Andrew was the type of guy that you could pick up the phone and ask him anything you wanted without the fear of sounding stupid. He always had a way of making everyone he’s speaking to feels like they were the most important person in the moment.

He was a true gentlemen with a kind heart and a quite wisdom about him. With Andrew, he had the ability of turning every situation into a positive one.

May his memory be eternal!

We are truly saddened by the loss of Andrew. The memories of our sons playing travel ball will always be etched in our minds forever. It has always been a great time in our lives. He was a great and loving father, that always had a great disposition. He will be surely missed by all. Although he will be missed by family and friends, he’s truly in a better place . He will never be alone and I know he will raise a glass with our other dearly departed brother, Zeke and say ‘Here’s to a wonderful life!’ I pray that God grants you peace & tranquility in these hard times. All our love,
Rick, Noelia, Sean, and Stephanie Mas

I had the opportunity to work with Andrew only in the recent past and in a limited number of meetings, however I was deeply impressed by his humanity and positive sense of the life. I would describe him in few words as "un Uomo Buono".

I was deeply saddened to learn about him. Today suffering reflects the nice time spent with him in the past.
I'll pray for him .

My sincere condolences to Andrew's family and friends. I am so privileged to have had the opportunity to have worked with Andrew. Andrew was a great leader and a really good person – grounded and steady in all efforts. He had so many good friends in the workplace and was very much respected by his peers and colleagues. The love and admiration he had for his family and children seeped through in every day conversations. He will be so dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Speechless about the very sad news I want to wish his direct loved ones, family, friends and colleagues my sincere condolences. I worked with Andrew the last couple of years as part of the softgel leadership team at Themo Fisher Scientific. His passion and drive were great, but more importantly the interest, care and attention he has had on my personal situation was heart-warming.

I will remember you, your smile and our collaboration realizing it's a fragile thing, this life we lead.

You will be missed but not forgotten, rest in peace Andrew.

I have worked with Andrew this last year and have only spent time on Video calls due to my being in the UK.
Work is such a big part of our lives and he was committed to doing great work. I really enjoyed working with him and he definitely knew his own mind, He was a knowledgeable and intellectual person who could have a good well-spirited debate along with the humility to change his mind if he decided that the debate had weight.
His heart was in the right place and I was deeply saddened to learn of his loss.
Please accept my condolences and I wish you all comfort as time passes.
Regards
Andy

Deeply saddened by this news and still trying to process the loss for his family, co-workers and friends. Andrew and I worked together for many years, at ConvaTec, Patheon, and Thermo Fisher. His passion for work matched that for sports, music, and especially his kids.

His absence will leave a void in many of us but his spirit will be with all of us. He will remain in the hearts of many that knew him as he made a long lasting impression with those closest. My condolences to his family.

Rest in peace Andrew, I Love you Brother!

Andrew,
I wish you could know how much I miss you.
Give me a few years, and I will meet you in Heaven for coffee. I’ll drink it and you give me more words of wisdom.
Gods Speed Son!

We in the finance groups of High Point and Tilburg were extremely fortunate to know Andrew. He was a leader, a mentor but above all else he was a dear friend.

Andrew was married to my cousin, Kathy. We first met at their wedding which was one of the most elegant weddings I have attended! He and his parents and sister impressed me as fun and loving. I'm so sorry for their loss. He and Kathy had children in the same time frame as my husband and I did. I loved seeing Andrew and Kathy raise their kids to pursue their talents. Andrew certainly was warm, welcoming and attentive. He gave his children a great foundation . Andrew's fatherhood as well as friendship will continue to influence his loved ones. God bless all those grieving him.
