Nov 21, 1938 – Mar 23, 2016

Andy born in Stettin, Germany, immigrated to Canada with his parents, brother and met his best lifelong friend Wolfy.

He is predeceased by his parents Walter and Emmi, his brother Manfred, sister in law Stella and best friend Wolfy.

Andy is survived by his sister Angela, Sons, Roland and Scott all of Muskoka, his daughters Karin and Heidi of Vancouver Island. His loving granddaughters Ashley, Whitney, Brittany, Paige, Jacqueline & Robyn, his grandson Riley and great-grandson Keeper, all whom referred to him as Opa, and his nephews, Angela & Doug’s sons, Kevin, Eric, and Bryan.

Andy was a humorous character, always known for his jokes and quick wit. He was a very hardworking man doing things he enjoyed, stone masonry, building houses, millwright-fabricator, and in his spare time, his passion which was music, he was a DJ and loved to sing.

He loved to have endless discussions about politics, current events and the stock market. He enjoyed fishing, his garden and his special pets (aka the birds).

Andy immensely enjoyed his requested recent trip to Muskoka, Ontario to have a family and special friends celebrating fond memories, photos , stories and his favorite cheesecake on March 12, 2016.

Family would like to extend their gratitude to Dr. Nick Schulson, who made this trip possible, and for taking such good care of him, to the clinic staff for their ongoing support, and to Dr. Scott Takeda for understanding and providing such compassionate care, and to all the NRGH staff.

Requested, there will be no service, as Andy’s last request was his family trip to Ontario two weeks ago.

Dad, Opa, Andy, you’ll be sadly missed.

Until we meet again Amigo
