Michael Andrade

January 20, 1978February 25, 2012

My name is Michael Andrade and I’m a 34 year old from New England. I enjoy music, cooking, and WordPress. I find that there is always something new to learn or sometimes there is a skill or talent that can be further refined.

I speak (a passable) French and Spanish and I’m studying Greek. I find conversation, whether of a useful or useless subject, is an effective tool to get people’s mind off things. A place to go, a story to tell, a song to hear, a rest for the burden on your shoulders… this is what I offer. Everyone should feel as great as I do.

I was born in Brighton, Massachusetts to Hector and Gladys Andrade; and under their care and the care of Teodolinda (to whom I affectionately refer to as “The Grandmother”), I was able to cultivate a healthy curiosity and fondness for problem solving.

Since then, I have lived and worked in Boston, Massachusetts; Hudson, New Hampshire; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Raleigh, North Carolina with a few small towns tucked in for good measure.

I focused my career path in web development with a niche specialty and expertise in WordPress. My focus on WordPress has allowed me to be a team leader and a part of many fantastic projects both professionally and personally. It is through Andrade Nation, the business face of my skills, that all the magic has been possible.

I am survived by my parents; Hector and Gladys (Perez) Andrade of Myrtle Beach, SC, my significant other; Zoe Tourlitis of Nashua, my sister; Andrea V. Golda and her husband Jason of Myrtle Beach, my niece; Coral Golda of Myrtle Beach, paternal grandmother; Teo Dunlap of Myrtle Beach, maternal grandmother; Lucy Perez of Framingham, MA and also by several aunts, uncles and cousins. I was predeceased by my grandfathers; George Dunlap, Reyes Perez and Alejandro Andrade.

Following cremation, visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm in the Zis-Sweeney Funeral Home, 26 Kinsley St., Nashua, NH.

An accomplished student, your grandmother's pride, Andrea's brother . . . as a teacher to have known you as a young student in Hudson, NH and having visited your home for "The Grandmother" whose tailoring skills were personally much admired and appreciated, I am saddened by your untimely passing. Peace with you all.

Andrea, Hector, Gladys and Zoe, I am so sorry for your loss. Mike was a talented, passionate, creative individual. He was my rock and one of my best friends through senior year. I have countless beautiful memories of him that I will look back on fondly. In the short amount of time he was in my life he affected it profoundly. He once wrote to me "in times of dark I will be your light" and he truly was to me and to all of his friends, past and present.
