Dear Patrick and Sharon, I have no words , been listening to Real World of Money for years now and felt I’ve gotten to know both Patrick and Andy very well. You both have shown incredible honesty and the integrity is off the charts ( It’s like asking a barber if you need a haircut says Andy when numismatic coins were brought up) He is an incredible man and I grieve the loss and will for who knows. I love him and LOVE you both and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being all that you are. You’ve helped me in more ways than you know. I have been and will be thinking of you as well as Andy and his family , you both have touched me so much I can’t help but think of you .. Much love

Patrick can you please let me know of Andy’s more polite way of saying Sh*t hitting the fan ? Something along the lines of impinging on oscillating rotators .. much appreciated

He died on MLK day. I wish I knew, I would have drove down there to pay my respects.
He will be sorely missed …
Godspeed to you Andrew to your next destination ….

I bought Andy’s book “The Secret World of Money” in Jan. 2012 and glanced over it, not really having much understanding, but almost never missing to download one of the podcasts. From his book he says, “If I can expand one horizon or open one pair of eyes to a subject that touches the lives of all, then I have succeeded in my goal'” He succeeded in his own very humble way. The show with Patrick and Andy was the only one that made me feel a little bit more educated, even though I’m of the same age. Our time is short to lay claim to God’s promise and will that he wants us to live forever, but I’m glad Andy was here to fill a void, while we struggle with this current system.

So sorry for the loss of your friend Patrick. Enjoyed listening to him every week. He will be missed. My condolences to his family.

Please continue your memorial tribute to Andy next Wed. Those like me who just learned of Andy’s graduation today have lots of stories about how Andy has influence their life. I’ve never listen to your broadcast live. I’m always working.
Wednesdays will never be the same without Andy. Please consider continuing your Wed. broadcast on a financial topic as a dedication and tribute to Andy. I’d love to hear Fred as a guest.
My sincere gratitude to a friend I never met.
Thank you Patrick for the introduction.

So sorry to hear about his passing. I am shocked having learned that he’s gone. He was a really brilliant man and I will miss him. I have listened to this show for the past ten years and always looked forward to hearing the weekly podcasts. My sincere condolences to his family as well as to you Patrick.

noooooooo! i want his family to know that he was THE BEST listen. there’s one show i never miss – patrick and andy on orn or klbj. andy was the ultimate patriot and american hero. his book on the fed is on the short list of greatest of all time. God broke the mold after creating him.

Crikey that was an unexpected shock!!!
It was only last week I was listening to him munching on his Sulphur flakes.
Andy’s weekly slot was the highlight of my week and I will miss him.
It was listening to Andy that got me into coin collecting in the first place.
The conspiracy theorist in me wonders if it was the “boys” who took him out for educating us about their financial shenanigans but it’s probably more likely that God just wanted to show Andy his coin collection.
RIP Andy…you earned it.

RIP ANDREW GAUSE. You were a national treasure.

I`m in shock…. never missed an episode…
Thank you Patrick for sharing your friendship with Andrew with all of us.!

I submitted numerous questions to Andy over the years. His advice was thoughtful and wise. He helped me regarding my mortgage, my federal pension, my purchase of gold and silver and more. I will miss Andy’s unvarnished take on the state of our country’s money and its debts. I am in shock at his quick passing. I was expecting to click on the latest broadcast and her Andy’s kind and measured voice. My condolences to his family.

I found out about Andrew from your Facebook post that I read Monday morning and though I was at work I said “Oh My God, Oh My God!” rather loudly. Luckily, no one was around at the time. I held it together fine until on my way home that night I was listening to talk radio as they were describing the B.S. about Pelosi, the Shutdown, the State of the Union, etc, ad nauseum and I broke down sobbing realizing that my centerpoint, the voice of reason, Andrew Gause, who kept me from calling it all quits, had passed away. And now listening to this memorial, your story about Andy helping you fix your vacuum cord dissolved me into jelly again. My deepest condolences to you Patrick. How he will be missed….

I too saw Andrew in my dream world. What a wonderful man. Every time I put on my Yellow shirt I will think of him. Weds. will never be the same. I’m so sad for his families loss and ours.

Patrick, upon learning of Mr. Gause’s passing, a horrendously personal and shocking tragedy, all I could do was to react with screaming in unrelievable and unmitigated pain. Although I never met Mr. Gause in person, I grew to respect and admire him like he was a modern day Socrates, a patriot of the first water, and a gentleman with unmatched wit, charm and intelligence. I think Mr. Gause’s passing will be the exception that proves the rule that anyone can be replaced. He is truly unreplaceable. Please let his family know how much he was loved by his faithful audience and is already tremendously missed. I share in the grief and sorrow of his passing.

Wow we lost a giant of a man, a mentor for all, my heart goes out to his family and and his oneradionetwork family. You Andrew will be so missed.

It is very much a shock to see the news when I came to the Wednesday ritual of downloading the podcast. As I had done for over 5 years. His knowledge opened up a new way for me to look at the world, and I really value what is my new insights and perspective that developed from his sharing.
I am going to miss the Andy, Patrick community. Even though I only contributed a few emails, I felt a part of it.
If the measure of a mans life is the impact he had, Andy’s was significant and long lasting on me.

