An extremely hardworking young man
Andrew was a four-sport athlete and a straight-A student. Andrew competed in hockey, golf, water polo, and swimming. Andrew refereed hockey, caddied golf, mowed lawns, and shoveled snow to save up for his first car, which he purchased eleven days after he got his license. Andrew was unconditionally loyal to his friends and family, and perhaps most importantly he was the best big brother to Zach.
Andrew donated 5 organs
and saved 4 lives
The decision to become an organ and tissue donor offers a precious gift to others: the hope for a new life.
