EXTRAORDINARILY SPECIAL KID.
Andrew was full of life and positive spirit. His charisma was contagious and he had a knack for bringing people together. A friend to everyone and beloved by his family, Andrew had a way to make everyone feel good about themselves.
Andrew’s passion and zest for life was unrelenting and he never wanted to waste a moment.
In particular, he loved music (especially Michael Jackson), scouting, painting, skiing, hiking, dancing, traveling, but most of all he loved aviation. Ever since he could walk, he dreamed that one day he would become a pilot and he had already laid down the groundwork to begin that process by taking his first flight lessons in the summer of 2018.
Andrew was a dreamer who lived his life to the fullest and embraced every special moment.
In September 2018, Andrew and his Boy Scout Troop were tragically hit by a drunk driver while hiking. He succumbed to his injuries shortly after and passed away.
The lives of his family, friends and community were forever changed by his senseless passing.
