“Andrew loved the countryside especially fishing and walking. Latterly he developed an interest in watching rugby and football. Many of Andrew’s closest friends were made through these pursuits and he will be missed by them and by his family.

“We may never truly know what happened on the fateful day of Andrew’s car accident. One thing we do know, as his family and friends, our world will be a sadder place without Andrew in our lives.”
