Andrew John Rich

1991 - 2018

EAST FALMOUTH - Our Dear Lord, with his amazing grace, has called our son and brother Andrew John home. Andy's struggle with recovery is over, he is now free of pain and is our guardian angel. Andy was his dad's pal, and forever his Mom's baby boy. He loved fiercely and had so many family and friends who loved him. His favorite team was the Boston Bruins. He loved wearing their gear, including a sweater that he had to have. A true die-hard fan, he wore it to work and won the ugly sweater contest. Andy put his heart and soul into everything he did. He was proud of his ability to learn new skills quickly and with perfection. He excelled in custom sign fabrication for Sign-Pro in Bristol, CT and more recently he worked for Coastal Life Companies on Cape Cod doing construction and landscaping work.

Andy is survived by his parents; Bruce and Debbie Rich and Michael and Linda Parker, maternal Grandma Louise Gadbois, who was his Godmother; siblings Christopher and Jodi Rich and their children Paige, Christian, Chase and Declan (Andy's godson); Nicholas Rich and Nicole Gilley and their children Damian and Dominick; Stephen Rich and Fernanda Canedo and their children Brian, Kim, Naomi, Brooke-Lynne, Cole, Christopher and 'his princess' Raegan, and Renee Pirelli. Andy is also survived by his many aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends- John Martel, Mackenzie Moen-Lisk and Jess Wozniak. Andy was predeceased by his maternal Grandpa Leon Gadbois (who was his Godfather), paternal grandparents Gordon and Ruth Rich, uncle Gordon (Skipper) Rich Jr., and cousin Thomas John Cervone.

Andrew was born in Worcester, MA on July 15, 1991. He grew up in Sturbridge and graduated from Tantasqua Regional High School in 2009. He moved to Cape Cod in 2017 and was attending Cape Cod Community College with plans to return to Western New England University to complete his engineering degree. He enjoyed disc golf and music moved his soul. Andy made many new friends in the Gosnold Community, at work and in his new home in Falmouth.

His family would like to invite you to Calling Hours Saturday June 16th from 9:30 to 11:30 AM in St. Peter's Lutheran Church, 34 Jarvis Ave., Holyoke. A Celebration of Andy's Life will follow beginning at 12:00 Noon. His favorite dinner will be served immediately following the service in the Fellowship Hall. Please join the family and share your memories. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes memorial donations be made to St. Peter's Lutheran Church, 34 Jarvis Ave, Holyoke, MA 01040, Gosnold at Miller House (payable to Gosnold) 200 Ter Heun Dr., Falmouth MA 02540 https://donate.gosnold.org/gosnold-at-miller-house or to Foundations Group Inc., c/o Michael Clancy, 53 Terance Ave, East Falmouth, MA 02536.
