He was loved by many cousins, extended family, friends and co-workers. Andrew had a long-standing career in the oil and gas industry. On his days off he enjoyed quality time with family and friends. He had big dreams of owning his own brewery and often experimented his home beer brews on his family and friends. He was passionate about snowboarding in Revelstoke and dirt biking out west. Andrew was family orientated, hands on and a very proud father. He travelled the world with his career and developed friendships with people from all over. He touched so many hearts in his short life. Andrew will be fondly remembered for his sense of humor, sarcasm, witty come backs and his contagious smile. He was the life of the party and could light up any room. He will be deeply missed by many. In the words of the late Andrew Hutchison, “Drive fast, take chances”.
