Leave Condolences


Ray and family,
So sorry for your loss. Just be comforted in knowing he is being given big hugs by his momma. She's not alone anymore. May God comfort you and the girls and the rest of the family at this sorrowful time.

Isabelle Hyland,


This is really sad news I grew up in Brigham. I seen him all the time i only knew his name ppl called him Andy. It was like everyone knew him cuz he was a tall Guy. I would always see him on the uta just riding around. Rest In Peace Andy.

Dear family,
I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Andrew. He, along with you, endured so many challenges in his short life. And he did so with dignity. Janice and I were roommates in college and I love and miss her. We always sent pictures of our children when they were born, when i lived in Ca and she lived in Brigham. Just want you to know that my prayers are with you all. I had so MUCH respect for Janice. She was a fun roommate and I KNOW she loves her children and IS INDEED with Andrew now and he and she are at peace.



We are so sorry to hear of Andrews passing he was a great person. All the bus drivers at UTA will sure miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of his family.

I may not be able to attend his viewing but I wanted to leave my condolences for your loss. Andrew was a very nice young man and I enjoyed visiting with him many times when I am there (Willow Glen) visiting my husband. My prayers are with his family but I am sure he was welcomed home by his mother.

Lisa and family.
Thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Remember there is a time for living and a time for passing, God always knows whats best. Take care and may God be with you in your time of sorrow.

Andrew & I met in peer tutor class, then later had drivers Ed together in high school. I got to help him with any class work and writing, and we soon became fast friends.! What a tender, sweet, thoughtful young man. Andrew was a legend at our school! Everybody loved him, and the hallways would echo with "hi Andrew", as he walked through them. He will always have a special place in my heart.
