He served as former Commander of the Wilkes-Barre US Army Reserve Criminal Investigation Detachment (CID) and retired as lieutenant colonel.

He was preceded in death by his wife, and love of his life, the former Nancy Davies, on April 7, 2000. Surviving are his children LTC Karen Andreeko, U.S. Army, (Ret.), Hackettstown, NJ, MAJ Andrew (Drew) Andreeko, U.S. Army, (Ret.) and his wife Jolene, Bangor, PA, and Amy Kinczel and her husband George, Hamilton, NJ; grandchildren Bailey, Ashley, Zachary, and Gavin, sister Arleen Pasonick and her husband Michael, Plains Township, PA, and three nephews.
