August 20, 1982 – May 13, 2012
Andrew Read, son of Laura and Ron and brother of Stefan and grandson of Barbara Kwasny, passed away from complications of cancer and of cystic fibrosis at the age of 29.
Although he had two serious diseases, Andrew enjoyed a simply remarkable life. He immersed himself in his favourite things: playing and watching sports of all kinds, skiing the powder, travelling with friends, attending concerts, and working as a process engineer at Keywest Projects.
His life was made remarkable through the devotion of the people who surrounded him. He loved all his Kwasny and Read relatives, his many loyal friends, and his encouraging, compassionate medical and clinical teams.
