We pass on our thoughts to his family and all that had the pleasure to know him.

Devastated by this news. Andrew epitomized everything about what we stand for as a Club. Proud of his City & Region, our history & being at the heart of our community. Ironically he loved cars but could not drive. Took 3 buses a day to & from CP. The kindest of men. RIP Andrew! https://t.co/rIeWyRKf6c

Andy was kind, friendly, cheery, caring and with a huge heart. Always smiling, always helping others, always making me laugh with his jokes
One of life’s best, taken far too young. Will miss you
Stand Free Forever Andrew ❤️ https://t.co/DXUMxjGuPz
