March 10, 1952 – March 09, 2013
With the great sadness we announce the passing of Andrew on March 9, 2013, peacefully after a brave battle with cancer. Andrew was born in Glasgow, Scotland , moved with the family to Western Australia as a teenager, and immigrated to Canada in his early 20's. Andrew is survived by his loving wife Shimeng and beloved daughter Andrea who meant the world to him. Andrew will be sadly missed by his brother Brian; sister-in-law Angela; niece Pauline, and Nephew Mark (Clare), all of Australia; and by many relatives, co-workers and friends in BC, UK, Australia and China. Andrew will long be remembered as a gentle soul with a big heart and dry sense of humour. His great passion for photography and anything natural and beautiful led him to stay with Kerrisdale Cameras for almost 29 years while enjoying travelling to many parts of the world and later on in his career the wedding photography. A special thank you to the nurses and staff at St Michael's Hospice who helped Andrew complete his journey in comfort and with dignity. A Celebration of Andrew's life will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Hamilton Harron Funeral Home, 5390 Fraser Street, Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Brain Tumour Foundation. Condolences and memories may be sent to:
