November 28, 2005

Andrew Maurice Eastwick Jr., an investment banker and former Butler resident, died of complications from pneumonia Tuesday at Palms of Pasadena Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Treasure Island, Fla., resident was 90.

Mr. Eastwick was raised in Baltimore's Mount Washington neighborhood and graduated from the McDonogh School in the 1930s.

He attended Washington and Lee University in Virginia and, in 1939, married Margaret Rawlings.

In 1943, he joined the Army to fight in World War II and was stationed in the Philippines.

When he returned home in 1946, he spent several years in the real estate business before turning to investment banking with E.R. Jones and other companies.

He retired in 1968 and began spending more time on his 7-acre farm in Butler, where his children raised animals for 4-H programs. For about 10 years, the family also sold Christmas trees.

Mr. Eastwick was an active member of the Butler Volunteer Fire Company, where he served as treasurer for many years. He was a member of Glyndon United Methodist Church.

After his wife's death in 1998, Mr. Eastwick moved to Florida to be closer to his twin sister, Estelle Stephens of Treasure Island. There he enjoyed walking, swimming and reading. He also learned to play the organ.

A memorial service is planned for 11 a.m. Dec. 10 at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens, 200 E. Padonia Road, Timonium.

Mr. Eastwick is survived by a son, Andrew M. Eastwick III of Seminole, Fla.; a daughter, Margaret E. Bull of Butler; two other sisters, Pat Carroll and Dottie Seaton, both of Easton; five grandchildren; and two great-grandsons.
