Michael Christopher Andrle

September 24, 1979 - November 23, 2020

Michael Christopher Andrle was born on September 24, 1979 in Arlington Texas to Zenette Renee Andrle and Charles Edmond Andrle.   He was born at 7:47am and the doctor said he is a 747 Jumbo Jet and Michael proved to be just that.   After moving from Arlington to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, he played basketball, soccer, football, baseball and did Karate, with zeal and determination seldom seen.  Often playing 2 or 3 sports during the same season.   His soccer experience helped him excel in baseball positions, his favorite was 3rd base.   He was fast and could steal bases almost without fail. 

Michael, like his older brother Charles, whom he admired, played drums and guitars and loved recording music and jamming with friends.   He loved his family including his brother and sister, Cindy and his 5 nephews and niece.  

Michael graduated from Broken Arrow High School in 1998 and attended Junior college in Norman, Oklahoma.  He has lived in Galveston, Houston and Allen, Texas, where he was employed by Target and attended Collin College.  

He is survived by his Father and Mother, Charles and Zenette Andrle of Allen, Tx, His Brother Charles Bryan Andrle and his wife Necia Jean Andrle of Allen, TX, and his sister Cindy Alaine Butler of Vernon Hills, Illinois and her husband Rhett Alan Butler.   Also his nephews and niece:  Bryce Alexander Butler and wife Brittany, Charles Alex Andrle and wife Alexandria, Samuel Mason Butler, Austin Kyle Andrle, Isabel Renee Butler and Joseph Edward Butler and many aunts, uncles and cousins in the Andrle, Butler and Clemens families.

Michael will be remembered by his great smile, his desire to help others, and his devotion to reading and studying the bible.  He enjoyed sharing with others his love for the Lord and helping his family and friends to know Jesus loves them.       


A funeral service will be held at Church Eleven 32, 700 Rivercrest Blvd, Allen, TX, 75002.  A private interment will be held at Ridgeview Memorial Park.

Just found out about Michael passing away yesterday. He was a great friend of mine in school since second grade. He always treated me and others with respect and he always made my day better talking to him if I was having a bad day. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him and now the Lord has brought home another of his children. Much love and prayers for his family and friends. God Bless, Steven Brundage Steven Brundage , December 19, 2020 Mike was a wonderful person with many qualities. I have so many good memories with him that I hope I never forget. David Ragsdale, December 19, 2020 I am so sorry for your loss. Michael has been a sweet friend of mine. I met him at my old job and it turned out he was a patient and the job I'm currently at. He will be missed. I am thankful I got to see him one last time to say hello. May he rest in paradise. rina mendez, December 2, 2020 Hi everyone! I am so sorry for the loss of Michael. I’ll be thinking about everyone and praying for peace for your family. Brittany Harris, November 30, 2020 Michael was a kind, wonderful man. We were lucky enough to be neighbors. Our fondest memories are of him sitting outside always reading his bible or a good book! He always had a smile and we all enjoyed our conversations with him. He will be missed. Chuck & Zenette, you raised a great man and your family will continually be in our prayers. Frank, Barbara, Tesa, Taylor, and family, November 28, 2020 You have our deepest sympathies during this heartbreaking time. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Love and Prayers, Kevin & Angie Clemens Kevin and Angie Clemens , November 26, 2020 I’ll always remember Michael’s good nature and how much fun we had skiiing together several years at Angel Fire. He was a great ski buddy, especially when we wanted to go hit all the fast blue and black slopes! I will never forget his cheerful smile and jokes... just a good friend and cousin to hang out with. Also family reunions and such, but skiing was the best of times! You will be loved and missed , Michael.... Craig Andrle, November 26, 2020 Hello Aunt Zennette and Uncle Chuck. We're so saddened by the news of Michael's passing. We're holding you close in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers. Rosella(Clemens)Johnson, November 26, 2020 I met Michael through friendship with Chuck and Zenette. I found he greets people with a great pairing of gentle eyes and optimistic smile. He chose to like immediately the people he met, even before knowing them, trusting his presumptions would later prove true. Doubtless, such a countenance encouraged many who needed such, even in casual momentary encounters. I know also he appreciated the great love he knew from his family, and it humbled him. He felt protective of his parents, grateful they provided the same for him at all times. And he loved the Word. It was the underlying foundation for him amid this turbulent foreign place where we all live. I am encouraged for Michael in knowing he now sees, first-hand, the fruition of his hope and faith. Brian Ballard, November 26, 2020 We are long time neighbors of chuck and Zenette. Over the years we had many opportunities to get to know Michael. He loved the Lord and was always willing to grow. Doug and Michael had many conversations about God and life. Some of our memories are of Michael being outside reading his bible with Bear by his side, from time to time, hearing him play his drums while we were outside. :) He was always willing to help out as a neighbor offering to help Doug get down our Christmas tree from our garage many times. Chuck and Zenette and family we are so sorry for your loss and you know we are here for you anytime. Love y’all. Doug and Leanne Leanne and Doug Freiberg , November 26, 2020 Though I hadn't had much contact with my first cousin in the past 30+ years because I live in Las Vegas, Nevada, I will always remember that when Michael was small, he said that I was his favorite cousin. I will always remember that and his large smile. He will be missed greatly. He lived larger than life and had a profound influence on a great many people. Rest in peace, Michael. With love always. Stephen Robert Andrle Stephen Robert Andrle, November 25, 2020 Chuck and Zenette. I’m so sorry for your loss and I love you both. I pray for God to give you comfort during this season of grief and sorrow. Praying for restoration and unity to flow and praying for your family to unite together during this time. I give thanks for you. Michael knew how much you loved him and he was blessed because of you and your love for him. He is sitting in the arms of Jesus at peace. God bless you.
