Andy was a dedicated employee at the City of Sault Ste. Marie Board of Works for 32 years.


The family would like to thank Dr. Voutsadakis, Dr. Pearce and the Cancer Clinic for their care. Also, a very big thank you to Dr. Karen Booth and her amazing nurses who supported Andy and our family anytime needed. A special thank you to home care nurses Brandy and Sue who went over and above to provide the best care and to the rest of the Bayshore Team. We don’t know how we would have made it without you. A thank you also has to be given to the Soo Medical Services for their support. 


A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
