I am deeply sorry for your loss. Andy grew up with my brother and was like my own brother. My heart breaks for you all. Andy was kind, funny, thoughtful and will be missed dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I believe we've all known each other, without having actually met. I first met Andy my first year attending Darcy Mcgee. I had transferred from Immaculata in Ottawa and attended Darcy from grade 9 until graduation. I had never met someone with a Mohawk and was awestruck when Andy walked around with his! I told him I loved it and it was awesome and we immediately hit it off! Of course that was after he got in my face and spouted, What the $#&ck are you looking at! Lol As with me, both my sisters fell in love with his huge spirit! And thus our friendship and bond began! 34 years of memories with this friend and not one moment was ever dull! Lol everyone who knows Andy knows he was a handful! Lol but how could you just not love the guy! If he was your friend, he loved you like a sibling! And he wasn't shy to tell you, at least after a few pints! Our fishing and camping group of pals is a very close knit group. For the most part we've all know each other for more than 30 years, and he was one of us! We will miss him, but we will especially miss him with each cast of a line in the water! With each fish landed or lost, we will miss him! But please know, our group will Never forget him! He will be celebrated and remembered each time we tie our knots, set up our tents, sit around a roaring fire, and share a few pints. You can guarantee that we will acknowledge his spirit and his presence! From all of us, we are so sorry for your loss! The world lost a fire ball of a soul when his spark went out!
With much love, Jason and the boys!

Rita, family and friends

I am saddened by this news but I have nothing but absolute fond memories of Andy and his contagious laughter, sparkling eyes and radiant smile. I am positive his warmth will be comforting every time he is thought of because that’s who he was and the effect he had and will always have on anyone who came across him or will think of him from now on. ❤️ Rest In Peace Andy xo

The Family

Truly sorry for your loss. Andy and I were friends not close but we did grow up when we teenagers. We did party together and went fishing trips together. How I met Andy was when we were about 15, 16, Andy came to my neighbours house. Andy had this huge colourful Mohawk. Andy was a rebel. lol. We hung out and had fun.
I was shock when he passed. Life is to short. But I know Andy would like us to party on and live life to the fullest. Rest in peace Andy and thank you for time we had together. You will be missed.
