Sabol was born in Sewickley, Pennsylvania on June 6, 1930 to parents, Andrew S. Sabol and Florence A. Sabol. He met and married the love of his life, Joan (Faver) at West Liberty State College in West Virginia in 1955. An active volunteer, he served on the Board of the Campfire Girls, President and founder of the St. Marks Episcopal Day School Dad's Club, over 20 years as a board member, including two terms as president of the American Society for Training & Development, President of the Florida Municipal Electric Association Training Committee, and Vice President of the Northeast Florida Safety Association. Andy was a Dale Carnegie Course Instructor and Instructor-Trainer for over 20 years in the Tampa and north Florida area. Retired from the JEA as Division Manager of Training & Safety in 1992, he spent most of his retirement as a volunteer with the Boy Scouts. He has been a member of the BSA since 1941. He started and hosted a weekly TV show for the Boy Scouts for over six years, was a contributor to the Scouting Newsletter, authored five books about Scouting, produced three sets of CD's covering his Boy Scout experiences, wrote articles for the Florida Wildlife magazine, wrote articles for the Retired City Employee newsletter and served on the North Florida Council Executive Board of the Boy Scouts since 1989. "A" is an Eagle Scout, was awarded the Silver Beaver, District Award of Merit, Outstanding Eagle Scout Award, the National Leadership Award, the Silver Axe and the Silver Fox Awards from the North Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America. He was awarded the Vigil Honor from the Order of the Arrow, BSA. Andy was a true "Sportsman". He loved to hunt & fish. But he rarely shot or caught anything. He said he was a "Carrier-of the-Sabol Sportsman Curse!"

Andy is survived by his wife, Joanie; son, Mark Sabol (Deborah); daughter, Trish Kramer (Billy Kramer); granddaughter, Jordan; and grandsons, Will (Kenzie), Clay (Zara) and Drew.

His final party will be held at the Hardage-Giddens Hendricks Chapel, 4115 Hendricks Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32207 on Thursday, December 8th, 2016. Visitation will be from 12:30pm to 2:00pm, with services immediately following from 2:00 – 3:00pm. Private family interment to follow. If you are a Scouter and plan on coming, "Class A" would be GREAT! No flowers, please. If you really want to spend some money, please give it to the endowment fund of the North Florida Council, Boy Scouts of America.
