LOWELL -- Christopher M. "Chris" Andrews, age 33, of Lowell, died Tuesday, October 11, 2011 in Lowell, from complications of Muscular Dystrophy.
Born in Lowell, May 7, 1978, a beloved son of Deborah Andrews and Henry Antonelli, Jr. Chris attended the J.G. Pyne Arts Magnet School where he graduated with honors and received the Presidential Award from President Clinton for Outstanding Student. He also attended the Greater Lowell Vocational School, and the Mass Hospital School in Canton, where he graduated from high school.
Chris was a very special young man who, despite many challenges, remained positive, loving and kind. His love of family and friends, compassionate nature and sense of humor were boundless. He never complained, always showing concern only for others. He was a gift from God who taught us how to love and how to forgive.
He was the cherished grandson of Elizabeth (Spence) Andrews McCarthy and the late Richard Andrews who were instrumental in raising him along with his special uncle James Andrews, and loving grandfather Gerald McCarthy.
Christopher will be greatly missed by his many family members and friends who did so much for him, including Livingston, Junior, Mike, Steve, D.J., Reggie and Ralphie, Lisa and Bob, and especially, his dear friend, Pam.
The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at Lowell General Hospital for their excellent care, especially the staff in the Intensive Care Unit. We would also like to thank Chaplain Carol for all her comforting words and prayers for Chris.
Besides his devoted parents, grandparents and uncle, he is survived by his loving sister, Sarah Andrews and her fiancé, Jonathan Mills; his beloved niece, Makayla Mills; his aunt, Marvia Andrews; cousins, Branden Andrews, and Jessica (Labousier) Hernandez and her husband, Rafael of Worcester; and his personal care giver, Carl Mascaro.
He was also the nephew of the late Doreen S. Labousier.
