It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Andy on June 19th, 2018. He was born on May 27th, 1939 in Barrhead, Alberta and passed away peacefully with family at his side. Together for 46 years, he leaves behind his loving wife Sharon; his stepchildren Debbie (Peter), Gordon and Sharon(Gordon); his beloved Grandchildren Jaden, Ava, Tanner, Angie and Ryan. Petty Officer “Andy O” devoted 26 years to the Royal Canadian Navy as a Clearance Diver both with the Atlantic and Pacific Fleet Diving Units. Retiring from the RCN he then spent 18 years with Federal Corrections after which he and Sharon moved to Maui, Hawaii where he worked on the Unexploded Ordnance Clearance Project on Kaho’olawe Island Reserve. After a short stint working UXB in California, he returned home to Victoria where he settled into retired life as a Snow Bird, tinkering around the house and working in his garden.
A pioneer in his field, a leader to his divers, a friend to all, a father, a grandfather, he will be missed by everyone. We Salute You.
