November 20, 1926

to October 15, 2009

Andrew passed away October 15, 2009 in Cowichan Duncan Hospital. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 54 years, Roberta. Andy had three sons: John (Val) of Regina, Saskatchewan, Roy (Barb) of Salt Spring Island, BC, Errol (Ruby) of Qualicum, BC and two daughters: Robina (Bill) of Keswick, Ontario and Glynis (Fred) of Wheat Ridge, Colorado; nine grandsons: Chad, Dar, Tyler, Brad, Joey, Jon, Eric, Craig and Ryan, and four granddaughters: Elizabeth, Jocylen, Alayna and Carrysa; and four great-grandchildren: William, Michael, Aine and Caitlyn.

Andrew was born in Tullyvallen, N. Ireland. He was predeceased by his mother, Ida (née Preston) who passed away in 1927, and his father, John Kinnear, who passed away in 1964. Andrew, with his wife Roberta and five children, moved to Canada in 1964. They later moved to Salt Spring Island in 1969. Andrew and Roberta owned several businesses at different times on the island, and he was well known for his great story-telling and his ability to make everyone feel like they had known him for years. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. We will always love him and miss him.

Thank you to Dr. Benloulou, Dr. White, and Gail Mussell, RN, for their great care, and to Carol & Judy for their kindness. We would like to thank all our friends and also our neighbours Colleen & Geoff, and Leanna & Wayne. It was a great comfort knowing they were there.

A gathering will take place on Thursday, October 22, 2009 at the Royal Canadian Legion, Lower Hall, from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
