Andy was an avid sports enthusiast, watching and playing many of his favourite sports (baseball, broomball, and hockey) all of his life. He especially had a love for the Toronto Blue Jays. Along with his love for sports, Andy had a passion for gardening and lawn care. Throughout his working life, he worked at the Ford Plant in Talbotville, ON. Once “retired” he kept busy with his lawn care service. Lots of good conversations had and memories made with customers and friends. He and Ora made many trips to Florida that will be cherished forever as well as trips made to the local convenience store with grandkids. Andy will be fondly remembered by for his funny personality, and “firm” way of thinking and doing things.
