After moving to Houston he worked at Collector’s Firearms where he found a love for classic firearms and military memorabilia. He was presently working as a provisional funeral director at Restwood Funeral Home in Lake Jackson.

Andrew....my ATJ. You used to tell me after I moved from Houston back to Toronto, Ontario that whenever I felt sad or lonely and missed you, to look up at the moon because no matter the distance between us we could both gaze upon the moon and know that we remained connected. The happiness and joy and fun you brought into my life from the moment we met in May 2008 I will cherish forever. 'Our' song and 'our' movie will always remain, just as the deep conversations we used to have about life, love, purpose and destiny are etched upon my soul. Your gifts that you blessed us with will always be remembered. I miss you more than words can describe so I will leave it at this: you took a little piece of my heart with you when you were called Home from this earthly plane and yet I know that once I return Home, my heart will be mended for I shall see you again. My world is a little less brighter without you in it Andrew however I know you are in the safest happiest place and that I can still talk to you, whether it be through my prayers or my dreams. I will never stop loving you.
Prayers and Blessing to Andrews family with hopes that they may find some peace and solitude without their bright, shining and vibrant family member here amongst them. God Bless

Hey buddy, you know it's just one of those nights when you feel weak and miss the good ol days. Missing you so much..I remember counting the stars with you that night. Something so simple and meaningful at the same time. Who knew you'd go so soon. You were so wonderful. Definitely were a blessing to everyone you came across. That one night I think back on always feels like yesterday. It's still a disbelief, it's not easy letting go. I'll keep these memories close at heart and mind. You are forever loved, never forgotten.

To the family of Andew Johnson,
What a beautiful soul this young man was. I recently met him when my precious mother passed away (09/03/13). He was one of the staff who came to mothers home. He was indeed caring & compassionate. For the next few days, he often spoke with me and made every effort to console me each time he saw me with tears. My heartfelt condolence on your loss...

I so wish I had known Drew. I have enjoyed reading about him through your postings on Facebook. So full of life, such a wonderful sense of humor, so very creative, a credit to his family, and a fine young man, this is how I believe he lived his life. I believe he died with grace, poise, and peace. Bless your heart, Char. I have known such sadness in the loss of a child and am so saddened that you are experiencing this. It has been 17 months for me since April died. It has been only recently that I don't cry whenever I speak of her. I still miss how she lit up a room with her presence, how her energy was so contagious, and how her love for my son and my grandchildren was so perfect. I think Drew will be your guardian angel. Blessings to you and your family,

Our first memory of Andrew began April 17, 2013. He came to my parent's home to pick up my Mother after her passing. My dad had a favorite song, "I Bless Your Name" by Selah - everyone had to listen before they took her. I was concerned we were taking too much time. In the days following, Andrew shared what he had felt and observed during those moments. No, we didn't take too much of their time. He was moved. I stood with him while he added the finishing touches to my Mother's face - so gentle and tender. He LOVED his job. My Daddy respected him. Andrew made a difference and found a place in my heart and my brother's. Within the next 6 months, it became apparent we would once again be in need of Restwood Funeral Home services. My Daddy passed away October 8, 2013. My brother and I specifically requested "Andrew". One more time he arrived at my parent's home and one more time he had to listen to my Daddy's favorite song! But, we knew he didn't mind! Andrew served my parents and our family well. We will never forget. It was in the next few days we learned of Andrew's passing. Shock, disbelief, extreme sadness. We have been honored and blessed to have known Andrew. Heart felt wishes of sympathy we send to Andrew's family.
