Like many of his friends, I met Andrew “in the wild” while playing Pokémon Go. Those of us who raid together and chat it up become good friends, and the game brought a wonderful group of people into my life. I can’t believe he is gone so soon.

I met Andrew after he joined up with our local group of Pokemon Go players. I knew him as Frostbite, and I was amazed by his knowledge of Pokemon and his passion for the game. Andrew was always friendly and quick with a funny remark.
I learned of Andrew’s medical woes in late February after he messaged me to make a special Pokemon trade. I exchanged messages with him for a time offering encouragement and hoping to ease a bit of hospital boredom. Andrew shared with me that he couldn’t wait to get out of the hospital and enjoy some favorite foods. He especially wanted to go to Polly’s Pies and have one of their giant cinnamon rolls. I will go to Polly’s and have one for Andrew, remembering a kind man with a child-like love of Pokemon and a life cut short.
I extend my condolences to Andrew’s family and to all who grieve his loss. May you find peace and comfort in the memories of happy times.

I first met Andrew in January of 2018 at the very first community day for Pokemon Go at the VP plaza. He rode up to me on his bike and asked if I was playing PoGo. We ended up chatting for 3 straight hours while we played our game and shared our stories.
From that day on, we often played PoGo together, meeting up at the VP Plaza for future community days or at gyms for raids. He had a very pure soul, always smiling, always friendly. I had the fortune of meeting some of his friends and even his girlfriend. One time, he and a friend showed up to the VP plaza with a 12-pack of soda for a raid. We did the raid, and then he shared his drinks with the group and we all just hung out and chatted for another couple hours. On days when he couldn't hang out, he was often taking care of his family, a strength I always admired.
Unfortunately, the pandemic struck and we could no longer meet in person for raids. We began to remote-raid whenever we could. He always had the absolute shiny luck! He seemed to get that shiny every time. It was always so rewarding to see his exclamations in chat before showing me his catch.
These past few months, he kept me updated on his ongoing health issues. I made sure to be someone he could share his thoughts with. We were both looking forward to the day he could get out of the hospital. We would remote-raid together whenever we could. Unfortunately, we weren't able to connect on our last try to raid together, but we were optimistic that we would be able to "next time."
Unfortunately, my brother, we just ran out of time.
Rest in peace, Andrew. We'll hang out and share sodas and PoGo stories again someday. My deepest condolences to all the family and friends for your devastating loss. You will all be in my prayers. Please continue to be safe and strong, for Andrew.
