Obituary of Andrew R. Blom
Mr. Andrew R. Blom, age 78, of Danbury, died Friday December 10, 2021 at his home. He was the husband of Ellen A. (Reiss) Blom.

Anyone who knew Andy, knew what a hard working, dedicated man he was. His sense of humor was one of a kind. He was a wonderful husband and father that taught his boys the values that they have today. As a grandfather, his soft side was very apparent. He would sit for hours watching tv or telling stories about life to his grandkids. Having them around was Andy’s favorite pastime.
Andrew Blom proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army 82nd Airborne Division.
In addition to his wife Ellen, Mr. Blom is survived by his sons: Jeffrey Andrew Blom and his wife Dawn of Thomaston, Jay Andrew Blom and his wife Christie of New Milford and Justin Matthew Blom and his wife Sofia of New Milford, his grandchildren: Kelsey Blom, Pierce Blom, Mason Beers and wife Rose, William Bennett, Jacob Bennett, and his two great grandchildren: Everlee Beers and Aubree Beers. He was predeceased by his son Jonathan Christopher Blom and his grandson Christian Bennett.
