We were neighbours while we lived in Victoria, and had countless fun times and memorable experiences together. We stayed up till mid nite to see if Y2K would make the world explode, and of course it didn’t. We exchanged many dinners at each others’ place, and just lived life two doors apart. I have numerous weathered wood picture frames that I made from an old fence Andy took apart and asked me to help him take it to the dump. But frugal me had other ideas. Andy and Cindy visited us after we moved to Nelson. And we have stayed in touch since. Andy, you touched our lives, and that is forever. Save some chairs for the family; have respect for the grieving. Andy was a very good man; so sorry to hear of his leaving.

My Step Dad. He was such a big part of my childhood. He was a stage tech for some of the most historic rock and roll, and metal bands of the 80s. He took me to my first concert- David Bowie when I was 5. He was the tech for that tour. What a cool guy. So sad to hear that he passed away.
Lots of love, Andy. See you on the other side. 💜

Hearing the news of the loss of Andy is heartbreaking. My heart is broken for those that still knew him well, and the great memories we all have stored of Andy Fowler. Always such a gentle human. Thank you Don Wolf for the pictures you shared. White Wolf was a band from the 80's that were on a different level, and Andy was the best stage tech. Rest In Paradise Andy, you were loved and will be missed.

Thank you for sharing Andy with us, his friends and shipmates. Please celebrate him. You were the love of Andy’s life and yet you let him sail away for long periods of time with us knowing he was doing what he loved. You let us deploy with him and work beside a man that demonstrated joy in what he did by mentoring those who followed and being friend to so many. He was quick with dry wit and had the sideways grin and twinkle that let you know mischief was afoot. Your Andy was good people. I shall always hold fond memories of sailing with Andy, one of the last of the gentleman sailors.

My condolences and warmest regard,

-Jens Simonsen
