Andrew Koenig Obituary
Koenig, Andrew
August 17, 1968 - February 2010
Thou speakest aright; I am that merry wanderer of the night..."
Andrew Koenig (born Joshua Andrew) was an actor, director, writer and producer. He passed away this past February in Vancouver after a long battle with depression.
Andrew was funny, caring, gifted, passionate and multi-talented.
He played "Boner" in the 1980's sitcom "Growing Pains," and guest starred in episodes of "21 Jump Street" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." He also had roles in "InAlienable" and "Batman: Dead End". He played "Robin" in the Los Angeles Music Center/Guilini/Eyre production of the opera "Falstaff", danced on "The People's Choice Awards" and the 1984 Olympic Opening Ceremonies with his sister.
Andrew video produced the podcast "Never Not Funny". He edited, directed and produced over a dozen films and numerous other projects. He performed and belonged to improv groups in Vancouver and LA. More recently, Andrew appeared with "Fake Radio" in LA.
A vegan and an activist for non-violence, Andrew was a compassionate, ethical man who lived according to his conscience. Most recently, he worked on behalf of the people of Burma protesting China's refusal to sanction the Burmese government's violation of its people's rights.
Andrew's disappearance resulted in search efforts by friends and family. The Vancouver Police Department was exemplary in its professionalism and compassion during this difficult time.
Andrew leaves behind his loving family - his parents Walter Koenig and Judy Levitt, his sister Danielle, his brother-in-law Jimmy Pardo, his nephew Oliver Pardo and his extended family.
His family invites contributions to the following organizations: U.S. Campaign for Burma (uscampaignforburma.org); Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services (www.vistadelmar.org); and Heal the Bay Santa Monica, CA (Healthebay.org).
