Lion Country Supply family has lost a great friend and longtime employee unexpectedly this weekend in the passing of Andy Purnell. Andy was a true dogman who bred, hunted and trailed beagles and coon hounds and was a favorite of our customers across the US. He was fixture at field trials and his blue tick DeadRiver Beagles were admired by customers resting in a row outside at our store. His Beagles came to work too and were always waiting patiently for their masters next break from phone sales. We are shocked and saddened and want to reach out to all who knew and enjoyed Andy Purnell.
We invite all his customers and friends to join us and along with his real family in a Celebration of Andy’s Life this Friday afternoon in Bellefonte pa. Reverend Bob Ford will hold a service followed by food and happy tales at the Undine Firehall. Let’s give him a real dog mans send off! Cant make it? Please post your condolences and/or your best short Andy story below.
Thanks, John “Buck” Koritko
