Andre left us peacefully and in comfort on Aug. 7, 2019 after a lengthy illness.
Predeceased by his first wife, (Wendy Norris) – mother of William, David and Sara.
Predeceased by second wife – Lori.
To mourn his passing are Rene, wife; his children & stepson Jason; step grandchild Hailey; his grandchildren Simon, Gabrielle, Carmen and Todd.
Andre was always kindly, well mannered, and he had a joyful heart. He touched us with his special brand of friendly, astute humour. At eleven years of age, he was sent from England as a child migrant to the Fairbridge Farm School near Duncan. He became a master builder and ended his career as a carpentry instructor at Camosun College. He was a sailor who played a harmonica.
We are grateful and thank the staff at Ayre Manor Lodge for their good and gentle care given Andre. Many, many thanks to to Joanie, his special companion who had him laughing from the stories she told and read to him, his last day.
A private ceremony to be held at a later date. We will miss him dearly.
