Andrew Lee Hattery

January 01, 1970 - March 25, 2016


Andy, as he was known to family and friends, was born to James and Laura Hattery in Webb City, Missouri on Aug. 31, 1935. He passed after a short illness on March 25, 2016. After a “Tom Sawyer” boyhood in Missouri, Andy served in the USAF for 4 years. He received an associates degree from North Idaho Junior College and attended the University of Idaho for a year. In 1959 he married the love of his life, Leona. They had five children: James, Denise, Christopher, Melanie, and Andrea. In 1961, Andy started his career in the INS. This career lasted over 30 years and took Andy and his family from one end of America to the other. He ended as port director for immigration at the Peace Arch. Upon retirement, Andy worked as an immigration consultant. Always an avid reader, Andy began to write in his last years, finishing two books about his childhood and his career. He is survived by his children James Hattery, Melanie (Hattery) Haines, Andrea Hattery, and Kevin Haines; his grandchildren Mitchell and Julia Moquin (to whom he was their beloved “Papa”); his sister Clair Casale & brother Gibson Hattery; and by many friends. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. A Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, April 6, at 11:00 AM at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Blaine.

  1. I’m sorry to Andy’s family for losing him.. I worked with him for just a few years in Blaine. He was a sweet, kind, helpful guy.. Always smiling. I’ll remember him always.

  2. My sincere sympathy on the passing of your father. He was a wonderful person. My husband Max Barney (he passed away 3 years ago) treasured his friendship with.your dad. They worked together in the law firm of Greg Boos in Bellingham. The four of us spent many happy times together. The obituary did not list Leona as surviving him. If indeed she has passed I apologize because I was not aware.
    You all have a wonderful heritage from truely remarkable parents. May God bless each one of you and your families.
