    Andrew was like a son to Roger & I and like a brother to our son Gary ever since we met him 4-1/2 years ago. He loved to come out to our farm and just get busy doing whatever needed to be done. He had a heart to match his large size. He will be greatly missed in our family. Love to all his family and friends.

  13. I had the good fortune of recently working with Andrew. It was only a brief period, but long enough for him to make a lasting impression. Aside from being very good at his work, he was a warm, approachable young man who created a positive energy for all of those around him. My thoughts and sympathy go out to all of his family and friends. He will not be forgotten.

    John, Sylvia & Family: Just wanted you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Although we can’t be there in person to express our condolences to you, we can be there in spirit and we certainly will be thinking of you on Saturday.

    We haven’t seen Andrew for years remembering him only when he was a young boy attending Sunday School, with his brothers, at the Chapel. His picture was in the Packet today and he certainly had turned into a fine looking young man.

    Alex mentioned that he had been talking with Roy about the possibility of using the Chapel for a Memorial Service and if that is something the family would like to do that would be okay. Please feel free to give us a call and we can go from there. May God grant you strength and peace to get through the days ahead.

  22. Your commitment to everything you did (work and play) was inspirational and brings a smile to my face. One of my favorite memories was when the power line went down over the Trans Canada. You handled things so well and professionally, ensuring no one got hurt. Your quote, “Ahh…we have a little problem here…” still makes me laugh. We will miss you buddy.
    My sincere sympathy to your family and loved ones.

He always said, “Work hard, but do not forget to have fun.” He deserves a gold medal for all the good he has done. I enjoyed the long talks over the phone with him and the time we spent this summer in Calgary. Those times will not be forgotten. I was really lucky to know him.
