Andy Dufresne passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, January 5th, 2014, at the age of 68 years. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 43 years Diane, his son Jack (Emma), his daughter Marianne (Tom), and his sister Jean Besette. He leaves behind several grandchildren whom he loved very much; Ashlain, Jessie, Wyatt, Ana, Danny, and Todd. Andy was born in Girouville, Alberta and at a young age followed in his father’s footsteps in the Bee Keeping industry. In 1968, he met the love of his life, Diane whom he married in 1969. They moved to High Level, AB where Andy joined the Halliburton Group and pursued a career as a Drilling Fluids Engineer. His commitment
and dedication was never in doubt and his passion and knowledge was passed on to many in the Oilfield sector over the course of his 30+ year career. His Footprints were imbedded deep into the ground and behind followed many others he influenced and challenged to follow the trail he blazed. Other passions in his life which he perfected were hunting, camping, fishing and of course playing Gin Rummy which many can attest to. Many fond memories were created with friends and family while sharing these passions that will be etched in our hearts forever.
Alice Ramish writes: Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on. Memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart. You will be missed but never forgotten!
