Maryellen we have so many memories we can share. Our ice scream runs, our dates for “linner”, our coffee chats etc. I could go on and on. Andy will be missed for certain but all the joy, humor and love he had will live in our hearts forever. He was one amazing man who truly adored one amazing woman. Love like that doesn’t come around too often. Stay strong my love and remember you are never alone 💔

Dear Uncle Andy, I only had the pleasure of your company a handful of times, but will always remember your kindness and your great sense of humour. I never saw you have an angry word with anyone and you gave your time freely and without prejudice.

You will always remain with us in our hearts and souls.
Rest easy,

Paul, Mags, Robert and Lisa..

My dear sweet Andy you are and will always be so very special to me, will love you forever and ever💕.
Living next to Andy and Maryellen for four years was joy and a blessing. We shared laughter, tears, sadness and joy, and through it all you were always there for me. We became family!
I remember a stormy evening with the rain pelting down, Norm was away, and Andy and I were outside battling the rain in the window well, not sure who won, lol, however; I remember we were both drenched and Andy still had a smile and we still shared a laugh, this was Andy, positive and calm even in the middle of a storm.
Andy was a man of such character and patience, kindness and caring, he is irreplaceable!
So long my friend , love ya much
My heart is breaking for Maryellen, Kristen, Marcus and the rest of the family sending lots and lots of love xoxo
