Troy Andrews 

November 4, 1964 – October 14, 2017

Troy passed away Saturday, October 14, 2017 following a lifetime of challenges with addictions and health issues.

Troy loved to be surrounded by people and he was a kind soul.

Troy was predeceased by his parents Don and Cathy Andrews of Victoria, and he leaves behind three sisters Kirsten, Diane and Susan, a son Timothy, and a community of individuals in Nanaimo B.C. where he was supported in the last two years of his life.

Our family is grateful for the support Troy received from the teams at AIDS Vancouver Island and the John Howard Society, especially Michelle and Taylor.

We are also thankful for the compassionate care that Troy received in his final hours in the ICU at Nanaimo General hospital from the nurses and Dr. Patterson.

A memorial service to celebrate Troy’s life will be held at Sands Funeral Home in downtown Nanaimo, 1 Newcastle Ave., at 1 pm on Thursday, November 9, 2017 with a reception to follow. All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to AIDS Vancouver Island.
