February 26, 1972 - October 29, 2021
Andrew was born in Coaldale, Alberta. At the age of 14, he moved with his family to Winnipeg. He graduated from St. John's High School and later from Red River College's Collision Repair and Finishing program.
His family was important to him. Katie (age 22) was the center of his world. More recently, he opened his heart again and welcomed Rowan (age 17) to his family. He enjoyed bowling with his mom and children and making new memories during long Sunday drives with his parents and Katie.
Andrew had several different jobs throughout his lifetime, but none matched up to his latest job at Canada Post Depot, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Andrew's love of nature started at a young age. As a child, he enjoyed Sunday drives with his family to the Rocky Mountains. Andrew had a big circle of friends, reaching from coast to coast. With his friends, he continued to enjoy the outdoors by hiking, biking, canoeing, and skating. He completed half marathons and participated in a polar bear run. Andrew treasured his yearly camping trips. It was a delight to see his wonderful smile while he enjoyed a camp fire.
Andrew was kind man. Those who knew Andrew knew that, at the drop of a hat, he would stop what he was doing to help whoever was in need. He was a happy person who enjoyed spending time with people. There will not be a day that goes by that Andrew will not be missed and loved by those whose lives he touched.

I will miss Andrew, you were taken far too soon my best girlfriend. We shared a lot of our lives. I couldn’t wait to see you at bowling every Saturday we talked about everything. Andrew was so supportive when my life came crashing down. Andrew knew that he could tell me everything and anything without judgment. Andrew was loved by so very many people and will truly be missed by all. I know that I keep waiting to see him and the cap he always wore to come in on Saturdays. I still can’t believe Andrew bright light is gone. Until we meet again my dear friend be free ❤️ - Posted by: Donna Normand (Friend ) on: Nov 06, 2021