A very BRIGHT LIGHT has just gone out in the darkest of times.
You are in a much BRIGHTER place now Andy.!!!
Thank you for the hours of enlightenment. !!

A very BRIGHT light in the DARKEST of times has just been extinguished.
You are in a much better place now Andy.!!

Patrick, I came to One Radio Network last night to listen to Andy and I could not believe what I read. I am shocked, upset and still in awe. Me and my grandmother are customers of his firm. Andy came to visit me and my grandmother personally at her residence when she was considering making a large purchase of gold and silver coins from his company. When I met Andy he was one of the smartest and nicest men I have ever met. He and Jason Schafer sat down with me, my grandma and my sister and explained why real money aka gold and silver will always triumph over paper money. After welcoming us to the SDL family, I thanked Andy for all he has done for my financial education, he gave me a hug with a big smile and he and Jason left and went about their business. I cried last night and I am still mourning today. Andrew Gause was and will always be a national treasure, patriot, top economist and outstanding human being. I only met him in person once but he was definitely a mentor in my life and I will always refer to his teachings whenever I have to make a financial decision going forward. Thank you Patrick for giving this great man a platform to teach on and even though a piece of my heart has broken a little, I still look forward to the future and to seeing where this secret world of money takes us into 2019 and beyond. I will never forget you Andy. Godspeed my friend.

Patrick, thank-you for hosting Andy Gause for so many years and educating so many. I will miss his voice and words of knowledge so very much. I never met Andy in person, however, he has impacted my life greatly especially in regard to money. Andy was not afraid to speak truth to the multitudes about money – he spoke truth that touched so many lives including mine. Over the last ten years from Andy I became a coin collector – learning most of what I know from Andy. Recently I received an award for one of my inventions, when writing the acceptance speech I could only think of what would Andy say – so I wrote and said what came to mind and received a standing ovation – he is and was a great man – and he lives on in all of us who allowed him and his knowledge and wisdom to enter into our hearts. We all love you Andy and will miss you just for a time!

Gosh this was one hell of a shocker to hear Andrew passed. My daughter told me and we were so sad. We loved him and what he stood for. My condolences to all his family and friends. The deeper part inside cannot help but to think the dark side had a hand in his death. There is a huge attack on those who speak the truth and try to inform us of what is going on. Hate to think that but he seemed to have such energy and passion for what he did for people. He was a huge voice for me and someone whose knowledge I trusted.

I’ve been a listener (and donor :-) of yours for years now and also a customer of SDL too (I usually work with Fred – and will make a point to buy some more coins soon – in the name of Andy).
Andy was such an amazing person on so many levels, not just his knowledge of financial issues. Lot’s of folks have passed recently, but Andy’s passing hit me pretty hard, and I know it did for you Patrick, and Cindy and Andy’s kids and for sure many many more people. He will be missed greatly.
I did have a positive thought though… Andy did at least twice as much as a normal person, probably more… So since he lived to be 59 years old, he really lived over 100 years as it would relate to a normal person. He just squeezed a lot more into his years than most folks do!!
Here’s to Andy, and to you for giving him a broad voice over the years!

Right before recession . Not fair , he would love to ride this one . Great man , rest in peace . We will miss him . I bought his books for my children to learn how “Uncle Sam Cooks the Books “

I’m very sorry to hear of Andy’s passing. A great guy whom I learned so much from and he will be sadly missed. Sincere condolences to his family at this difficult time. I will leave you with an Irish blessing:
Death leaves a heartache
no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no
one can steal.
May the road rise to met you Andy!

Still weeping, as I just heard about Andy’s passing.. It is sad for all of us, and is for me like losing a financial father figure. He is truely irreplaceable and a great loss to the world of aware money people. I have listened to Andy since 2009 and he really changed my perspective on the real world of money. So glad he came into my life, his mentoring words will pass on through all that “got it eventually”.. It took 3 or 4 shows for the penny to drop on some topics. Without Andy I would have made some (more) financial boo-boos following collapsatarian’s advice! Wednesdays will not be the same for a while! Sorely missed..

Thank you so much Patrick for having given this courageous, honest and insightful soul Andrew Gause a wide avenue to the world on your show. The amount of information that he exposed is phenomenal. We the audience have been quite blessed to have had both you and him make available the rarity of “true” information. Thank you Patrick and Andy from my heart.

Sorry to hear about Andy’s passing. I’ve learned a lot from him. Rest in peace!

I just heard of the news. I have been listening to Andy since 2009 and was very much taken by his knowledge of the monetary system. He was a great person and worth listening to. Learned a lot from him after reading his two books.
This kind of news sadden me deeply, he was a good mentor. I would miss his teaching about money. Thank you Andy for all the time you invested in showing us the road – we’ll miss you, man! God be with you!

I just heard…. and am at a loss for words. I mean. we take people for granted, sadly. Andrew was just…always there. Strong. Tough. The same age as me, in fact. Every few months I’d visit OneRadioNewtork to download a few of Andy’s podcasts, and here I am, today, only moments ago finding out why someone else was doing the show. Andy— a good man-. Loved.
