The news of Andrea’s passing this week is still is hard to fathom. Andrea was a good hearted and spirted coworker and such a pleasure to work beside. She had that big smile that invited everyone to be at ease and went to great lengths to make sure she created an inclusive social environment at work. Her great sense of humor and wit help me to step back from serious side of work life and help me laugh at my own mistakes. Her presence will surely be missed by all her coworkers. My sincere condolences to you Chuck and the entire Stump/Kile family.

From: Rajiv Dewan

I am so sorry to hear this news. Andrea was a fantastic colleague with deep knowledge of the systems we worked on. I truly enjoyed our spirited discussions about which soccer team was better - EPL, MLS, or world cup contender. She was as knowledgeable about that as air traffic systems. Her ready smile made it easier to lose all those discussions. Deepest condolences to her family

From: Kevin Berthoud

Andrea is my friend and was one of the first people I met when I joined IBM in the fall of 1989. She was wicked smart, driven, focused and a terrific leader. What I loved most about her is how her eyes seemed to disappear behind that big ol' grin she would flash every time the "gang" would get together. She was a wonderful person and I'll miss her. My wife and I extend our condolences to Chuck and the Kile family.

From: Stacy Reitter

Andrea was bright, witty and a pleasure to work with. She left her mark all across many air traffic control systems and will be missed but never forgotten. I am so sorry for your loss.

She was a wonderful caring person and it came thru in everything she did. Gone too soon. She will be missed by everyone.

From: Alan Thompson

What a shock and what a loss. Andrea and I were both architects on various air traffic management projects, and she was always a pleasure to work with. It is hard to imagine her vivacious personality no longer being present. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and her coworkers.

From: Judith Klein

Sincere condolences for the untimely loss of a happy, bubbly, intelligent person; Andrea, Rest In Peace!

From: Scott Baron

What a sad surprise, deepest condolences on the void of her presence. Worked with her on NERC for years, and will carry many fond memories of her patience, persistence, and drive. Words can't express the loss, but I hope her actions and works remain in our collective memories. Always hard to loose a role model.

From: Lee Elliot

I had the honour and privilege to work with Andrea on the UK Swanwick Centre Programme during the late ‘90’s and early 2000’s. She was an excellent, professional software engineer and architect and a great asset to our joint FDP team. She was also such a great friend and host when us Brits visited the US on work assignments! She will be sadly missed and my sincere condolences to Chuck and all of her family and friends across the world.

From: Victor R. Siegel, DDS and Staff

We are all extremely saddened and shocked to learn of Andrea’s passing. Our sincere condolences to Chuck and the Kile and Stump families. May her memory be for a blessing.

From: Bobbie Smith

So sorry to hear Andrea has passed away. I worked with her in UK Lockheed Martin at air traffic centre. She was a lovely colleague and we shared some fun social times with her and our team. Andrea always had a caring way with her colleagues. I remember her as one of the best. My thoughts go to the family at a sad time.

From: Martin Rolfe

Andrea and I worked together for many years during the NERC and ERAM days at LM. I feel hugely fortunate to have been friends with and a colleague of someone who always smiled and had time to help no matter how busy. Andrea’s friendship extended well beyond the US and I know that all of those she knew so well in the UK will miss her. It seems very fitting to me that through her work as well as her friendship she spanned oceans.

From: Sid and Jane Rudolph

Chuck, Jane and I are so devastated to hear about Andrea. She was a super awesome person...smart, funny, always had your back, and great to just have a drink with. We worked together on many projects, and whether it was the FAA, UK, or any other customer, everyone respected Andrea's knowledge and opinion. She will be sorely missed. I will listen to a Luke Bryan album in her honor tonight.

From: Bob McKeen

I worked daily with Andrea during ERAM's early years, when she was one of three system engineers that constantly cycled through Salt Lake City, where I've been based since 1998. Her professionalism and pleasant personality were always a welcome addition to the high pressure environment that came with breaking in such a new and massive air traffic control system. It also jolted me, the first time she came into the office, wearing the same perfume that my wife has used for 37 years. We both shared a good laugh about that. I am pained by her passing and pray that peace and comfort come to all who know and miss her too.

From:Joan Quinlan

I am so shocked and saddened to hear about Andrea. We knew each other through a woman's organization. She had so many wonderful qualities and will be sorely missed.

Andrea was a wonderful young lady. I knew her when she was a young girl in our Rainbow assembly I send my condolences to Chuck She was a sweetheart

From: Timothy Crawford

From: Viv Chebolu

Deepest sympathies to you and your family, Chuck. I pray that you get the strength to deal with this loss.

From: Howard Cohen

I am truly shocked and saddened to hear this news. So many memories from the 1990's of Andrea and the IBM/Loral/Lockheed gang. Whether it be work, after hours activities, attending each others weddings. To this day I still speak fondly of all the "discussions" Andrea and I had in her office over NERC Bandboxing or Standby Data Management. I think she won more of the "discussions" than I did. But I remember us filling her white board with many diagrams on the topics. She will be missed. Chuck, our condolences to you and the Kile family.

