Andy & Frank Varipapa finish 4th in ABC Classic Doubles (1961)

Andy’s last competitive achievement of note came at the ABC Tournament in Detroit in 1961. Just a few weeks before his 70th birthday Andy, the oldest bowler in the Classic Division, and his son Frank teamed up to finish fourth in the Classic Doubles with a 1252 total, as Andy rolled 648 to Frank’s 604.


Almost exactly one year later and just a few days before turning 71, Andy announced his retirement from competition after completing his last qualifying block at the PBA Houston Open.
