He is a compassionate person with a special place in his heart for animals, especially dogs. He would never think twice before lending a helping hand. Andrew is the brother everyone wished they had and I know he will be an amazing father someday.
In the early evening of May 31st, Andrew was returning home from work to meet his girlfriend who was cooking him dinner. He never made it. Andrew lost control of his motorcycle on a curve which sent him head first into the curb. Although he was wearing his helmet, the impact resulted in severe head trauma and multiple fractures. Andrew's girlfriend did not find out what happened to him until she saw a post on facebook in the early hours of the next morning.
The brave first responders worked diligently on Andrew and he was in the ER within 8 minutes but the damage was so severe they did not think he would make it.
