A kind and gentle spirit, Andy had a great love for animals especially his faithful dog Kerry.
A life without passion is a life not lived. Andy was fortunate to have many passions, the greatest of all being music. Andy was very proud to play trumpet for the Sackville and Moncton Codiac Bands and he also enjoyed playing many other musical instruments. Andy was also passionate about old movies and sports, especially his two favourite teams the Toronto Maple Leaf and the Toronto Blue Jays. Later in life Andy developed a love for sleight of hand magic and shared it with neighbours and family members. He enjoyed the challenge of playing Pool with his friends at The Moncton Residence. Andy was a trusted, responsible and caring man. A man of great character who was well liked and respected by all who met him. He will be greatly missed.
