Andrew R. Dunlop, 69 of Valparaiso, IN, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, June 13, 2023. He was born December 24, 1953, in Chicago, IL to the late Allan and Joan (Reed) Dunlop. Andy graduated from Thornridge High School in Dolton, IL, and made his career as the Owner of AT Business Solutions, Inc. in Lansing, IL, where he was still actively working. Andy served as a board member of the Waters Edge Condominium Homeowners Association in Cedar Lake, IN, where he enjoyed spending time on the water as Captain of his boat. He loved to golf as well, but nothing was more important to Andy than his family. Andy’s wife, daughters, and grandchildren were always held in the forefront of his mind. He will be remembered as a smart and hardworking man, who showed kindness to everyone he met. To his daughters, Andy was invincible. He could do anything. Andy was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother, who will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered every day. His light will shine on in the lives of those he touched while he was here.
On April 19, 1980, in South Holland, IL, Andrew married the love of his life, Peggy Zagotta, who survives, along with their daughters: Melissa Dunlop of Valparaiso, Rachel (Roger) Shieh of Crown Point, and Ashley (David) Kacmarik of Valparaiso; grandchildren: Gianna, Lucille, Lainie, and Benjamin; siblings: Amy (Scott) Johnson and A. Scott (Mary) Dunlop; and many loving nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

So sorry to hear about Andy. My wife Patti (Cioni) and I graduated with Andy. I also played HS football with him. He and your family will be kept in our thoughts and prayers! -Michae & Patti Schassburger 

Peggy and family, my condolences to you on Andy’s passing. I enjoyed Andy’s friendship over the years and will miss him, as will his numerous golf buddies. I’m very glad he was able to attend our golf week down in Florida this past March so that we could catch up with each other. May Andy Rest In Peace. -Frank Kubina

We had the pleasure of knowing Andy and Peg when their wonderful daughter, Ashley, married our son, David. Andy's welcoming nature and easy smile are what we will remember with fondness. He was taken from all of you far too soon. May the memories of happy times with the husband, father, and grandfather you loved, and who loved you, bring you some measure of comfort. -Paul & Mary Ruth Kacmarik
