Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
To Anita, Brian, Shawn, Wayne and family members. You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. Andre was always a kind and friendly person. We are so very glad that we got together recently in Carman when Andre was home visiting his mom Anita. He will be missed horribly by so many.

I am so sad to see this news today of Andre's passing. I was also fortunate to have be able to work with Andre in Calgary. Gosh we had fun! Really good times. He was great to be around even if you were with him for one flight as that would just make the rest of your day. I suddenly realized how much having the giggles meant and felt like. Now I will miss them and the reason behind that much more because of this guy. Even though Andre has gone I do believe he enjoyed every minute of his life. Love to you Andre! Condolences to all that knew this terrific person that Andre was. Jill Palmer nee McWhinney - Posted by: Jill Palmer nee McWhinney (friends from work in Calgary) on: Nov 04, 2019
Anita, Brian, Wayne and Shawn and family members I am so sorry for your loss and want to extend my deepest sympathy. Andre was so young and had so much more energy to share with us all. He will be deeply missed. There are countless fun memories of my time with Andre. He could always make me laugh. I loved our time together during school, band and drama events and well who could forget our Tuesday nights at the Carman Bowling lanes! :) Andre loved his bowling! I was so glad that we were able to touch base again at the reunion and when he came to visit Anita. Time had passed but it felt like we had not skipped a beat. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Keep your fond memories of Andre close to your hearts. I know I will. Thinking of you all, Cheryl - Posted by: Cheryl Britton (nee Rose) (friend) on: Oct 30, 2019
