After losing his beloved wife to cancer after 15 years of constantly fighting, supporting, caring for and struggling through 5 different types of cancer with Heather, no more pain, no more suffering and Andrew joins Heather once again in and for Eternity. Andrew was a strong man with a vibrant personality, a spice for life and a strong determination. May you both rest in peace.

Andrew was very much an outgoing personality with a soft heart. He always had a great story to tell and would always be there for whoever needed his help. He was un-waivered in his loyalty to his wife Heather and family and he was a person we could always count on to go out of his way. His happiest years were when he was living and working in the NWT and his family was with him. He will be sorely missed by so many.

  1. I cant express enough the feeling of loss without you. You had a full and wonderful life and accomplished so much. You truly were a strong willed man who went out of his was to help anyone. I know the last 10 months have been the hardest for you. You can now have peace and be with Mum (Heather Jacques). I know she is waiting for you. Luv you so much
    Karen ❤️❤️?❤️❤️

  2. My condolences to those you leave behind, but we can all feel grateful in knowing that we lived in a time when you were in the world. Thanks for the laughter and for being so welcoming.

  3. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family. First met Andy in Frobisher Bay (Iqaluit) when he was running by-law enforcement and he was larger than life even then. Later I worked with him, and got to know Heather, when he was with commercial enforcement in the NWT, where he was always a top performer. When he lost portions of several fingers, I thought his career was over, but he persevered through the painful physio and came back faster than I thought was even possible. Even learned how to write with his other hand. The man always managed to end each traffic stop with a thank-you from the motorist, even if he had given them a ticket. Andy is a legend up North and will be sorely missed.

  4. A very good friend who will be sadly missed. I am comforted by a treasury of warm memories. Be with Heather. You guys made living look so good. I’m sure in passing you will enjoy each others company forever.
