I have been privileged, lucky, fortunate and proud to have met many interesting and successful people over the years in my career in banking and finance in Southern California. People from all parts of the world, with diverse backgrounds, heritage, education, experience, intelligence, and business skills and acumen. However, after 40+ years, there is only one individual that stands out from all of the others that I have met. That individual is Andrew Kallman. I first met Andrew in 1995 or 1996 when he was a young, ambitious CPA just beginning to grow his accounting firm. But I quickly learned that Andrew was more than an accountant, he was a voracious businessman and entrepreneur. No matter the challenge or obstacle, Andrew was always ready to “take it on” and succeed. When it came to business, nothing could stop Andrew, he had the right touch, understanding, and guile to make it work, no matter how high the hurdles or the degree of difficulty. But while Andrew had all of the skills, and entrepreneurial spirit, there were three significant traits that he displayed that set him apart as a person. Andrew never gave up, he never quit. And, Andrew always shared information on his business - whether it was good, bad or indifferent. He was honest - always, he always told the truth. However, his most important trait was his loyalty. Andrew was faithful and loyal to his friends, to his partners, to his employees, to his clients, to his business relationships, and most importantly, to his family. I could relate many instances of his honesty and loyalty, because as a friend and business associate of his for over 20 years, I saw these attributes many, many, many times over. So, to Frances, Sammy, Kayla, and Nicky and all of Andrew’s family, I do not need to tell you how deeply he cared about you and loved you, you already know that. But you should know that he cared and loved everyone else, and that he was respected as a very fine person and a gentleman. “I will miss you deeply Andrew, but I’ll never forget you”. Rest In Peace Alan Goldsmith

My heart goes out to Francis, Sammy, Cayla, Nicholas and the whole family. I truly loved Andrew and will miss him everyday. Some of my best times were when Andrew and Francis would have dinner with Judy and I. This is a devastating loss for me. I truly loved Andrew (and always will).
