Andrew (Mr. Q) Quattrocchi, 52, who was killed Wednesday in an automobile accident in Temple Hills, was a physical education teacher and tennis coach at Prince George's Community College.
He had joined the faculty shortly before the college was moved from a temporary site in Suitland to its permanent campus in Largo in 1967.
After the move, Mr. Quattrocchi became director of the college's department of physical education, health and recreation, a position he held for about four years.
He then returned to full-time teaching and tennis coaching, leading the school tennis team to three national tournaments. He had received an award as an outstanding teacher in this country.
Mr. Quattrocchi was born in New York City. After serving with the U.S. Marine Corps in World war II, he entered the University of Maryland, where he graduated in 1950. He was lightweight amateur boxer at college, known as "The Sand Man."
He entered the Prince George's County public school system 27 years ago, teaching physical education at Suitland High School, Suitland Junior High School, where he helped establish the guidance program, John Hanson Junior High School before joining the community college.
He had been active in the county's Senior Citizens Program and had helped to establish a unit at the college.
He is survived by his wife, Naomi, and a son, Andrew J., of the home in Temple Hills; two daughters, Ruth Ann Hardin, of Temple Hills, and Diane, of Greenbelt; his parents, Anthony and Effie Quattrocchi, of New York City; two sisters, Dorothy Maxemchuk, of North Arlington, N.J., and Jesse DiVita, of Livingston, N.J., and two grandchildren.
