SUBLETTE - Andrew Jack "AJ" York, 32, passed away on March 11, 2021 in Wichita, KS. He was born March 1, 1989 in Ulysses, KS, to Peter and Roberta (Wilson) York. AJ graduated from Sublette High School in 2007 and attended Kansas State University.
AJ had a knack for picking up nicknames from the day he was born. Through the years he's been known by his closest family and friends as "J-Bird," "Ace," "Alejandro Jose," and most recently as "Uncle AJ." He will be remembered by his loved ones for his sly grin, quick wit, and big heart. AJ was a man of few words but could always light up a room with his jovial presence. A talented farmer and respected businessman, he easily filled any role on the family farm. AJ loved music and sharing laughter with his family and friends. He appreciated a well-written song and a beautiful sunset sky. AJ will forever be a hero to his nieces, and he loved them beyond words.
AJ is survived by his parents, Peter and Roberta York of Sublette, KS; brother, Nicholas York and wife Julie of Satanta, KS; sister, Haley York of Milwaukee, WI; paternal grandmother, Dorothea York of Satanta, KS; and two beautiful nieces, Mackenzie and Brecklyn York of Satanta, KS. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Jim and Betty Wilson; and his paternal grandfather, Milo York.
