Rest In Peace Andrew. My condolences and heartbreak are for yous. I wish I got to meet my uncle because I’m sure he would’ve been a wonderful guy to get to know. I wish I could’ve told him everything I have achieved in life so far. You are so strong fighting cancer I can’t imagine the battles you would’ve went through but I’m glad you aren’t in pain anymore. Rest easy, till we finally get to meet one day x

Jane, Stephanie & Ben. My thoughts are with you all today as you celebrate Andrews life.
I enjoyed working with Andrew and he always loved a good story and chat, and loved to tell me what adventures he had been up to with his family like in campervan or beach surfing.
You are all in my thoughts today

To Andrew's wife and family with my deepest sympathy.
Andrew was a work colleague at the covid centre at the civic theatre. Andrew was very kind and caring and would pass on his knowledge to all that needed his expertise. To be taken so young is so very sad. A gentleman to the core. Rest easy Andrew , no more suffering, it was a pleasure to have known you.