From: Michael "Rux" Ruxsaksriskul

Chuck and family, My deepest condolences during this difficult time, please know you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.

From: Chris Defazio

Chuck, I am so so sorry for your loss. I was very fortunate to have worked with Andrea in the early days of the ATOP program. She became our program conflict probe specialist/tester and then went on to becoming subject matter expert for many other Air traffic programs at Lockheed Martin/Leidos. She was so easy to speak to and always had a smile on her face. She was fast paced but so well knowledge in many areas for terminal, enroute, and oceanic programs. She also was the kindest person to be around. She will forever be remembered and sorely missed. God bless.. My condolences to you and the entire family.

From: Eric Brown

I was so sad to hear of Andrea’s departure. I enjoyed working with her and will miss her. My condolences to the family.

From: Chuck Lee

Chuck, my condolence to you and your family. Andrea was very much loved at BSD. She was kind and very warming to talk to and work with. RIP Andrea.

I am so shocked and sadden for your loss. I worked with Andrea numerous times on domestic air traffic programs and it was an honor to do so. She was always pleasant and so easy to work with. She will be missed. Best regards to her family and you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

From: Sten

Although a co-worker with Andrea at Leidos, we didn’t work together much. We did work on a proposal several years back and I just remember how impressed I was with her knowledge of the system and how kind and friendly she was. I’m so sorry for her loss

From: Claire & Greg

We are so shocked and sad to hear this. We have so many great memories of Andrea back in the old IBM days, including lots of volleyball at the Corner Kick. I ran into her a few years ago in Poolesville. Chuck, we are so so sorry.

From: Suzy Mann

I crossed paths with Andrea at work and she impressed me as an awesome Software Architect, a fellow hokie and an all around nice and fun person. Everyone I knew spoke highly of he. So saddened to hear the news. Condolences. She is missed.

From: Dan Failaccci

Chuck, I am so very sorry for your loss. Andrea and I worked on many projects together and she was very instrumental in my career growth at LM/Leidos. The things I remember most are not from our time at work, but seeing the joy on her face when I walked into her office with some fresh maters from my garden or homemade blackberry jelly, and getting her box of baked goodies at Christmas. She was kind, warm, caring, friendly, extremely intelligent and had a huge heart. She is sorely be missed!

From: Elizabeth A Moore

Surprised to hear that she died. We knew each other from Rainbow. I was there when she and Chuck got married. Lost touch with each other until I found her on Facebook. Sent occasional messages now and then. Rest in Peace.

From: Tom Wesselmann

Andrea was a true friend of mine back in the late 80's and early 90's when I knew her the most both inside and outside of work, and when she was clearly just on the cusp of becoming a rising star at work. Our careers drifted apart since then, but the fond memories of that time still remain. I grieve for her loss, and wish only the best to her husband Chuck who was a good friend as well. She will be missed.

From: Ed and Lisa Byrd

Chuck, Lisa and I are deeply saddened by Andrea’s passing. We both want to share our love and our fond and happy memories in hope that they might slightly ease your burden over the coming days. Strength be with you brother

From: Karen Jones

I am very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the Kile and Stump families. I was completely in shock when I learned of Andrea's passing.

From: Stuart Weinstein

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Andrea only occasionally, but her reputation for excellence always came through. She will be missed.

From: Dawn Martinez

I am still in shock and deeply sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories from working with Andrea over several decades, as well as playing indoor soccer and sharing a love of country music. She had so much exuberance in everything she did! A great example is, when she learned that I liked country music, she created a stack of mixed CDs of female country music featuring her favorites! Those are still in my car today... She will be so dearly missed!

From: Will Taylor

From: Donnetta K (Hall) Staples

I am so sorry to hear of this. Andrea was the best miniature bride ever at my wedding, and a wonderful little cousin. One of my fondest memories will always be of her standing at the front of the church, nine years old, looking over her shoulder at me as I walked down the aisle. She was priceless in her little wedding gown. My thoughts are with you.

From: Jim McKinstry

This is shocking and sad news. Andrea was one of my best friends back when she started at IBM and I have many fond (and some blurry) memories of times with her. She tolerated me which means she had to be someone special. Chuck, you have my deepest condolences.

From: Mark Cooper

Andrea was a truly amazing person, brilliant at work and a caring friend out of the office. I count myself lucky to have worked with her at Lockheed Martin and to have enjoyed a lot of DC United games with her, Chuck and the wider group when I was living in DC. I will never forget the tailgate experience @ RFK. She will be missed. Mark Cooper

I’m still in so much shock. One of my favorite memories of you is when you asked me, on my birthday, why my name isn’t Patricia.
