If you knew Andy, you knew he was always full of life and ready to share a joke to lighten any situation. He was a brother, a son, an uncle and a friend to all types of people. He would give the shirt off his back, the shoes off his feet if he had it to give, and at times even when he didn't have anything to spare.
Although, he suffered from the disease of addiction throughout everything he stayed positive and loving to those closest to him. Andy was loyal to a fault, he came from a very close knit family. They overcame so many insurmountable obstacles with the most unlikely of circumstances and with their perserverance and love for eachother managed through the darkest of times, together. Andy was the eldest of five children and an uncle two beautiful babies, Abbey & Asher. The name 'Andrew' translates to 'Strong', which he embodied as a piller of strength for his 4 younger siblings, both of his loving parents, and numerous friends who became family over the years.
His family is now faced with the huge obstacle of affording his funeral expenses and navigating this process without his insight and light hearted approach to overcoming tragic circumstances.
Ultimately, Andy gave his life to those around him. His final saccrifice is one of service, as he recently made the decision to be an organ doner, and his organs will go to save the lives of many. Through that choice he will live on in the gift his untimely death has provided. In this he will, even in death, be giving to those who need him the most.
Whether you called him by Andy, Andrew, Kareem, or Dewey Morrison, he would always answer with a goofy, genuine smile and a silly little wiggle. There is no way to say how deeply he will be missed, and no way to count the number of lives he touched just by being awesome.
"Team awesome for life Bro."
