Andre joined Roupp Funeral Home, Inc. as Funeral Director/Supervisor, in 1998.

Raised in Mifflinburg, he is a 1994 graduate of Mifflinburg Area High School, is married to his wife, Ellie, and they have one daughter, Monroe.
Andre states, “Funeral ceremonies are a time of remembrance and celebration of a loved one’s life Each person has a life story; each family has a story; I believe it is our challenge to help each family remember and celebrate those stories in their own personal manner. Families trust us in an emotional and grieving time with caring for the deceased as well as creating and organizing the ceremony. We strive to assist families who have trusted in us with great commitment and diligence.”
Andre has been active in coaching boys basketball at Mifflinburg High School since 1998, and as the head varsity coach since 2012. He is actively involved in community organizations such as the Mifflinburg Kiwanis Club, and enjoys playing golf.
