Visitation for Andrew Knapp, age 28, of O’Neill will be 3-6 pm on Sunday, June 6, 2021 at Biglin’s Mortuary in O’Neill with a 6 pm Prayer Service officiated by Linda Lambert. Andrew passed away on May 31, 2021 at Methodist Hospital in Omaha, NE after a short battle with cancer. Memorials may be directed to the family for future designation. Biglin’s Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.

Andrew Joseph Knapp was born to Pamela Knapp on September 1, 1992 in O’Neill, NE at Avera Hospital. He was delivered by Dr. Richard Fitch. Andrew attended O’Neill Public High School, graduating in 2011. He had exceptional friends in school.

Through his 28 short years, Andrew enjoyed life and his family, with a special place in his heart for his nieces and nephews. His life revolved around his family and gaming. He loved Kira, the dog, deeply. Andrew stayed at home with his mom, providing amazing care to her.

In early 2021, Andrew discovered a lump on the left side of his neck. It was found he had cancer in his tonsil which had spread to his lymph node. He went to Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center and surgery went amazingly well. He returned home 48 hours later. Two days later he was life-flighted back to Omaha. It was there the Doctors said he had catastrophic brain injury due to loss of blood and oxygen to his brain. He never regained consciousness. Decisions were made and Andrew was put on comfort care. He passed away peacefully several hours later.

Andrew is survived by his mother, Pamela Knapp of O’Neill; siblings, Adam (Roxanne) Tunink of Volin, SD, Travis Tunink (Amy Gatewood) of Mount Sterling, OH, Kristina (Ronnie) Cap of Yankton, SD, Joshua Schmit, and Noah Schmit both of O’Neill, NE; 9 nieces and nephews; uncle, Daniel (Carrie) Knapp of Ogallala, NE; aunt, Debra (Doug) Sanne of Clearwater, NE; uncle, Michael (Patty) Knapp of Denver, CO; and many other relatives and friends.

Andrew is preceded in death by his grandparents, Wayne and Nellie Knapp.
