Model Ts. He always had a smile and a positive view. I enjoyed many days working with him in the shop and remember the day we climbed up in the church bell tower and I marveled at the mechanics of the old rare clock. Safe travels to you Andy. Rest easy in the Lords loving arms.

I offer my condolences to the family of Captain Andy Loso. Although I did not know him, I appreciate his service as a volunteer firefighter. Far to many heroes have died in the past 2 years as a result of the Covid pandemic.

Andy was a wonderful young man who cared deeply for his family, his church and his community. He taught me the importance of drinking only fine fruit juice and recently learned the technique of sharing just one more story. Thanks for being such a wonderful young man.

Andy was a dear, dear friend, teasing me daily, sharing many conversations and working together on many projects. Andy, Lisa and their children shared family meals, sitting around the bonfire, going for an ice cream run etc. I miss you very much Andy. I know you are continuing your mission and the love for your family, your parish and community from heaven's glory.

Our hearts are broken. Andy was a remarkable, caring man who loved his family, his parish and his community. It was obvious in all that he did for everyone he met! Andy was a delight to work with and brought a ray of sunshine with him every day. He brightened every room he entered and was generous sharing his talents. He had a remarkable memory about the history of his beloved parish and town and valued all of it. May this good man rest in peace and may his family find peace in knowing he is living his heavenly reward and his legacy will carry on for many years.

Andy was a generous and happy servant of his church and broader community. He always had his mischievous grin and a twinkle in his eye leaving a person wondering what he was thinking. He hill be missed by many blessings for his family

When I worked with Andy in the early 2000's at the parish, he always brought a smile to my face. Moreover, I was a recipient and witness of his caring and compassionate actions that he showed the Lab School students and teachers and the parish staff. I am so sorry that he left this life so soon. My sincere love and prayers to all his family members who will cherish his memories. With great love to you all, Geri Dietz
