Andy was born August 27, 1988 to Walter and Cynthia (Brown) Johnson in Anchorage, Alaska. He graduated from Robert Service High School in 2006 and furthered his education attending classes at UAA. Andy was an animal lover and enjoyed cooking, snowboarding, reading, playing chess, skateboarding, hiking, camping and fishing.
"From a young age Andrew became the heart of our family always smiling and eager to help. He was an amazing person with a great sense of humor, an infectious smile and a heart of gold; a true gentleman. He had a wide range of intelligence and was very well read. Andy was a wonderful son, brother and a friend to all. He was able to find the good in everyone and gave the absolute best hugs. Andy was so busy trying to make others happy that he forgot about himself. Words cannot express our loss; he will remain in our hearts forever," wrote the family.
Andy is survived by his parents, Walter and Cynthia Johnson of Anchorage, AK; brother, Aaron Brown of Anchorage, AK; sister and brother in-law, Aimee and Kevin Boyce of Anchorage, AK; niece, Alivia Boyce of Anchorage, AK; sister, Ashley Johnson of Anchorage, AK; grandmother, Edna Brown of Soldotna, AK; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
