Born June 25, 1934 in Chester, PA, he was a son of the late Michael and Philomena (Melfi) Ciancia.

Andy was the owner of the Old State Tavern in Media, PA for fifty-two years. Throughout his career he always loved working behind the bar and interacting with his customers. He was well known for never forgetting a face or name making the Old State a special place to visit.
Andy loved the Philadelphia sports teams, especially the Eagles as he was a season ticket holder for over 60 years.
Andy found his greatest joy with family. He was there for every family celebration, trip to the shore, and even the smallest of family gatherings. He never missed an opportunity to be with the ones he loved.
He was an adoring father who took great pride in his children. As “Poppop” he loved attending all the sports, recitals, and concerts of his grandchildren. No matter the event, he was their biggest fan!
