    • Life won’t be the same without uncle Andy. I had the privilege of seeing him every Sunday morning where he always greeted you with a smile a kind word and a hug.

      I have fond memories of him coming over to our house all the time to help dad take care of the ostriches and horses. He was always so generous too. Always giving you apples from his and aunties trees as well as always talking about the newest gadget he was into or his magnets.

      His passion for Jesus and his genuine love & kindness towards all of us was and is something worth emulating. He will be dearly missed but I am so happy for the gift of salvation because I know I will see you again. Until we meet again uncle! Love you.

  5. Uncle Andy. I have lots of great memories of working with you building fences, basements and farming while I was still living in Edmonton. You were the one that let me drive the tractors and farm machines that to this day still inspires my love of heavy equipment and construction. We send our love, condolences and prayers to Auntie Eileen, Laurie, Shaunna, Rachel, Andrew and their families. May God grant you all comfort and peace during this time of loss.
